Israel opposition scoffs at peace policy

March 6, 2011 at 11:05 AM   |   Comments

JERUSALEM, March 6 (UPI) -- Israel's opposition leader Sunday called for a new peace initiative with the Palestinians.

Tzipi Livni said in a speech that the current strategy employed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was going nowhere and was becoming too focused on impressing the United States.

"Israel's standing in the world will not be determined by speaking fluent English at the (U.S.) Congress or on CNN," said Livni.

Haaretz said Livni spoke after Netanyahu raised the idea of a Palestinian state with temporary borders that would be part of an interim peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority. That proposal was rejected by the PA leadership.

Livni said the rejection proved the Netanyahu government was displaying "a complete lack of leadership."
