Precedent-setting ruling bypasses the adoption law requirement that the adoptive parent and the child must be of the same faith.02:11 26.11.15 | 0 comments
That Livni is beginning to blame others for her failures is a sign of progress; at least she is recognizing them. Livni could have taken over from Olmert in October 2009, to serve as PM for 2 years. Instead, she called for new elections. The Left block had 70 seats then, and polls suggested it would shrink to a minority. Now they have only 55. Somehow, Livni thought she did the "right thing". She thought if she got more seats than Likud, she will become PM. Such an error is not becoming anybody, not even a beginner like Livni. Livni attacked Shas, and is still attacking them. The fact is that Rabbi Ovadia is a MODERATE on settlements and borders. And he is enormously respected by Sephardis, even right-wing ones. Shas SHOULD be in a coalition that makes peace, because they could sell it to many rightwingers. Livni should set some priorities: first peace, then culture wars. But she is too inept politically, to say nothing of the fact that her party voters are mostly Sephardim who are typically traditionalist and may even like Shasniks. Instead of opening her mouth, Livni should open her ears, and then work out a social agenda for her party. She is not her party, only the ugly face of it.
