"Minorities are the world's biggest problem," Israel Beiteinu Chairman Avigdor Lieberman was quoted as saying on Sunday morning.
In an interview with the British Sunday Telegraph, Lieberman said that, likewise, the Arab minority in Israel was "a problem" and that it must be separated from Israel to create a Jewish-Zionist state.
The Israel Beiteinu chairman added that Cyprus was the best model for the separation he proposed between Jews and Arabs.
Lieberman also said that Iran was leading an axis of evil and that it was an international threat the world must unite against.
He went on to say that Israel was on the front line of a war of civilizations between the free world and extremist Islam.
