Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni in Sunday's cabinet meeting urged any ministers who had plans for stopping Kassam rocket attacks against Israel to present them to the government. "We can't create the mistaken impression that the government is refusing to authorize plans of action," Livni said in response to a number of other ministers who intimated that Israel has not taken sufficient action to prevent Kassam fire. Livni proposed that Israel present its own diplomatic initiative in conjunction with the Palestinians, rather than waiting for initiatives from foreign sources, Israel Radio reported. In addition, Livni called the UN resolution condemning Israel for the deaths of 18 Palestinian civilians in Beit Hanun harmful and incorrect, adding that "for harming civilians, there is a political price, as well."
