Foreign Minister Tsipi Livni is one of the very few pleasant surprises that the Kadimah party brought us. I knew that she comes from a highly respected Revisionist family, and that her parents were Irgun veterans. I did not know that in 1948 they "became the first couple to marry in the new Jewish state". With much interest I read the article about Mrs Livni's mother Sarah, who died this week at the age of 85. The following sentence from the eulogy made me smile: "She also fought old age. At the age of 80, she traveled to Eilat and returned with pierced ears, as if she were a girl of 16." May Sarah Livni's memory be a blessing.
