CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - In a letter to 70,000 members of the Kadima party, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni promised to strike a deal with the Palestinian Authority if she is elected party chairman.
Livni has been criticized for negotiating Israel's future behind closed doors, without revealing any substantive information to the nation's citizens.
"I promise to act with responsibility and good judgment to reach a permanent agreement via dialogue with the pragmatic Palestinians, while struggling determinedly against the Palestinian extremists in order to allow the State of Israel to continue to be Jewish and democratic with a Jewish majority living securely within final borders," Livni wrote.
Her letter included a new political slogan: "Only with Tzipi Livni can Kadima win."
According to some pollsters, Livni is leading the race against Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz and Public Security Minister Avi Dichter.
On Tuesday, Dichter campaigned among Israeli Arabs and Druze, joining in their Ramadan celebrations.
Livni has also sought support from the Arab sector, recently granting an interview to the Saudi-based al-Araiya television network.
