Opposition Leader Tzipi Livni addressed the allegations against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for the first time on Tuesday, saying, “Particularly when we face [security threats], we cannot allow ourselves a situation in which the public stops believing in politicians.”

She was speaking at a conference entitled “The Israeli economy under the shadow of security threats,” which was hosted by Tel Aviv University’s Yuval Ne’eman Workshop for Science, Technology and Security, headed by Professor Yitzhak Ben-Israel.Livni stressed in her speech that politicians “are those who will determine the future of our children and our grandchildren.”

“The expression that ‘everybody is corrupt’ is incorrect and the time has come for the public to judge its elected representatives,” she said. “This is part of the rehabilitation process that we need to go through, most of all for ourselves.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu and other government ministers are being investigated for accepting flights and accommodation from wealthy donors.
