Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman yesterday openly incited against Palestinians living in Israel saying they constitute the main problem to Israel’s security.
“I do not care about the Palestinian state, what matters to me is the Jewish state.”
Israeli DM Lieberman: "The Palestinian state simply does not interest me. I am interested in the Jewish state…The fact that in Israel there is a 20% Arab population that goes out…to demonstrations with Palestinian flags…That's the main problem." https://t.co/IZ5C7JOtRL pic.twitter.com/mK3gvcXmsX

He added that 20 percent of Israel’s population is Arab and they demonstrate carrying Palestinian flags, not Israeli flag.
“This is the main problem. We have to worry about the Jewish state. The other things are less important. Israel’s interest is a Jewish and secure state.”

Lieberman was referring to US President Donald Trump’s remarks in which he reiterated his support for a two-state solution.
According to Trump, the majority of Israelis agree with the two-state solution, but no one wants to say so. Trump also said that he believes the two-state solution seems more reasonable than any other proposal.
