He once called peace with Palestinians unattainable. He stressed "not next year and not for the next generation."

"Our proposal," he said, "is: No to unilateral concessions, no to continuing the settlement freeze, yes to serious negotiations, and mutual gestures of good faith."

He offers none of his own. He stresses Israel "should prepare for war and be strong." He wants Greater Israel Arab-free. He leaves nothing too extreme off the table to achieve it.

Earlier he called for hanging all Arab MKs for treason. He urged destroying Palestinian society.

He said "(I)t would be better to drown (Palestinian) prisoners in the Dead Sea if possible, since that's the lowest point in the world."

As transportation minister at the time, he expressed willingness to supply buses to expedite the mission.

He believes "pandering" to international opinion is weakness, not strength.

Palestinian supporters call him the racist right's most prominent spokesman. With him in high office, Arabs face horrific persecution, ultimate expulsion, and possible extermination.

A Final Comment

On December 14, Haaretz criticized Weinstein going soft on Lieberman. "Heads must roll," it headlined. Law enforcement "badly shot itself in the foot." 

MK Lieberman was indicted on minor charges, "not the deputy prime minister or the foreign minister."

"The place for a (criminally indicted) minister".is not in the cabinet." It's not in any position of authority, great or minor.

Civil servants charged with criminal offenses would be sacked or otherwise forced to resign. "This rule must apply to elected officials as well."

Lieberman's legal fate remains to be determined. At worst, he'll receive minor punishment. 

April 2011 headlines said his indictment for money laundering and other major crimes was imminent. "Weinstein failed to explain (why he) changed his mind."
