Israel: Livni tells Arab Israelis' to look somewhere else

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni says her country's Arab citizens will only be able to fulfill their national aspirations outside of Israel.

Livni said yesterday that for Israel to remain a Jewish and democratic state, it must be one of two distinct national entities. She says Israeli Arabs must find their national solution "elsewhere."

Israeli Arab lawmaker Ahmed Tibi said Livni must clarify if she intends to strip one million Israeli Arabs of political rights and transfer them to a future Palestinian state. Livni is vying for the post of prime minister in February elections as head of the centrist ruling Kadima Party.
