JNS.orgIsraeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman suggested that Israeli Arabs who consider themselves part of the Palestinian people should be offered financial incentives to move to a future Palestinian state.

“Those [Israeli Arabs] who decide that their identity is Palestinian will be able to forfeit their Israeli citizenship and move and become citizens of the future Palestinian state,” Lieberman wrote Friday on his Facebook page, adding, “Israel should even encourage them to do so with a system of economic incentives.”

Arabs make up about 20 percent of Israel’s population.
