Quote For The Day

"If you read the Hebrew dailies (which I do not), you can often see within front-page inches of each other two articles about Lieberman: one about his intentions as foreign minister; the other about how he is scrambling to evade arrest.  The fact is that he is a thug in personal demeanor and a thug in political belief.  He is, as I have already written, a Jewish neo-fascist who deliberately enrages Israeli Arabs rather than engages them.  Now, engaging them is not a simple matter, and their political leadership is mostly made up of reckless agitators who are also not enrolled in the project of engagement.  Yet the very future of the Jewish commonwealth depends on some amity and comity with its Arab citizens.  Think about Lieberman's vulgar trick to require of them a loyalty oath.  The loyalty of immigrant Muslims in European countries is fast becoming a matter of concern.  But Israel's Arabs are not immigrants.  And they will not be emigrants," - Marty Peretz.
