"We cannot let the terror attack interfere with our fulfillment in the negotiations for peace," said the Head of the opposition MK Tzipi Livni (Kadima) about the Hamas shooting attack in Kiryat Arba which killed four Israelis Tuesday night.
Livni said that the attack testifies to the lack of humanity and the desire to derail peace talks, but the "Israeli interest is to reach an agreement." The attackers had a "cold, political motive: to prevent the peace process," explained Livni.
"I believe there is a chance for peace. There is no chance for peace with those who do not accept the existence of the state of Israel and who try to hurt Israel's citizens," Livni stressed.
"The national, Jewish and Israeli interest is to reach an agreement on two states for two nations. I am telling the prime minister from here, there is a public and political majority which wants an agreement."
