If giving the Arabs our Land won't give us peace, then why even try it?
The following is a translation of an excerpt of the interview broadcast this evening on Channel 2 news:
MK Tzipi Livni: The idea that some [settlers] will remain by the grace of the Palestinian state and Palestinian security appears to me to be very problematic.
Channel 2 reporter Udi Segal: If you think that the Palestinian state that will be established will murder Israeli citizens who remain there -- that we are going to make a peace arrangement with these murderers? Either there will be peace or there will be a band of murderers.
Livni: I never sold peace in the sense of "new Middle East"[AL: a phrase coined by Shimon Peres]. We live in a harsh neighborhood. The "new Middle east" isn't going to plop down on us tomorrow and were aren't going to be living in different surroundings."
