Israel Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman, who was once seen as one of Israel's most right-wing politicians, called for dividing Jerusalem on Wednesday in an interview with The Jerusalem Post. Lieberman said that he would give the Palestinians Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem such as Sur Baher and Jabal Mukaber, along with heavily Arab areas in the Galilee, in return for expanded settlement blocs in Judea and Samaria. "There are Arabs in Jerusalem whose only connection to the state is that they go once a week to Salah a-Din street to get their National Insurance Institute payments," Lieberman said. "I don't think taxpayers should be paying for them anymore."
