Livni rips Netanyahu in speech at opening of Knesset winter session

Livni rips Netanyahu in

Speaking after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Opposition leader Tzipi Livni lashed out at him in a biting speech, Monday afternoon. "I would like to congratulate Israel's prime minister for achieving this government's main goal: survival. Your second achievement - and unfortunately that's the way you see it - you succeeded in not doing anything at all," she said. Livni mockingly summed up Netanyahu's progress since being inaugurated: "We defeated America, we humiliated the Palestinians and we isolated ourselves." "When the prime minister thinks he wins, all of Israel loses," she said. She said Netanyahu should not misread the behavior of the Israeli public: "This is not contentment, but apathy, indifference and desperation."
