Dick Armey calls for ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians.

That’s right. Boot them right out.


Armey retracted his statement afterwards, saying that “lawabiding” Palestinians should not be kicked out of their homes. I watched the MSNBC Chris Matthews show that broadcast the retraction.

I thought “ethnic cleansing” was a euphemism for genocide in a region, not moving people out - is it, or does it mean “removing an ethnic group by whatever means”?
