Livni to PM: Look at World and Not at Coalition


Opposition Leader Tzipi Livni said, Monday morning, "In the next few days, the government of Israel will have to decide if it continues to sit passively on the fence and let the world decide for us, to determine our future-and in this case, every outcome will be bad for the state of Israel. Or maybe the prime minister will stop looking at his natural partners and finally initiate the process that the whole world is waiting for."

Addressing a special Knesset session called by Livni's Kadima party on diplomatic and social justice issues, the former acting prime minister added, "[Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu thinks that everything is in order. The world is with us. The United States is with us. Europe is with us. What's really wrong? But when I hear these texts, I ask if he lives in such a reality [show] that the echoes of reality don't reach his room."
