Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said "The Palestinian Authority has adopted the German idea of Judenrein," for clearing residential areas of Jews, Army Radio reported Thursday.

The foreign minister urged all nations to take the PLO comments into account when they vote for Palestinian statehood recognition at the UN next week.
