Livni Sees PA Status Upgrade as Huge Netanyahu Failure

Tzipi Livni spoke about Thursday's vote which will decide whether the PA is granted observer status at the UN, saying, "Israel's expected failure tomorrow at the UN is the result of an ongoing political default. When Israel does not initiate and lead actions - the actions are imposed on it."

"The political process with Abu Mazen and striving for an agreement, is in our interest, as it would preserve Israel as a Zionist, Jewish and democratic state. Within two weeks the world will recognize, through the failures of the Netanyahu government, a Hamas state in Gaza and a Palestinian state within the '67 borders."
