Livni Blasts Bennett Over Annexation Suggestion

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni blasted Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett on Thursday, over his plan for Israel to annex Area C of Judea and Samaria, where there is a Jewish majority.

"There is a group, part of which is represented in the coalition, which does not want a diplomatic settlement and does everything to sabotage it. This group and its leaders should tell the truth to the citizens of this country: they are leading to a binational state," Livni said during a speech in a conference in Eilat.
