The Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, known for his controversial stance advocating the 'transfer' of Palestinians with Israeli citizenship, has drafted his own map to “solve” the Israel-Palestine conflict, in which all land taken from the Palestinians by Israeli brute force would be allowed to remain in Israeli hands, leaving Palestinians with several non-contiguous land reservations made up of 13% of their original land, and refugees would be denied their internationally recognized right of return. more >>
