For those who are home, and for those who are on the way. For those who support the historic and just return of the land of Israel to its people, forever loyal to their inheritance, and its restoration.
Hats off to David Horovitz for this tremendous interview.
It is hard to know if Ms. Livni realizes what she said here.
But here it is:
#1. She says she was responsible for the talks with the Palestinians and that they never reached the point that Jerusalem was discussed.
#2. On the other hand, she recognizes that while she was talking with the Palestinians as FM, that PM Olmert not only discussed Jerusalem - he made a tremendously generous offer to Mahmoud Abbas.
#3. She recognizes that Mahmoud Abbas rejected Olmert's very generous offer.
But Kadima head Livni refuses to do the math.
#4. Livni adamantly insists that it doesn't matter that Abbas rejected Olmert's very generous offer.
Why? Because Livni was in charge of the official negotiations and she didn't make the offer. The prime minister of Israel made the offer.
Question: Does Ms. Livni think we are idiots? Or is her ego so huge that she genuinely thinks that the only thing that matters is what took place between her and the Palestinians in the formal window dressing talks?
I visited Hevron in November 2000 after the outbreak of the Rosh Hashanah War to see what could be done to assist in the face of the growing daily attacks on the community. After returning to work for the community in the summer of 2001, a bond and a love was forged that grows to this day. My wife Melody and I merited to be married at Ma'arat HaMachpela and now host visitors from throughout the world every Shabbat as well as during the week. Our goal, "Time to come Home!"
