The real Middle East conflict is not between Jews and Arabs, but between moderates and extremists, opposition leader Tzipi Livni said Friday. Speaking at a conference in Morocco of African and Middle East leaders, Livni said the fact that there had been periods in which Jews and Muslims had lived in Morocco and Israel in harmony proved that the conflict was not really about religion. She said extremists exploited religion in order to commit acts that were against religion itself. Livni stated there could be peace between Israel and the Arab world, asserting that most Israeli citizens wanted peace. The two-state solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is in Israel's best interests, the opposition leader said.
