(Algemeiner) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that a "Jew-free" Palestinian state, now being contemplated in peace talks, would be tantamount to ethnic cleansing, in a trailer for an hour-long interview with Canada's CTV to be broadcast this week.
When the interviewer, CTV's Lisa LaFlamme, said that 1 in 5 Israelis are Arab, Netanyahu responded, "Sure. We're not asking them to change their religion, they have full civic rights. Now in the Palestinian state, the way its being contemplated, no Jew can live there, it has to be Jew free, ethnic cleansing. Well, what is that? There are Arabs who live here, but they can't contemplate Jews living there."
