Lieberman labeled former Kach terrorist
Quote:A former Kach leader says he is willing to testify that Israeli premier candidate Avigdor Lieberman was a member of his terror group.
Former Kach secretary general Yossi Dayan told Ha'aretz on Tuesday that Lieberman, leader of Yisrael Betinu Party and current candidate for the prime minister post in the upcoming Israeli elections, became a member of the Kach terrorist group upon immigrating to the occupied lands.
Dayan said he issued Lieberman with a party membership card, which was used by the politician for a short period.
The current Lieberman electoral campaign has managed to provoke outrage among Israeli Arabs whom have been criticized by the Yisrael Betinu leader over their elected officials in the Knesset.
Dayan went on to affirm his strong belief about Lieberman, saying he is willing to testify in front of any committee to confirm his statements.
"I don't recall to what extent he was active in the movement, but if he denies [this], I am ready to testify in any forum that Lieberman was indeed a member for a short amount of time," said Dayan.
Ultra-nationalist activist Avigdor Eskin said he had also met Lieberman several times at the movement's office in al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Eskin described Lieberman as a typical "Kach member" that "hates Arabs".
Lieberman is notorious for his anti-Arab racist remarks and unbridled tongue. Some believe him to be a very dangerous and sophisticated politician who has won support through racism.
Kach is a group that seeks armed confrontation to expel all Arabs from native Palestinian lands to achieve the goals of the 'Greater Israel'. The group was formed in 1971 by Me'er Kahana, shortly after he immigrated to Palestine. Kahana was assassinated in the United States in 1990.
Kach is considered as a terrorist organization by Israel, Canada, the European Union and the United States.
When the Kach political movement was established, it set its goal to have a Jewish state in both banks of the Jordan River, which meant occupying Jordan and Palestine.
The Kach movement participated in the 1984 elections in Israel and won one seat; the movement was barred from participating in the elections for its racist ideology in 1988 and was officially declared as a terrorist movement in 1994.
The Ha'aretz report comes one week after the police questioned Lieberman's daughter and six of his aides over a corruption scandal.
The probe is part of an investigation into a series of bribery, fraud and money laundering allegations, which have implicated the circle of the Yisrael Beiteinu chairman's close associates.
