Kadima leader Tzipi Livni is concerned that the campaign to delegitimize the State of Israel will harm its ability to defend itself in the future, Livni said in a conference call to leaders of the Jewish Federations of North America.

In an off the record briefing, whose contents were leaked by Livni's aides, she said that Israel's problem was with its policies, not with its public relations, and the way to fix its image is to adopt policies expediting the peace process.

"We see ourselves as David, surrounded by hostile nations, but the world sees us as Goliaths," she said. "The world understands Israel less and less." Livni said that while Israel's legitimacy was waning, Hamas was gaining legitimacy. She called upon Turkey to choose sides between Iran and the West.
