From the Russian Tea Room, with no love

Tzipi Livni, the current opposition leader in the Israeli Knesset, spoke yesterday in Manhattan, and was greeted with protests from New York activists.  She gave a Hudson Union Society-sponsored speech at the Russian Tea Room.

During the 2008-09 Gaza massacres, in which then-Foreign Minister Livni presided over an operation that killed some 1,400 Palestinians, the majority of them civilians, Livni infamously said that there was “no humanitarian crisis” in Gaza.

In December 2009, a British court issued an arrest warrant for Livni, accusing her of committing war crimes during the invasion of Gaza, where over 300 children were killed by Israeli forces.

The blog Desert Peace has more photos from the anti-Livni action.
