Livni: There is a huge gap between criticizing a policy or having a debate or asking Israel questions and boycotting and putting sanctions against Israel, which is basically a collective punishment.

David: Did you agree with the sanctions, the equivalent BDS movement against apartheid South Africa?

Livni: If I may, we have sanctions on Iran and I am here to say they should be kept and to remove it at once.

David: What about the South African ones?

Livni: Yes, I did that, but there is a difference because there is no apartheid in Israel.
