(IsraelNN.com) Speaking with Army Radio’s Razi Barkai Wednesday morning, MK Effie Eitam (National Union-NRP) was asked to explain his terming of Israeli Arabs a “fifth column” and his call for Israel to encourage the transfer of PA Arabs from Judea and Samaria.
“Look, in the wake of this war, the people of Israel need to begin to say the truth,” Eitam said. “The days of viewing our territory as a check book through which we can buy off the rejection of our existence here have ended. We therefore must be honest with ourselves – if we can’t give the land away and we can’t keep the land with this hostile nation upon it – we must encourage them to emigrate.”
Eitam said he was coming from a recent trip to the United States, where he discussed his ideas with Attorney General John Ashcroft. Eitam said Ashcroft was very receptive to the ideas, due to the lessons of September 11th. “The assertion that the world will not allow transfer to occur is another deception,” Eitam said.
