“Hatnuah” chair, Tzipi Livni called for an ideological alliance between her
party and the Labor party, to counteract the alliance formed by “Yesh Atid” and
Such an alliance, Livni said on Monday at the Knesset
caucus for the resolution of the Israeli-Arab conflict, could function even with
an opposition party, and she will inform PM Netanyahu that both parties will
support him throughout the peace and decision making processes.
highlighted the fact that Israel is facing a two-fold challenge over the next
six months: on the one hand, to guarantee that the international community will
not risk Israel via an agreement with Iran, and on the other hand, to realize a
permanent agreement with the Palestinians that will benefit Israel.
Labor party, headed by Isaac Herzog has made a choice not to ignore the
political issue, and the time is right to forge an alliance to support the
prime minister. We are still paying the price of the Lapid-Bennett alliance,
and it is a political one.”
Livni referred to the newly-brokered Iran
deal: “We must make it our business that Iran doesn’t become a threat that will
disrupt the balance in the Middle East.”
“The agreement made with Iran is
far from perfect, but it is a done deal. So now’s the time to rehabilitate and
consolidate our relations with the US.”
