Israeli defence minister wants boycott of Arab businesses

Israel's hardline Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman today called on Israelis to boycott Arab businesses in a northern district that saw rioting in protest against US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state.

The residents of the Wadi Ara region (in the north of Israel) should be boycotted as they "do not belong to the state of Israel," Lieberman told Army Radio.

"They should understand that they are not wanted here, they are not part of us" and according to the defence minister they "have no connection to this country".

"What is happening in Wadi Ara is intolerable," he said adding, "So I am calling for a boycott of Wadi Ara. Don't go there and don't buy there. They need to understand that it is impossible to demonstrate with Hezbollah flags, Palestinian flags and pictures of (Hezbollah leader Hassan) Nasrallah. To accept billions from the National Insurance (Institute) and to also destroy us from within". PTI
