Israeli Defense Minister Condemn Palestinian Poet

Israeli Defense Minister Lieberman recently compared some Palestinian poetry which was broadcast on Army Radio to Mein Kampf.
Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Thursday compared Army Radio's broadcast of a program about Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish with "glorification of the literary marvels of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf." ...
Lieberman, who accused Darwish of calling for the expulsion of Jews in his poems, said further that as opposed to what the program posited, the poet cannot be included as part of Israel's narrative. He said that "by the same logic we could add the Mufti al-Husseini to the Israeli narrative or broadcast a glorification of the literary marvels of Adolf Hitler's 'Mein Kampf.'
