Livni blasted for disloyalty

Likud faction chairman Zev Elkin has blasted opposition leader Tzipi Livni for her performance with Christiane Amanpour on ABC's This Week on Sunday.
“This is yet another example of Livni displaying her inability to be statesmanlike at a time when Israel requires unity,” Likud faction chairman Ze’ev Elkin said.

“The opposition leader should be joining the government in defending the country on diplomatic issues, as Netanyahu did during Operation Cast Lead and the Second Lebanon War. I am not surprised by the behavior of Livni, who has over and over again broken her promise to put the good of the country ahead of her party and her personal goals.”

In the interview, Livni reiterated her mantra that “a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians is in [the] Israeli interest, it’s not a favor to President Obama.”


Livni told Amanpour that “my views about the peace process and the need to achieve peace are different from this coalition.”

The opposition leader said she believed it was a mistake for Israel to reject the US request for a 90-day freeze on settlement building activity.

“In choosing between building more buildings or making peace, I prefer to make peace,” she said.

Livni said she offered to form a coalition with Netanyahu’s Likud Party on several occasions.

“I offered Netanyahu in the past, more than once, to have a different coalition that can not only speak about the idea of two states for two peoples, but also translate it into peace treaty with the Palestinians. He decided to have this coalition, unfortunately,” Livni said.
What a disingenuous traitor. The reason Kadima isn't in the coalition is that Livni can't accept anything less than equal standing with Netanyahu. Just like the Arabs still think they won the war, Livni still thinks she won the election. It would have been better to have no 'representative' of Israel on that show than to have had Livni. But then Amanpour knew that when she invited her.

Tzipi Livni isn't exactly bright. But even she knows an agreement with the Palestinians isn't going to happen even if Kadima ran the government.
