Dozens of right wing youths thwarted Tzipi Livni's pre-election march through the Mahaneh Yehuda marketplace in Jerusalem on Monday. Police warded off the activists, while Livni's security team was forced to bundle her down a side alley to escape the area. Livni was greeted with chants of, "Kadima is the left!" and "Kadima is Hamas!" as she tried to make her way through the market. Right wing extremists had previously threatened to prevent her visit and held up signs which read, "Jerusalem is voting right" and calling Kadima corrupt. A handful of youth wearing Kadima t-shirts tried unsuccessfully to create an atmosphere of support.
