Livni: 2 States is Only Way to Protect Zionist Vision


Tzipi Livni spoke to students at Bar-Ilan University on Monday afternoon, telling them, "Bar-Ilan University is the university that educated me on Jewish values...that same Judaism which symbolizes the values required by each and every person, Judaism which we should reflect in our behavior inside and towards the outside world, that same Judaism that I am proud of because I see myself first and foremost as a Jew and then as an Israeli."

Livni related this to her political platform, saying, "I hope to reach an agreement just to preserve Israel as a national home for the Jewish people. Anyone who thinks that the story of the two state solution is because we are weak or doing favors for Mahmoud Abbas, the Arab world, Obama or John Kerry - this is absolute nonsense. This is the only way to protect the Zionist vision and the national home for the Jewish people."
