Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is not willing to seriously negotiate peace with the Palestinians, said opposition leader MK Tzipi Livni at the closing session of the World Jewish Congress’s annul Board of Governors gathering on Tuesday.
In an impassioned address to the 250 delegates of the global Jewish advocacy group, the Kadima party leader lashed out against the prime minister saying he had repeatedly rejected offers to form a coalition with her party and push forward peace talks.
“I offered Netanyahu different coalitions,” she said in emotional response to a question from the audience. “He doesn’t want them. This is the coalition of his choice, his natural partners. It’s easy to say there is no [Palestinian] partner to talk to.”
