At Harvard, Livni Says Bibi Wasted Two Years Before Talking to PA
Opposition leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima) criticized on Tuesday the current government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for wasting two years before conducting negotiations with the Palestinians.
In a speech at the Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, Livni said that the Israeli government must make the decisions that will save what remains of the negotiations, assuring that Kadima will support the prime minister if he makes these decisions, and urged him to make them quickly.
Livni said that ending the conflict with the Palestinians is a clear Israeli interest, and not a favor to the president of the United States.
She stressed that the time has come to reach decisions on the matter and said that avoiding the decisions hurts Israel’s interests and warned that the status quo is dangerous.
