Danon: Livni will not able to lead Israel to a withdrawal

Ahead of the second round of renewed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks slated to take place in Jerusalem on Wednesday, Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon (Likud Beytenu) warned of limitations members of the ruling faction would make in light of a peace agreement.
Danon told Israel Radio that many in the Likud faction would not allow chief negotiation Justice Minister Tzipi Livni to lead Israel to an accord that would include a withdrawal of Jewish residents from territories beyond the Green Line.
In response to the release of 26 Palestinian security prisoners overnight Tuesday as an Israeli gesture for restarting direct negotiations, Danon said the release of Palestinian prisoners is a moral error.
