Opposition leader Tzipi Livni said US President Barack Obama's peace plan laid out in his Thursday Middle East speech was clearly in Israel's interests, while the diplomatic stalemate that she believes was brought on by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is not.
"On his visit, Netanyahu must display the leadership necessary now to create the conditions necessary to restart negotiations with those who are ready to end the conflict," Livni said. "Only a real Israeli initiative with content that can receive American and international support can be an answer to the current dangers and opportunities."
