RAMALLAH, March 4 (JMCC) - Israeli opposition leader Tzipi Livni
attacked the leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
as news reached Israel
that Palestinians and Israelis were likely to embark on a program of indirect talks.
Speaking at a special session called Wednesday after 40 opposition MKs signed a demand for the prime minister to address the Knesset
on the subject of “The State of Israel under Netanyahu’s leadership – to where?” Livni blasted the premier.
Netanyahu’s administration, she said, had not made substantial progress in foreign policy or domestic affairs during his first year in office. She further accused Netanyahu of having risen to his post through manipulations and politicking.
Livni has been under pressure from within her party to join Netanyahu in a unity government, therefore widening his mandate for talks. Read
