Yair Lapid and Tsippi Livni are senior members of the Netanyahu coalition. They aren't in some minor Leftist opposition party. Lapid is Finance Minister and Livni is "Minister for Peace Negotiations," a specially tailored ministry for her to push for "peace" sic.
Livni called on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to "prove that he is a partner" for peace.So I guess she'd be without a job if she admitted the truth.
"We are in a crisis," she said. "What happened in the last week will need to be repaired." (Jerusalem Post)
Livni reminds me of Cinderella's ugly stepsister trying to fit her big fat foot into the glass slipper.
Too bad this isn't a joke!
No matter how hard Livni and the Americans try, they can never really turn Mahmoud Abbas into a real peace partner.
