Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Monday addressed the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference, saying the only way to maintain Israel as the national home of the Jewish people was to take the lead in enacting a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Livni said that such a move was in Israel's interest and was not to be done as a favor to anyone else, including the US president, nor was the peace process nearly to be used as a talking point to increase Israel's standing in the world.

The opposition leader stated that Israel must take the lead in the diplomatic process or the country risks having decisions made about its future against its will.
