CBC Radio's "Dispatches" Program Profiles Tzipi Livni

by Mike Fegelman

Tzipilivni Aptly labeled "Israel’s apparent heir," CBC Radio’s "Dispatches" program featured a very revealing profile of Israel’s Foreign Minister and possible future prime minister, Tzipi Livni.

According to the program’s teaser:

"The political landscape in Israel is about to change. The Prime Minister has resigned under a cloud, and next week his Kadima party will choose a new leader. The polls favor Tzipora Livni, perhaps the cleanest candidate in a sordid political landscape. But Tzipi, as she’s known, is also complicated. A child of the Jewish underground who now favours land for peace with the Palestinians. A vegetarian since age twelve. A spy at twenty-two. A lawyer and MP. But no military or leadership experience. Can she command a coalition government? Stare down Iran? Field strip an assault rifle? She recently took up playing drums. And now she wants to be prime minister. This is a woman who can pack a room as we hear from the CBC ‘s middle East correspondent, Margaret Evans."
