CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Members of the opposition Likud party rejected Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni's call for a unity government as disingenuous.
"Livni's call on Likud to join an emergency government was a desperate attempt to portray [opposition leader and Likud chairman Binyamin] Netanyahu as someone who only cares about his own interests," a colleague said. "This attempt is pathetic."
Instead of a unity government, he said, Livni should "allow Israel's citizens to decide who should lead them and in what way" because her narrow win in the Kadima party primaries do not qualify her to lead the country.
"Livni was never an alternative and will never be one," he said.
"She is a party to the Second Lebanon War failure [in the summer of 2006]. All the responsible parties went home and only she stayed, as if she were not part of the failed decision-making process," he said.
"Right now we need elections," he said.
