3. I have only one comment if this happens
Rodney ,   C.T. SA.   (04.30.13)
The Jews I love are becoming more and more stupid as time goes on.
4. Cut the BS
Cynthia Morris ,   London   (04.30.13)
Attila, you know very well that there are no "1967 borders". Israel has no recognized border to the East because the Arabs rejected ANY borders for Israel in 1949 when the Armistice Line was drawn in green ink. STOP LYING.
5. Translation: keep stolen land, shed native Arab population

6. Land swaps cleansed of Arabs, is high tech ethnic cleansing
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (04.30.13)
7. Livni Connection to Qatar
John Stovash ,   USA   (04.30.13)
Yes Livni wants this deal because of her connections with Qatar.
8. hard to believe this woman was once in Likud
zionist forever   (04.30.13)
She always wanted to be minister in charge of the peace process. She is against holding a referendum on the outcome of any agreements, says referendums are undemocratic which I love considering she was not even directly elected as an individual through a district. She is praising the Arab League because they have agreed to allow some minor land swaps when the idea of land swaps has been accepted by both Israel and the palestinians for the past 20 years The Arab League have come out said they will give permission for it and Livni is all praises because of it thinks its progress on the peace process. When the Arab League support no right of return then that will be progress but just giving permission for something agreed on 20 years ago is hardly a symbol of hope. Livni sounds more like she belongs in Meretz and its hard to believe Sharon who one of the toughest PMs we had in modern times personally made her a minister. I get a feeling she is trying to lay the ground work to be a serious challenge to Labor at the next election, she is the biggest champion of the peace process not Shelly and she will probably soon start rabbiting on about social justice same way Shelly does..
9. She Is A Moron
Brett ,   Florida   (04.30.13)
It was bad enough when she was just the crybaby opposition, and now great thinkers have given her a spotlight on the world stage again?
10. #2 not me
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (04.30.13)
11. Livni is a VERY bad joke !
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (04.30.13)
12. Livni jumps at any thing the arabs propose...,
Malone ,   Hfx   (04.30.13)
She does belong in Meretz,as someone mentioned..if she leans any more to the left,she'll fall over.
13. @5 Hey Steve, How can it be ethnic cleansing when
Gideon78 ,   Cpt South Africa   (04.30.13)
The population is rising? How can it be ethnic cleansing when only 1500 have died in the West Bank over the past decade? I do not see you saying ethnic cleansing when Assad butchers the Palestinians in Syria? Incidentally Assad has killed more Palestinians than Israel has in the West Bank over the past forgive me if I say you talk absolute BS you fool of note!
14. Land swaps
Get Real ,   UK   (04.30.13)
Ask to see the Arabs' pre- conditional maps first before getting too excited
15. #5, 6 not me

17. Give not one centimeter, ALL of Israel belongs to Jews.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (04.30.13)
18. Arab ConcSSionS
Free Egyptian ,   egypt   (04.30.13)
another arab concession to Israel . Israel strategy is as follows : create illegal facts on the ground and force your enemy to recognize them later by using military force and israel' s long diplomatic arm which is the US .
19. Livni is a dangerous disgrace & has no place in government.
Chaim ,   Israel   (04.30.13)
Likud soundly rejected Livni. Kadima soundly rejected Livni. Livni's pathetic new party has virtually no support. Livni's idiotic cease fire with Hizbullah denied Israel victory in Lebanon. Livni disgraced us at Annapolis. LIvni tried to divide Jerusalem. Livni is a dangerous disgrace and has no place in government.
20. #7- You are 100% correct
Mark ,   Boston   (04.30.13)
She clearly is in direct contact with Qatar. If other Arab countries want to establish relations with Israel, The peace process will proceed.
21. What is missing are two fundamental elements:
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (04.30.13)
1) Acceptance of Israel's RIGHT to be, to exist as the sovereign nation-state of the Jewish people; and, acceptance of any peace treaty as the end of the conflict and the end of all future demands. 2) Adherence to the fundamental elements of international law designed to resolve the Arab Israeli conflict, i.e. San Remo conference decisions, 1920; League of Nations decisions, 1922; UN Charter, Article 80, 1945; and, UN Security Council Resolution, 242, 1967. It is difficult to see why Israel should bow down to Mafia-like approach that demands: take it or leave it, and if you don't take it we shall see to it that you'll pay for it. P.S. A true "sea change" would have taken place if the Arab leaders stated now, without ifs, ands or buts; and, doing so in Arabic, Hebrew and English: We accept Israel's RIGHT to be, to exist as the SOVEREIGN NATION-STATE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE. Such a statement would cause us, Jews, to be much, much skeptical of those who, to this day, have refused to accept Israel's RIGHT on ANY parcel of land of the Jewish people's ancestral homeland. But, the lack of such acceptance, even once Israel bows down to their dictate and contrary to international law, tells the true story about this "sea change".
22. let them talk doesn't
arne ,   chicago usa   (04.30.13)
cost anything and what's the worst that can happen--bibi's not going to give the store away and who knows something positive "might" happen.I know, chances are slim to none, but it doesn't cost anything.
23. forget it Livni, Jordan and Gaza is enough for the swindlers
bernard ross   (04.30.13)
24. Israel survived the combined onslaught of it's
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (04.30.13)
Arab enemies in quite a few wars...and now the EVIL CLOWN Kerry dares to propose, to the people of Israel, to give up on their most outstanding bravery and success and to commit national SUICIDE...! GIVE ME A BREAK !
25. Tzippi Obama Livni?
ASTRONAUT ,   SC, USA   (04.30.13)
Ms. Tzippi are you by any chance a long lost cousin of B. Hussein Obama?
26. The Arab League can accept Israel's current borders
Jake ,   USA   (04.30.13)
The Arab league rules over 99% of the Middle East. They don't need another 0.5%. If they want peace with Israel, they can accept Israel's current borders.
27. #18
What's that you said? couldn't hear you over the cries of the native Egyptians (Copts) demanding justice from the occupiers of their land. Clean up the mess in your house before deflecting your crimes on us.
28. #20 Not what I meant
John Stovash ,   USA   (04.30.13)
I was suggesting she would benefit financially in my opinion which means she would put Israel at risk for her own greed.
29. #18, Arabs took the land by force, now you cry like babies..
Jake ,   USA   (04.30.13)
...because its been taken from you by force. How pathetic.
30. Basic Reality
Zechariah   (04.30.13)
Will a 1:1 land swap be enough both for Jews and needs to be a secure agreement that can last decades many Decades and still have the Galil is Arab Israel behind the 1949 armistance Lines. In the Negev are many Bedoin .also there is that the Arabs want right of return for the Arabs the Jews did not even get right of escape Fromm Genocide between 1933-1945 let alone from 1882.
