United Nations Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon on Thursday called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's "ethnic cleansing" remarks made earlier this week "unacceptable and outrageous," according to Israeli daily Haaretz.

While Israel has nearly two million Arabs living inside its borders, the Palestinian leadership “actually demands a Palestinian state with one pre-condition: no Jews,” Netanyahu said in a video released by his office on Friday.

“There’s a phrase for that,” Netanyahu said. “It’s called ethnic cleansing. And this demand is outrageous.”
