Israeli Defense Minister: "Assad is a butcher and should be removed" Featured

Minister Avigdor Lieberman spoke today at Limmud FSU conference in Eilat

EILAT, Israel, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said at the opening of the Limmud FSU conference in Eilat today that Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad is a “butcher” who “should be removed from power.”

Asked about the massacre of more than 500,000 people in the Syrian civil war and the recent siege on Aleppo, Lieberman said: “Assad is a butcher, who has slaughtered and murdered hundreds of thousands of people, including by using chemical weapons. In my opinion, he should be removed from power – and we should block Iranian involvement in Syria,” said Lieberman.

When asked if Israel should get involved in Syria, Lieberman said: “Where is the international community? It's a shame that instead of focusing on the very unfortunate fact that 500 people are killed in the Middle East every day, the international community would rather criticize Israel for every new balcony built on a settlement.”

Lieberman also addressed the peace process, saying: “Any peace agreement should be based on populated-area exchange, which should also include Israeli Arabs who consider themselves to be Palestinian.”

“Territory transfers have worked successfully throughout history, and the principle conforms with international law,” he added.
