Livni: Every MK must recognize that Israel is the Jewish homeland

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni criticized MK Ahmed Tibi (UAL) on Sunday for his statements encouraging the Palestinians not to agree to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Livni said that the establishment of a Palestinian state would be a solution for all Palestinians, whether in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, or in Israel. The Palestinians can't make both arguments, Livni said. It must be clear that Israel was founded as the Jewish homeland, and every elected MK has to recognize that, the foreign minister added.
