"Former foreign minister Tzipi Livni quit parliament on Tuesday, a few weeks after her removal as head of Israel's main opposition party, and accused Israeli leaders of neglecting peace efforts with Palestinians. ... Defeated in a Kadima leadership election in March by former defense chief Shaul Mofaz, Livni saved her parting shots for members of Netanyahu's government, accusing them of 'burying their heads in the sand, dealing with maneuvering and spin, while the threat to Israel only rises.'"
