Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Wednesday delivered a speech laced with barbed criticism both of the Netanyahu government's conduct in peace negotiations and with the reaction of many in Israel and among media commentators that the Democrats loss of control of Congress was good for Israel.

"To those of you who believe that the loss of Obama is good for Netanyahu, have you gone crazy?" Livni rhetorically asked in reference to the results of the previous day's midterm elections in the US.

"He who says that a weak US or a weak American president is good for Israel is not just speaking stupidly, they are encouraging something that endangers Israel itself."
