Live and Let Livni
Bad: Israeli Opposition leader Tzipi Livni has gone on to television to badmouth the Israeli Prime Minister to an American audience.
Worse: While appearing with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.
Even worse: In an interview with the notoriously anti-Israel Christiane Amanpour.
You can see the interview here:
I find this extremely damaging.
For instance, notice how Livni answers Amanpour’s loaded first question by basically admitting that Israel humilated the US. She also admits Israel could do more to help Fayyad, even though we know the PA is constantly inciting violence against Israel.
By doing, Livni is further undermining Israel’s standing in what seems to be a bid to bolster her own standing.
Dang, I’d rather she was making coffee.
