Tzipi Livni: Israeli Foreign Minister A.D.

25. October 2022 – Katharina Schlangenotto

In 2008, the Süddeutsche Zeitung titled Tzipi Livni as “the determined clean woman.” That was when the incumbent deputy prime minister and foreign minister of Israel had won the elections for the presidency of the ruling Kadima party with 43.1 percent.

The Haaretz newspaper wrote of her in September 2008, “Tzipi Livni is a stubborn girl.” The journalists who have met her in recent years, accompanied her on her way to the top while she was still a junior minister, and listened to her speeches and statements have always heard from her, to the point of fatigue, the same message: ‘I am here because of the supreme goal, which is the Jewish and democratic state.’ Therefore, I support the establishment of a Palestinian state, on the condition that it will be the national solution for all Palestinians, just as Israel is the national solution for all Jews.” In smaller forums, Livni repeats the exact same words, adding, “But this remains between us, yes?”

Wikipedia notes that Tzipi Livni was the first cabinet member “to differentiate attacks by Palestinian militants on Israeli soldiers from terrorist attacks on civilians. In an interview for American television on March 28, 2006, on the program Nightline, she said, “Someone who fights Israeli soldiers is an enemy, and we will fight back, but I don’t think that falls under the definition of terrorism if the target is a soldier.”

What happened in the last 10 years of the politician’s advocacy for Tzipi Livnis country, Israel?

In a 2018 article in “,” she said that “the past years have been hard.” And further, “Peace has become a dirty word, democracy is under attack,” Livni criticized. It has become a curse to hold a political position different from that of the government, she said. She warned of an end to democracy in Israel if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is allowed to continue his policies.”

Tzipi Livni was named one of the “150 Women Who Shake the World” by Newsweek and The Daily Beast. She was named to the “Time 100” and the “100 Most Powerful Women” by Forbes and is now a sought-after speaker, from the World Economic Forum to Fortune’s “Most Powerful Women” summit.

Three years ago, Tzipi Livni retired from Israeli politics. She subsequently taught diplomacy at the Harvard Kennedy School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Likewise, she has positioned and established herself as a sought-after keynote speaker and can now be booked through Premium Speakers for conferences, corporate events and more.

As a top speaker today, she will speak about the geo-political future of the US versus China as well as Russia versus Europe. As well as about Israel as a startup nation, the Globalization and especially about the combination of globalization and nation state, the principles for democracies – values and challenges, the future of change and the young generation versus the old generation or the global economy in the context of corporate competition and supply chain issues.
