Former prime minister Ehud Olmert lashed out at his foreign minister, Tzipi Livni, Tuesday, warning Israelis not to vote for her Tzipi Livni Party.

Speaking at an event for Kadima mayors in Ramat Gan, Olmert sung the praises of current Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz and mocked the Tzipi Livni Party's slogan.
"I hear that the hope will vanquish the fear," Olmert said.

"That is indeed a nice slogan and I am not against slogans. But what is the practical content behind it? If there is anyone who has already proven that he knows how to defeat fear in the streets and provide security and hope to the citizens of Israel, it is the man who as IDF chief of staff commanded Operation Defensive Shield and defeated the second Intifada."
