Tzipi Livni was Israel's foreign minister when Israel massacred Gaza two years ago, killing more people than Mubarak killed and more people than Gaddafi is said to have killed at this point-- though Mubarak's murders drew international media attention and outrage, and Gaddafi's murders have drawn our meditative president to the microphone. Remember that when children were dying in Gaza, Obama had nothing to say at all.
Because the Goldstone Report of '09 (read an excellent abridged version here; buy the book, please) found that Israel had likely committed war crimes in Gaza, and alleged war crimes by Hamas as well, and said those war crimes should be investigated under universal jurisdiction, Livni has cancelled some travel plans. But today she is in the Washington Post op-ed page. I haven't read it, can't bring myself to. Moon of Alabama has quaffed some of the poison for me:
In which Tzipi Livni explains that Israel isn't a democratic state:
"democracy to take root in the Arab world - not merely as a government system but as a values system that embraces nonviolence, coexistence, freedom, opportunity and equality"
