Lieberman posted on his Facebook page, “There is no reason that…[MKs] Ayman Odeh, Bassel Ghattas or Haneen Zoabi will continue to be citizens of Israel.” The defense minister also said the leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel’s Northern Branch, Sheikh Raed Salah, should be expected to emigrate.
