Even Livni says keeping 'settlements' is required for 'peace'

Speaking at a Jerusalem Post conference, the woman whose party has ads up comparing 'despair' (Netanyahu and Lieberman) with hope (Livni), and 'international ioslation' (Netanyahu and Lieberman) with a 'political agreement' (Livni), has actually come out and said that keeping 'settlements' is required for 'peace.'
"It doesn't matter what you think about settlements," Livni said with uncharacteristic bluntness. "We have settlement blocs close to the Green Line and the only way for the conflict with the Palestinians to end is for Israel to keep them. Any pre-agreement by the international community to a withdrawal to 1967 borders before the talks occur, makes it difficult to negotiate. it was clear in the talks I conducted with the Palestinians that there would not be return to 1967 borders."
Livni said she is frustrated as an Israeli when the international community compares casualties caused by the IDF, which acts to defend Israel and target terrorists, to those killed by terrorists who target civilians.
"The message terrorists need to hear is that there are things that are unacceptable to the international community," Livni said. "Soldiers feel that they cannot act against those who try to harm them."
The ambassadors were shocked that Livni criticized them. I'm shocked that she actually said something that's almost rational. Yisrael Beiteinu picked up the pieces on Twitter.
"Tzipi Livni says no connection between settlements and security, standing in opposition to decades of even Left-wing thinking," a Yisrael Beytenu spokesman wrote.
The Yisrael Beytenu spokesman added later: "Livni ignores that freeze in upgrade in relations with EU was under her administration. Easy to blame others for her mistakes."
Livni ignores something far more important: When she was foreign minister, her boss offered the 'Palestinians' far more than anyone thought possible, and far more than the maximum Israel can give without endangering its security. And the 'Palestinians' turned it down.

What could go wrong?

Fascinating that Carl included an apparent excerpt from code from the Bible. There have been several really intriguing programs on the History Channel about the purported Bible Code here in the US.

I frankly don't know what to make of it. Some very serious mathmeaticians/Bible scholars seem to give the existence of such a code great credence. Does Carl or any other Israel Matzav reader have any comments to make about this Bible Code or suggestions for further reading, in English?
