What Is Israel Thinking In Selecting Lieberman As FM?

Nations have the right to select whomever they desire for positions in government, but when a nation chooses an outspoken bigot who has insulted neighboring countries as its foreign minister, the question must be asked –“what was Israel thinking in placing Avigdor Lieberman as their Foreign Minister?” Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit told the Israel government in blunt language that until the attitude of Lieberman changes, he will not be welcome in his country nor will Egyptian leaders work with him. “I can’t imagine that his feet will step on Egyptian soil as long as his positions remain as they are.” Loud mouth Lieberman once threatened to bomb the Aswan Dam in Egypt.

Lieberman and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu still have not figured out reality– the American government wants a Palestinian state and will not tolerate aggressive ignorant men like Lieberman in the position of foreign minister unless he makes dramatic changes in his attitude and language. A first step is to apologize to Egypt and then come out in support of a Palestinian state.
