A Profoundly Different Livni
Commentary Magazine ^ | February 23, 2009 | Shmuel Rosner

Coalition talks in Israel seem to be headed in what most Israeli voters consider the wrong direction — that is, the negotiation of a right-wing Netanyahu government with no Kadima and no Labor.

This is troubling to many Israelis, whose primary concern is accountable leadership. Political columnist Sima Kadmon explained in his plea to Livni last week:

So the story here is that even though most Israelis voted for the more conservative parties, still the idea that these parties would then form a government is thought by “most Israelis” to be “headed in the wrong direction”?

Of course. This is how the left always views things. When they win, the right needs to fall in line. When the right wins, they must “reach out” to the left.

A couple of months or so back Livni could not put together her own group with others in order to move ahead. It might be she is refusing to cooperate with others for the same reason ... they want it ‘their way’.

Livni did not like the result of the election, so she has decided to ignore it.

People on the left are, intellectually, essentially spoiled children.

Reminds me of the Dhims who demanded (and got) bipartisanship when the Republicans had the Presidency, House, and Senate.

Witness how the Dhims behave in that situation.

Tzippi Livni is a vegetarian which means she can’t be aggressive enough with the Muslim Jihad. Vegetarianism is fine but not for warriors.

Netaniaou should NOT try to find an agreement with LIVNI(she is an opportunist libtard knee-jerk)but maybe with some former KADIMA members or independants and let Kadima collapse...

Livni,like Olmert,want to grab the power! That’s all !
She would appear like an opportunist empty suit who is not really committed on working for ISRAEL but herself....

Everyone of the party's wants concession for them to join with the Kadima.

Politics. A new path than what they have chosen during the last years is a must for Israel. They live under a siege of rockets. A scary way to live. Many are blinded by the possibility that peace can be made; despite the truth in their face that peace is not a consideration to HAMAS.

If we had children and lived there, our view would be different. It is an impossible situation in many ways.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” “Those that bless Israel will be blessed. Those that curse Israel will be cursed”.”
