I’m not the biggest fan of Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, but a good comeback is a good comeback.
In a question and answer session following [her] speech, Tibi (United Arab List-Ta’al) requested to respond to livni’s comments, and told her “Israel is an apartheid state. How can you speak about democracy when you speak about a Jewish state?”
From the stage, Livni said in response that, “If we return to ’47, a Jewish state and an Arab Palestinian state [were on the agenda]. Do you also not agree to this? The fact is that you are an MK in Israel, and represent 20 percent of the public, and can say whatever you please. This is the proof that Israel is a democratic state.”
