Here comes Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman

Haaretz and the BBC are reporting that Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman have reached a deal wherein the far-right politician will become Israel’s foreign minister.

If so, you can kiss the peace process goodbye for a while, if it is not gone for good. Israel’s international standing is going to take a major nosedive.

Already, EU foreign affairs chief Javier Solana has warned that the way "the European Union will relate to an (Israeli) government that is not committed to a two-state solution will be very, very different."

Lieberman’s party, Yisrael Beitenu, is getting five additional cabinet slots, including internal security.
