Ketzaleh on Livni
At the end of a long article about Prime Minister Netanyahu's domestic political troubles, Haaretz's Yossi Verter comes up with this comparison
between Prime Minister Netanyahu and opposition leader Livni from Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh). Ketzaleh is the leader of the National Union party, the only Right wing party that is not part of the coalition.
Katz believes that, should it come to elections, Netanyahu will pull an about-face on pledges he made in his Bar-Ilan speech last year.
"Netanyahu will say he made a mistake when he declared his support for two states for two peoples. After all, he won't be able run on the same platform as Livni," he said. "Afterward he will be reelected and pursue the same line again."
Katz defended Livni, who he was seen huddling with in the Knesset.
"She is a friend of mine," he said. "I have a very high regard for her integrity. I prefer one like her, who follows a crooked path in a straight way, than someone who follows a crooked path in a crooked way."
