How to use cleansing in a sentence?

  1. Marsha Levine Levine:

    Benjamin Netanyahu wants ethnic cleansing, the Jews have become the Nazis…It’s really fascinating that the JC and the people behind it claim they speak for Jews. You don’t speak for me. Never once was I quoted correctly in the past, not even about the bloody horses. I want justice for Palestine.

  2. Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus:

    The majority of Tel Rifaat is Arab and Turkmen, and if the PYD says it will capitalize on (its control), then this means ethnic cleansing, and this will not benefit Syria.

  3. Mickey Mehta:

    Today life is going through unstable paces, animals slaved in cages and food exhibited in show-cases. We eat trash, our language is brash, life is a dash and humanity is about to crash. Black is cash, party is a bash and cleansing is just a splash. Wake up, come back to nature or else a human being will just be reduced to a caricature . Let your life be naturalized, get MickeyMized.

  4. Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu:

    Russia is trying to make ethnic cleansing in northern Latakia to force all Turkmen and Sunni population who do not have good relations with the regime, they want to expel them, they want to ethnically cleanse this area so that regime and Russian bases in Latakia and Tartus are protected.

  5. Randy Credico:

    When they put this out and they used my name and my letter, they're basically trying to rationalize the cleansing, the purging of the Justice Department and the judiciary. This is very dangerous. That's a cynical move on their part.
