Responding to comments made by Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni that attacks against soldiers were "more legitimate" than attacks on Israeli civilians, former foreign minister Moshe Arens said Tuesday that Livni's statements were senseless and prove that she still has a lot to learn. "What she said indicates a certain level of ignorance that is not appropriate for a foreign minister," Arens said. "All these people, whether they are trying to attack soldiers at a bus stop or civilians in a shopping mall are all members of terrorist organizations that attack where they see fit," he added. "It's wrong to differentiate members of the same terrorist organizations whether they kill a soldier or a child."
