Opposition leader Tzipi Livni said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu allowed diplomatic conditions the preceding Kadima government accomplished to deteriorate during his term as prime minister, speaking at the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday.

"We left you a supportive world, excellent relations with the US, a world that opposed the [Palestinian] right of return, leaving the [settlement blocks] in Israeli hands, Hamas was weak and the world was delegitimizing it," she said.

Today, she said to the prime minister, "you eroded all of that. You eroded the American commitment to Israel, Hamas has grown stronger and is receiving legitimacy."
