250 THEY MUST GO

bThe results of the enlightened and “brilliant improvisa- btion” can be seen in the years of riots, rebellion, hatred, and bmurder of Jews. The massacre of six Jews in Hebron, the stoning bof soldiers, the bombing of buses—all these occurred because of bthe policy. Israel’s liberal policy went so far as to allow elections bfor mayors in Judea-Samaria in April 1976. The results were a bsweeping victory for PLO supporters in almost every municipal- bity. “The Israelis are shocked—they didn’t expect such results,” bcrowed Ramallah’s Karim Khalaf.

bRioting and uprising became so bad that the foreign bminister of Israel on January 23, 1979, warned the Arabs of bJudea-Samaria and Israel that if they allowed themselves to be b“carried away by the mood of fanatical Islam,” they would “pay bvery dearly for it.” Strange words from Mr. Begin’s foreign bminister, whose name was Moshe Dayan. . . .

That is the way bto encourage emigration and spare Israel tragedy.

bI urge the adoption of a program to deal with the Arab bproblem in Eretz Yisrael, with its basis the real rational and bJewish relationship of citizen, nation, and state.

bI urge the adoption of the following program to clarify the bcharacter of the nation, the state, and its citizens and the posi- btion of its noncitizens; and to prepare the framework for the btransfer of Arabs from the Land of Israel (the state and the terri- btories liberated in 1967):

bThe land, the state, exists to serve the people. Only tyrants bsay the opposite. In the beginning there was the family, tribe, bclan, people. They have a common origin, history, heritage, des- btiny. The land has a definite, specific function. It exists to serve bthe people as a vessel to hold them and to allow them to live their b
