Uzi Arad Spills the Beans
These are the words of the man who will advise the next Israeli government on security matters. (From an interview with Israeli TV Station Arutz Sheva.)
... I don’t think that one has to go that far because at the end of the day, I don’t think the majority of Israelis want to see themselves responsible for the Palestinians. We do not want to control the Palestinian population. It’s unnecessary. What we do want is to care for our borders, for the Jewish settlements and for areas which are unpopulated and to have our security interests served well. But also to take under our responsibility these populations which, believe me, are not the most productive on earth, would become a burden. We want to relieve ourselves of the burden of the Palestinian populations - not territories. It is territory we want to preserve, but populations we want to rid ourselves of.

And by the way, doesn't Mr Arad look like a cross between George Castanzza and Rudy Gullianni ?
