Lieberman is da man

Avigdor Lieberman sure told the Arab MKs, and rightfully so:
Yisrael Beiteinu Chairman MK Avigdor Lieberman managed to cause an uproar in the Knesset when he called for the execution of Knesset Members that collaborate and meet with terrorist groups.

“We requested that in the government guidelines it would say explicitly that all the inciters and collaborators with terrorism that sit in this house should bear the brunt of the penalty for those actions,” Lieberman said from the Knesset plenum. “All those who continue to meet freely with Hamas and Hizbullah – who go on monthly visits to Lebanon. Those who declared Israel’s Independence Day to be ‘Nakba’ [Arabic for ‘catastrophe’ -ed.] Day and raised black flags…

“World War Two ended with the Nuremberg Trials. The heads of the Nazi party went to be executed – but not just them, also those who collaborated with them. Just like [prime minister of Vichy France during WWII Pierre] La Valle was later executed, I hope that this is the fate of the collaborators in this house.”

The Russian immigrant was loudly heckled by Arab MKs at that point, but pushed on with his speech. “Just like La Valle was brought to justice – you will be brought to justice,” he said, addressing the hecklers directly. “In exactly the same way!”

Lieberman also attacked the Kadima Party from various angles. “For the first time in the history of Israel, a coalition has been formed that is anti-Aliyah,” Lieberman declared. “A coalition against Aliyah is the most damning trait of this government. Aliyah was always the soul and the central path of Zionism – nothing to do with Yisrael Beiteinu or Avigdor Lieberman.

“This government rejected Aliyah as a priority. We carried out negotiations, with Kadima. Kadima’s proposed guidelines mentioning Aliyah only in the 55th clause – the last clause of the entire document. I see now in the final draft, it is still only the 42nd clause – that is where the Kadima government places Aliyah in its order of importance.”

Lieberman said that Kadima, which had campaigned heavily among the Russian-speaking public, had betrayed its Russian immigrant voters. “In all of its ads – every week - Kadima promised the Russian public civil marriages and immediately turned their back on that promise to recruit Shas to the coalition,” he said, adding a call to Kadima’s Russian members to quit the party in protest of their “betrayal.”
Atta boy, that's the spirit! And it wouldn't surprise me if they eventually do - Marina Solodkin, formerly of Labor, did not vote in approval of the government coalition on Thursday. As with the case surrounding the resignation of Uriel Reichman, this too is the sign of another crack in Kadima.
