Housing Minister Says Livni Looking for a Scapegoat


Housing Minister Uri Ariel (Jewish Home) fired back at criticism from Justice Minister Tzipi Livni on Saturday, after Livni accused him of deliberately issuing 700 building tenders in the Jerusalem suburb of Gilo in order to 'torpedo' the peace talks. "The joke is on minister Livni, who received unlimited credit to make peace, included releasing lowly murderers, and failed completely; now she's looking for someone to blame other than herself," Ariel said after Livni took to TV to accuse him of "torpedoing" talks with he Palestinian Authority.
