"We are ready for exchanging populations and territory," said Israel Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman at a press conference Monday.
"It's wrong to fix the Palestinian problem without addressing the Israeli Arab problem," Lieberman continued, saying that the Jewish people didn't pray to return to Anata or Shuafat and not even to Taibe or Um-El-Fahm.
"We are ready to exchange Anata and Shuafat for Givat Ze'ev and Gush Etzion. Their only connection to Israel is that they come for NIS 11 billion in national insurance while the taxes collected from them is a fraction of that," said the Israel Beiteinu chairman.
