    Trump must forge anti-terror coalition with Israel and Arabs, Liberman tells Jpost

    According to Liberman, this coalition would be similar to the one the US established ahead of the First Gulf War in 1991, but would this time include Israel.

    The US should establish a regional coalition to fight terrorism that would include, for the first time, Israel alongside moderate Arab states, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman told The Jerusalem Post. In an exclusive interview this week, Liberman, who became defense minister in May, spoke about the outcome of the Elor Azaria trial, the investigation against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and ways Israel can work with US President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming administration. The full interview will appear in the “Frontlines” section of Friday’s Post.

    According to Liberman, this coalition would be similar to the one the US established ahead of the First Gulf War in 1991, but would this time include Israel. He is also confident that Arab states that do not have formal ties with Israel would join and serve alongside the Jewish state. “The moderate Arab world understands that the real threat against it is not Jews, Zionism or Israel, but rather the radicals in the Muslim world,” he said. “I think they would come to a coalition with us, under pressure from the United States.”

    According to Liberman, this coalition would help not only in fighting terrorism but also in building trust between Israel and the Palestinians. While declaring his support for a two-state solution, Liberman said that the model needs to shift from a state based on the “land for peace” model to one that includes swaps of land and populations.

    there is no moderate Islam. So there can't be "moderate" Arab states. Nothing but looney tunes if Lieberman believes this. :ohno
