Zionist Union MK Tzipi Livni called for a national referendum Saturday afternoon, to determine the progression of the Arab-Israeli conflict, a “problem” looming over the State of Israel for “nearly fifty years.”
“We need to know in which direction we’re going – two countries or one,” Livni said. “Without solving this problem, Israel will not be able to redeem itself as a Jewish and democratic nation.”
Livni, speaking at an event in Rishon Lezion, said that the settler minority has taken control over the majority in Israel, influencing the behavior of leaders and shaping government policies and decisions. “They must be stopped,” she said.
