The right wing extremist and Israeli foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, in an article entitled “my blue print for a resolution” and published in the Jerusalem Post on Wednesday called for the expulsion of the remaining Palestinians from the 1948 occupied Palestine.
In his article he rejected international calls for an Israeli withdrawal to the 1967 borders saying that UN resolution 242 “never called for a full withdrawal from the West Bank,” citing what the British and the American drafters of the resolution said about the 1967 borders.
He claims that the only recipe for peace is to create two states for two different people, a Jewish state for the Jews and a Palestinian state for the Palestinians, because as he puts it the dispute is not territorial.
To do that he suggest an “exchange of populated territories to create two largely homogeneous states.”
Most importantly he emphasises that “There will be no so-called Palestinian right of return.”
To make his proposed solution sound less drastic he says: “In most cases there is no physical population transfer or the demolition of houses, but creating a border where none existed, according to demographics.”
He does not go into the details of how to deal with the Palestinian population in Acre of Haifa for example, let alone the unrecognised villages in southern Palestine.
The Palestinian state will be “demilitarized and Israel will need to retain a presence on its borders to ensure no smuggling of arms.” [ie a concentration camp]
