    True or False?

    "In January 2013, just days before the election, Lapid said 'I do not think that the Arabs want peace, I want to be rid of them and put a tall fence between us and them, to maintain a Jewish majority in the Land of Israel.'"

    Yesh Atid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Since there are currently as many Arabs as Jews living in the Land of Israel, is Lapid calling for Jewish rule over all people living between the River and the sea?

    He is against building new settlements, FOR cutting their budget in favor of education, AGAINST the Tal law.....

    Since the terrorist state of Israel has never declared a set border.

    "Greater Israel" can mean anything the Zionists say it means......Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, etc.
