Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman proposed Friday that Arab citizens of Israel be offered financial incentives to leave the country and relocate to a future Palestinian state.Lieberman has in the past called on Israeli Arabs, who make up about 20 percent of Israel's 8 million population, to take a loyalty oath if they want to remain in Israel, a measure that Netanyahu denounced at the time.A poll carried out in 2010, after Lieberman addressed the United Nations and set out plans for the borders of a future Palestinian state to be redrawn to include Arab towns in Israel, showed that 58 percent of Israeli Arabs opposed the idea.
