Now Tzipi Livni is so desperate she's willing to take Lieberman as a coalit
2009-02-05 13:03:00
Tzipi Livni is now trying a silly tactic to get more support: Kadima leader Tzipi Livni on Thursday said that she was not opposed to having Avigdor Leiberman's Israel Beiteinu party in her coalition - as long as he conforms to the government's platform. Speaking to Army Radio, Livni nevertheless said that "voting out of fear is problematic, be it out of fear of Arabs or any other group."
Ari Shavit's findings on Tzipi Livni
2009-02-04 17:26:00
Ari Shavit, a reporter for Haaretz, has some interesting discoveries about Tzipi Livni: Over the past week I took statements from about a dozen people who know Tzipi Livni quite well. None of them is close to either Benjamin Netanyahu or Ehud Barak. Most support Kadima or parties on the left. Nevertheless, all are concerned. The portrait they paint of Livni is a disturbing one. Kadima's

2008-04-14 06:04:00
DOHA, Qatar - Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni arrived here Sunday to attend the 8th annual Doha Forum on Democracy, Development and Free Trade, at which she has been invited to give a keynote speech. Senior Lebanese and Iranian officials responded by canceling their participation. “The Arab states cannot continue sitting on the fence when it comes to support and backing for the peace process,” Livni told Haaretz Sunday. The most prominent cancellation over Livni’s speech came from the Lebanese parliament speaker and leader of the Shia Amal movement, Nabih Beri. Beri was scheduled to address the forum as well, and to hold talks with senior Qatari government officials concerning the political crisis in Lebanon.

Mubarak: Livni has crossed the line with me

Mubarak: Livni has crossed the line with me - Israel News, Ynetnews Oh it is good to know that Mubarak still pisses off the Israelis and it is bad as usual to know that they do not respect or fear or him !! The worse thing the man goes to the public and starts speaking about how rude Livni was with him. If he is so angry and pissed off ,I have some couple suggestions which are much better than complaining like old ladies to the Israeli press : Cancel the Abehassera annual circus this year and make the people of that small village in Bahaira happy for once in their lives,already the annual carnival will start soon and hundreds of Israelis arrived today to the village followed by thousands with a terrible freaking security that paralysed the whole village , not to mention what the Israelis do every year from celebration from drinking alcohols in a way that provokes the people of the village Transfer the Israeli Ambassador from the Empress Fawiza Villa in Maadi to another Villa why...

Olmert tries to borrow more time, while at the same time turning on Livni
2007-05-11 16:14:00
He wants to appear before the Lebanon war commission again:JERUSALEM (AP) - Prime Minister Ehud Olmert wants to appear again before the Lebanon war commission, after testimony released by the body showed he blamed the army for shortcomings but acknowledged he ignored warnings that Israeli forces were unprepared for the conflict last summer.Olmert's office said late Thursday that he wants to counter a statement to the commission from his foreign minister and political rival, Tzipi Livni, that she recommended a diplomatic solution instead of a large-scale military operation the day after Hezbollah guerrillas captured two soldiers and killed three in a cross-border raid. Olmert said there was no such recommendation.Olmert's appearance before the panel failed to stave off its severe censure of his wartime performance. Last week's publication of the commission's first report triggered a wave of calls for his resignation.The war ended without Israeli forces fulfilling Olmert's two st...
To lead Israel, Livni Must win battle of sexes
2007-05-06 05:16:00
via"Tzipi Livni has made clear that she wants to be Israel's first female prime minister since Golda Meir but she faces deep misgivings inside the male-dominated militaristic society.Mrs Livni, a former spy, is popular among Israelis, having steered clear of recent corruption scandals and escaped rebuke for last summer's war.But if the married mother-of-two is to become premier, she must first overcome the old-boy network that dominates Israeli politics and convince her fellow Kadima Party MPs - and the Israeli public - that a woman is capable of leading the country at a time of crisis.Mrs Livni's critics use the sort of vocabulary that makes women's rights activist shudder: unripe, indecisive, unsure of herself and even "European", which for many Israelis is synonymous with spineless and effete."Israel is still a chauvinistic and militaristic society and it's very hard for Israelis to accept a woman prime minister, or women in very senior positions," said Zaha...
Tzipi Livni: NO GUTS, NO Glory
2007-05-03 18:32:00
Author:  Yid With LidTzipi Livni had an opportunity to show that she was a leader yesterday. She had the opportunity to reach out and grasp the golden ring of power, to lead a revolution. Everyone expected her to. But yesterday when she stepped up to microphone to make her move, she showed that her ability to lead is no better than that of the person she wants to replace.With the eyes of the country upon her she opened her mouth for a bold declaration and out came a little squeak. Yes she called for Olmert to quit, yes she indicated that she would like the party's leadership position in the future----and then NOTHING ! A real leader would have said that if he doesn't resign she would use every means possible to oust him. A real leader might have even said "I think the people should decide if Olmert continues" and call for new elections. A real leader would have found a way to keep the anti-Olmert momentum going. But yesterday Tzipi Livni showed that she is NOT a real le...
Tzipi Livni blows it
2007-05-02 18:49:00
Tzipi Livni, despite some possible claims, is not resigning from the cabinet over the Winograd committee's sharp indictment of Olmert, which actually does her positions more harm than good. In fact, there's some very surprising revelations in the following to boot:Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told reporters Wednesday evening she would not resign from her post, ending speculation she was on her way out of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's teetering coalition government and telling reporters that she supported Olmert's June 12th decision to go to war against Hizbullah."I think my own personal resignation would distort the [Winograd interim] report's intentions," Livni said.Doesn't make sense, I'm afraid, since, while she may not have been cited directly, the Winograd committee's findings did say that just about the whole government was to blame.However, Olmert associate Tal Zilberstein told Channel 10 that Livni would be fired, possibly due to Livni telling reporters following thei...
Olmert/Livni War Breaks Out

Author:  Yid With LidIn a battle that has been brewing for weeks Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is has reached the end of his rope, As reported in Ha'aretz Olmert and his closest associates are upset at Livni's behind the scenes back stabbing and her efforts to make Olmert to just GET THE HELL OUT !

Olmert-Livni tensions flare up over Winograd By Yossi Verter and Mazal Mualem, Haaretz CorrespondentThe battle between Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni following the release of the Winograd Committee's interim report is reaching a boiling point: Olmert is expected to warn Livni at a meeting between the two on Wedensday that she cannot continue to undermine him and still hold her position as deputy premier. The prime minister and his aides were highly critical Tuesday night of what they said was Livni's open and active role in efforts within Kadima to remove Olmert. "Tz...

Livni calls for normalization first, peace late
2007-03-13 07:22:00
Israel urged Arab states on Monday to normalize ties now, saying this could hasten the end of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and cautiously welcomed a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace proposal. The comments by Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi came amid reports of "secret talks" between Israel and the Palestinians on reviving the peace process."Do not wait for peace to come before you normalize relations with us. Normalize relations now and peace will come," she told Arab countries in a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a powerful pro-Israel lobbying group. You have the power to change reality and to encourage the Palestinians to embrace coexistence," she added.Arabs should establish diplomatic relationship with Israel. How would they solve their problem , if they do not talk ?
Livni hints at consequences if EU drops three principles
2007-03-12 12:00:00
Israel is hinting at stopping talks with Palestinian moderates over a "political horizon" if the European Union drops its insistence that the Palestinian Authority government recognize Israel, renounce terrorism and accept previous agreements, The Jerusalem Post has learned.Her comments came as certain EU countries - Italy, France, Spain and Finland - are pressing for the EU to be more flexible in demanding that all contact with the PA government be cut off until it accepts the Quartet's three conditions.Senior government officials said Livni was not threatening the EU foreign ministers, but rather explaining what the consequences of their recognition of Hamas might be without that organization's acceptance of the three conditions.Israel must realize that EU will not support its Middle East polices now. EU countries do a lot of business with Arab countries. They know if they keep on supporting Israel. It will hurt their business interests in the Arab and Muslim world.
Tzipi Livni would only worsen Israel's situation
2007-01-11 22:09:01
Evelyn Gordon talks about why Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni, if she were to take over as premier, would only make things worse:According to the polls, Tzipi Livni might well be Israel's next prime minister. Public disgust with the government in which she serves as foreign minister has somehow bypassed her; with an approval rating of over 50 percent, she is Israel's most popular politician.Yet this popularity is mystifying - because Livni's record gives every reason to believe that she would be as dismal a premier as her current boss.As The Jerusalem Post correctly noted in a recent editorial, the very fact that she is conducting an independent foreign policy, diametrically opposed to that of the government in which she serves, is problematic: Israel cannot effectively make its case to the world when senior ministers publicly espouse contradictory positions. But the content of her policies, as outlined in recent speeches and interviews, is even more problematic.On Syria, fo...
