Avigdor Lieberman has spoken at a conference
warning what a withdrawal to the 1967 or even 1949 borders would bring:
(IsraelNN.com) Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, in an address at the Saban Forum on Saturday night, warned that a withdrawal to the 1967 borders would only exacerbate Israel's troubles with its Arab population.
Lieberman said the establishment of a Palestinian Authority state in Judea and Samaria would not solve the Arab-Israeli conflict; instead, it will draw it closer, to within the pre-1967 borders.
Arab communities in the Galilee and the Negev -- which include Bedouin and Druze, both relatively loyal to Israel at present -- are likely to demand autonomy once they see Arabs in Judea and Samaria living in an independent state, he said.
There is something to what he says. Worse, it would only further the negative influence of segregation, which would not help anyone.
