A day after the Likud approved its merger with Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman's Yisrael Beytenu party, Liberman went to the Golan Heights Tuesday and declared that "ceding the Golan Heights would be suicidal."

Liberman, looking out towards Quinetra, told reporters that "unfortunately in recent years we have seen a number of attempts to negotiate over the Golan Heights. The Golan is an integral part of Israel, and I think that recent events prove that."

Liberman said that al-Qaida, which "sits just a short distance away in Quinetra, would be on the Kinneret and the hills and all the kibbutzim and communities would be under the threat by all kinds of the most radical elements in the Muslim world."
