Livni: Without Diplomacy There Will be More Violence


Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said on Friday that Israel must be able to work through diplomatic means to ensure quiet in the south. 

"We can not for a moment savor the quiet that exists without expecting the next stage. If we do not support this with other elements, we can find ourselves in a few weeks in yet another round of conflict and violence," she said.

"The first step is to act to bring [Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud] Abbas to Gaza," added Livni, who spoke at a meeting of the Commercial Economic Forum in Rishon Lezion.
