Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman called the rioting over the Prawer Plan on Saturday "serious but expected" and the situation in the south "catastrophic."

"It is our duty to stop the situation in which there are some citizens to whom the laws of planning and construction apply and there are others who ignore them and used violence to ensure the laws don't apply to them," Liberman wrote on Facebook. According to Liberman, "this isn't a social problem or a housing crisis, but a battle for the land...We are fighting for the national lands of the Jewish people and some are intentionally trying to steal them and forcibly take them over. We cannot close our eyes and escape this reality."

The Yisrael Beytenu chairman called for the government to deal with the situation before it becomes impossible by building modern cities for Israeli Arabs, with tall buildings and infrastructure.



"Building permits are not only for Jews," he explained.

Liberman also called for the government to reexamine the Prawer plan and cancel benefits the Beduin were supposed to receive, writing that if there is no agreement on the whole bill, then none of it should be implemented.
