Wherever the border lands, many Arabs want to stay on the Israeli side
UMM AL-FAHM, ISRAEL — The Globe and Mail
A plan being promoted by Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is worrying a lot of Arab Israelis who fear they might become collateral damage in any peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
The plan, first proposed by Mr. Lieberman almost a decade ago, has been brought to prominence in the past three months. It calls for the border between Israel and a future Palestinian state to be moved a few kilometres west so that an area in central Israel, populated almost entirely by Arab Israelis, would fall inside the state of Palestine.
