Tzipi Livni, co-leader of the mis-named Zionist Union coalition of Labor and her former hapless faction, blames Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for the “bad deal” between Iran and the United States and the other P5+1 powers.
She railed against Prime Minister Netanyahu on Army Radio Tuesday morning, calling him “ineffective” and at fault for fighting President Barack Obama tooth and nail against the deal with Iran instead of placating the president, which she claims would have led the United States to reach a deal that would have given Israel a “significant security package”
Livni’s history of hate for Netanyahu has no limits, and she sounds too much like Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who has a standard answer for anything that goes wrong: the “occupation.”
If a Palestinian Authority terrorist attacks Israel, it is because of the “occupation.”
If someone in Ramallah dies of a heart attack, it is because of “the occupation.”
Similarly, if an Israeli company lays off employees, Livni somehow finds that it is because of Netanyahu.
And if President Obama makes a rotten deal with Iran, it is obviously because Prime Minister Netanyahu did not tell President Obama, “Look, let’s work together to give Iran what it wants instead of your having to take the blame all alone.”
Israel has one chance left to stop the Iran deal from being signed, and that is to convince Democratic Congressmen to vote against it. The Opposition parties, headed by Labor party chairman Yitzchak Herzog and Livni, have to join Netanyahu and show Congressmen that everyone is together,
Livni already has poked holes in the wall of opposition.
