Livni: 'One nation for two people' is a strategic threat against Israel

The concept of one nation for Israelis and Palestinians, and not the acceptance of a two-state solution is a strategic threat against the existence of the Jewish state, Opposition chairwoman Tzipi Livni said on Thursday. "The idea that there will be here one state for two peoples and not a state of Israel that is a Jewish and democratic state is a strategic threat, no less [important] than any other threat," she said during a speech at the Fisher Institute. "Time is not on the side of those who want to keep Israel a Jewish state, time is not on the side of the moderates in the region, and therefore we must not drag our feet and delay the inevitable with pointless negotiations."
