Opposition leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima) warned against the weakening of ties between Jews in the Diaspora and their Israeli counterparts, in a meeting with US Senator Joe Lieberman on Wednesday.

Livni cited recent "radical legislation" in the Knesset, religious extremism causing discrimination against women, violence against IDF soldiers and "price tag" attacks carried out by right-wing activists as reasons for the tension. These events, she explained, "make it difficult for [Jews in the Diaspora] to defend Israel."

The government must work to stop "the wave" of worrisome events instead of encouraging it, she urged.
