Quotation from Binyamin Elon “Make their life so bitter that they will transfer themselves willingly” — Dec. 2001

Minister (Moledet Party) in the Sharon Government.

Author : Thematics :

There is voluntary transfer, transfer by agreement and transfer during war. Voluntary transfer means helping Arabs to want to get on the buses – “Coercing them until they say we want to,” as it were. We can play with this “we want to” on the political and moral levels. For example, I can close the universities to you, I can make life hard for you, until you want to leave.

Quoted by Shulamit Aloni in Murder of a population under cover of righteousness . Haaretz, March 6, 2003.
