Opposition leader Tzipi Livni said at the opening of the Zionist Union meeting that government ministers were making small politics of primaries and elections instead of dealing with security issues. "While Israel faces tremendous security challenges in Gaza, the northern border and the West Bank," said Livni, "government ministers are making small politics of primaries and election."They do not know how to promote security, so they take advantage of the opportunity to advance their political agendas," Livni claimed. "Netanyahu surrendered to Hamas," Livni added," and Bennett [surrendered] to the extremist elements in his party.""No one will teach us security," she said. "Security is given according to the rule: whoever shares security cooperation with us will be better off, and whoever harms us, we will persecute him."
