Mesika: Livni Appointment Strategic Error, Political Folly


The head of the Shomron Regional Council, Gershon Mesika, on Thursday condemned the agreement whereby Tzipi Livni will serve as Justice Minister and will be in charge of the negotiations with the Palestinian Authority.

"To let Tzipi Livni conduct these negotiations, is like saying that a serious traffic offender can be the police chief of traffic" said Mesika. "We all still remember the folly of the Annapolis conference. Tzipi Livni is currently the most extreme representative of the Oslo concept aura, and the only one who still speaks about it, while even Meretz keeps it hidden today."
