    Do you really want to go inside?” a friend asked me at the entrance to the main hall of the Herzliya Conference, a global policy conference. “You know,” he said, “it’s Tzipi Livni speaking” — implying that there’s no point in wasting one’s time on her.

    Four years ago, Livni was a...

    January 22, 2013 | 4:39 pm

    These were the most interesting-boring elections one could ever hope for. Boring – as the top job was secured early on by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Fascinating – as the parties, unburdened of having to compete for the top job, were free to combat one another for votes....

    By Gidi Grinstein

    January 16, 2013 | 11:31 am

    By Shmuel Rosner

    December 17, 2012 | 8:18 am

    No one ever accused former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni of any hint of corruption. She is a woman with as untainted a record for a politician as one can have. Nonetheless, you’d have to really stretch those muscles of ethical behavior to keep calling Livni a principled...
