    Leiberman has been a disgrace to Israel and to the Jewish people worldwide. He is thought of with such disdain that Netanyahu had to have his Defense Minister, Ehud Barak, meet with foreign leaders because none of them wanted to meet with the facist Leiberman. Sadly, his worldview seems to have been accepted by more and more of the Israeli public and because of that Israel is seen by more and more people around the world (and not just the Arab countries) as a country bent on being an occupying power forever, with the ongoing treatment of the Palestinians a source of anger that has made Israel a pariah in the eyes of most of the world community. Loyalty oaths, the debasement, disparagement, and belittleling of anyone who desires a just and lasting peace to the Israeli Palestinian conflict is a direct result of the acceptance of Avigdor Leiberman and everything he stands for. In todays Israel not only would David Ben Gurion, Golda Meir, and Yitzchak Rabin be considered extreme leftists but Menachem Begin would probably be attacked as well as being too liberal. The true face of Israel has become Avigdor Leiberman and that is very, very sad.
