Why Does Britain Keep Harassing Tzipi Livni? – The recent attempt to investigate the Israeli politician for war crimes is yet another sign of Europe’s moral Implosion | Tablet Magazine
Europe is to Tzipi Livni what an ostentatious mansion is to a certain kind of rapper: a natural habitat, a status symbol, a promise of redemption.

No slouches at judging character, the Mossad’s spymasters realized that Livni was precisely the sort of anodyne presence Europeans imagine as the platonic ideal of an Israeli: well-mannered, well-meaning, and inoffensive, promising in every gesture and every word the imminent emergence of a new Denmark on the shores of the Mediterranean.
