Justice Minister Tzipi Livni on Tuesday evening criticized the MKs from the Knesset’s Land of Israel Lobby who met with the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro. Following the meeting, the MKs sent a letter to Shapiro in which they thanked him for the meeting but also demanded that the U.S. not dictate to Israel about an agreement with the Palestinian Authority.
In response Livni said, "Frivolously and with a lack of understanding and responsibility they are hurting our relations with the superpower that is pivotal to Israel's security. Along the way they also personally insult Ambassador Dan Shapiro.”
