Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Wednesday slammed the government, saying Israel was "starting a war with its biggest friends in Europe."




She said the government was harming Israel's security in response to a Foreign Ministry statement rejecting European criticism of settlement activity.


 


"Without legitimacy from the world, we will not be able to act against terrorism like we have in the past," she said, adding that the world does not trust Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and that this is impacting on how Israel's friends view the country itself.
