“Israeli” Livni: Netanyahu over-Dramatized Lebanon Border Op
“Israeli” opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Wednesday accused the apartheid entity’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of over-dramatizing the army's discovery of Hezbollah tunnels for political gain.
Livni told “Israel's” public broadcasters that while she applauded the so-called “discovery of the tunnels and their demolition”, “the incident must be kept in proportion.”
“We are talking about engineering activity within “Israel”,” she added, accusing Netanyahu of "blowing the incident out of proportion.”
Livni stated that part of Netanyahu's thinking was to deflect criticism from southern “Israel”, accusing him of failing to quash the threat of from the besieged the Gaza Strip.
"Therefore he made a ‘defensive’ engineering event into a dramatic military operation," she said.
"This was done from two reasons -- either the prime minister is himself panicking or he wants to sow panic to justify his actions both in delaying elections and abandoning the ‘residents’ of southern “Israel”.”
