Hatnua (The Tzipi Livni Party) head Tzipi Livni told The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference on Wednesday that she rejects claims that settlements are tied to security.

"Israelis have to change how they view settlements, like I did," Livni said. "They don't provide security. We need to put security needs first."

Livni's comments at the conference sparked a minor twitter war with Yisrael Beytenu, which immediately tweeted that "Tzipi Livni says no connection between settlements and security, standing in opposition to decades of even Left wing thinking," adding the hash-tag "#offthemap." Yisrael Beytenu party head Avigdor Liberman spoke just before Livni at the Post conference.
