Zionist Union leaders Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni will be able to protect Israel – on both the Iranian and Palestinian fronts – better than Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Livni said in an interview with The Jerusalem Post in Tel Aviv on Thursday.
Livni said Netanyahu tries to present an image as a strong leader who can face challenges, but that he is really weak and his decisions are connected to his political survival.
His insistence on speaking to Congress in Washington proved that he was willing to pay an enormous price that harmed Israel to help himself politically, she said.
“I believe we know how to work better with the international community to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon,” Livni said. “The way to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon is to speak intimately with the US. This is something we can do, and Netanyahu can’t. On security, on peace talks, meeting the challenge of Iran, we can handle it better.”
