Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Sunday commented on Egypt's opening Saturday of the Rafah crossing, saying, "We should be concerned when we see Israel's situation deteriorating, not only in theoretical terms, but also in the opening of the Rafah crossing."

"I support holding arguments, preferably within a room, over issues important to Israel. But there are no changes to [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu's words, the only change is in the tune."

"What we saw [after Washington] was that US President [Barack Obama] continued from his meeting with Netanyahu to Western countries, where he also asked for his position to be adopted, a position only opposed by one state."

Livni was referring to Netanyahu's opposition to Obama's call for negotiations with the Palestinians to based along 1967 lines.
