PA Reacts: ‘Netanyahu’s Offer to Liberman to Join Coalition Shows That Israel Favors Extremism’

The Jerusalem Post reports: Avigdor Liberman joining the Israeli government demonstrates that Israel favors extremism and reinforcement of occupation and settlements over peace, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry said in a press statement issued on Thursday.

“The appointment of Liberman to serve as a minister in Netanyahu’s government is an answer to the regional, international and French efforts to reinvigorate the Israeli-Palestinian peace process,” the statement read.

In a meeting that lasted less than an hour Wednesday afternoon, Liberman accepted Netanyahu’s offer of the defense and immigration and absorption portfolios and support for key Yisrael Beytenu- sponsored legislation.
