What Livni hasn't touched upon is the fact that we cannot win that battle unless we face up to reality. There's this reality: The attachment of one concept, i.e. Jewish-Zionist to the concept of Democratic needs to be explained. How does that work in reality, Ms. Livni? And this reality: the contortions of Bibi Netanyahu have awarded the reins of this country to the most extreme elements in his coalition, not in the Knesset - that would be the least of the problems - but in the field. The battlefield is in the hands of the troops of Baruch Marzel and Itamar Ben-Gvir. The price tag challenges his leadership and he gives it the nod and the wink. What battle can possibly ever be won with such foot-soldiers? If they win, Israel loses. Ms. Livni, these are just two examples out of many. Stop mincing words and be the opposition you promised to be. This is the first time we've seen you since the election and it's been a long year since, with much filthy water already under the bridge.
