on the realignment from UK FT
"The foreign minister,Mr Lieberman, a former nightclub bouncer who immigrated to Israel from Moldova at the age of 20, has drawn criticism at home and abroad for his diatribes against Israel’s Arab minority.

He also sparked controversy last week after stating that peace talks with the Palestinians on the creation of a Palestinian state, launched at the US-backed Annapolis summit in ­November 2007, had “no validity”.

“If he will face an indictment...it could be difficult for him to continue in his ­position.” Web Link
