Posted in 1 by beyondtheborder on August 22, 2009

The Arabs48 news Website reported that a Zionist organization calling itself Ha-Shomer Ha-Hadash (The New Guard), held a meeting on Thursday to ‘counter’ what they described as ‘the Arab embezzling of Israeli lands in the Negev and the Galilee.

The group disregarded the fact that the lands in question are owned by the Arabs, and called for bringing more Jewish settlers to live in the Galilee and the Negev.

Erez Eshil, one of the members of the group, said that Israel must bring thousands of settlers to the Galilee “or else we will lose it”, according to Eshil. 

He added that the State of Israel must be worried about the increasing number of Arabs, and described them as cancer.

“If Israel fails to realize that this is the cancer, then we will have no state at all”, he added.
