Livni: Israel is not religious state

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said at the UJC conference in Jerusalem that "Israel is not the monopoly of rabbis. Israel is a Jewish state, but is not a religious state but a nation-state."

 

Livni added, "We must not forget that Israel's ultimate goal is that Israel be a Jewish, democratic state that lives in complete security."(Ronen Medzini)
