Livni: Kerry is Actually Defending Israel From Boycotts


Justice Minister Tzipi Livni (HaTnua) opened her weekly party meeting Monday with sharp attacks against criticism of US Secretary of State John Kerry by senior Israeli officials.

Livni tried to explain away Kerry's boycott threats against Israel, saying that "[When] the leader says to us, 'friends: the reality is going to change in the event of a political deal [between Israel and the Palestinian Authority],' this does not constitute a threat to the State of Israel, but rather defines reality as it is," Livni claimed.
