Livni: Coalition members have 'collective responsibility' to blindly support 'peace process'

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, whose party has six of the 68 seats in the coalition, is insisting that the other members of the coalition have a 'collective responsibility' to blindly support the 'peace process.'
Livni, speaking to Army Radio, appeared to be directing her comments at Bayit Yehudi Leader Naftali Bennett and former foreign minister and Israel Beytenu chief Avigdor Liberman's after they inferred Israel's negotiating partner Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is an anti-Semite.
"I know that there are partners in the coalition that are not interested in a two state solution, but they have a collective responsibility and as long as they are part of the coalition they must support negotiations," Bennett said after Abbas said that no Israeli settlers or border forces could remain in a future Palestinian state and that Palestinians deem illegal all Jewish settlement building within the land occupied in the 1967 Six Days War.
“The president of the Palestinian Authority said he doesn’t want to see any Israelis on his land. Bad things happen when good people are silent. Good people need to act,” Bennett said yesterday.
Isn't it amazing how Livni (and the Americans) are giving the racist Abu Mazen a pass? Can you imagine what the reaction would be if an Israeli politician said that we don't want Ethiopians in Tel Aviv or if an American politician said that they don't want blacks in Greenwich, Connecticut (one of the richest cities in the US)? And rightfully so. So why does Abu Mazen get a pass?

Livni's bigger problem is that most of the Likud does not support the 'peace process' and has long since moved on from a 'two-state solution.'
Likud MK Miri Regev told Israel Radio on Wednesday that there was not majority support in her faction for the idea of a two state solution.
I will tell you where I see this going, and it's not a good place. Livni will come back with a 'deal' that no Israeli can accept. Netanyahu won't even be able to get it through the cabinet, let alone the Knesset (although he'll try). And then we'll have an explosion.

What could go wrong?

Keyword: Counties
So, it's all or nothing? Will any involved person bring up the primary establishment of counties? Even the admired Ireland has counties. Could change the dynamic of the discussion to start with counties...
