Livni - Netanyahu meeting: No progress

If we're being told the truth, the private meeting between Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu and Kadima leader Tzipi Livni that broke up around 11:30 Sunday night at the Inbal Hotel did not make much progress, although the two agreed to meet again. So says Israel Radio.

The only substantive report we got on the approximately two-hour meeting was that Livni insisted that the government's founding principles include "two states for two peoples" and Netanyahu said that "there are so many things on which we agree, like Hezbullah, Hamas and Iran, why start with the things on which we disagree?"

'Unity' is a long way off.

Netanyahu meets with Ehud Barak - the Labor party leader and current Defense Minister - on Monday.

Tzipi Livni overlooks the point the Palestinians don't want a state even though for most of the last 15 years, various Israeli governments have tried to persuade them to accept it.

Leaving that issue aside, what are are the real differences between the Likud and Kadima? None. One wonders why Livni is so hung up over an issue that has no chance of being settled in this generation, if ever.

Only a party with no ideology could put an issue that wasn't even the defining issue in the past election forward as the main reason it should stay out of the government.

That's hopenchange, Kadima-style!s
