Israel's President Shimon Peres accused Iran of encouraging the Palestinians to continue rocket attacks on Israel rather than negotiating a ceasefire, saying "they are out of their mind."
At the same time, Peres praised Egypt's President Mohammed Morsi for the constructive role he has played in the intensifying crisis.
"The unpleasant one is the Iranians. They are trying again to encourage the Hamas to continue the shooting, the bombing, they trying to send them arms," Peres said in interview on CNN.
"They are out of their mind," he said.
The President said Israel had no choice but to wage its offensive against Hamas in Gaza despite the rising civilian casualties, citing what he said were 1,200 missiles fired from the territory in the past six days.
"In one minute, if they stop shooting, there won't be any casualties," he said.
In singling out Iran, Peres said, "We are not going to make a war with Iran. But we are trying to prevent the shipping of long range missiles which Iran is sending to Hamas."
"But Iran is a problem, world problem, not only from the point of view of building a nuclear danger, but also from the point of being a center of world terror.
"They finance, they train, they send arms, they urge, no responsibility,no moral consideration," Peres said.
Asked whether a ground war in Gaza was inevitable, Peres said he was hopeful that there would be a ceasefire.

The cover convinced me to forego the Patsy Cline link.
Washington DC has also been drinking the crazy juice.
Let’s strap Shimon on a 10-megatonner and drop it on Tehran. While Obama is there burying his nose in Ahmadihnejad’s butt.
He didn’t sign it. He had the secret talks (which were illegal at the time), and arranged for the no-confidence vote that got Likud out of power and Labor in. Rabin signed it, and was killed, probably by Perez with a right-wing nut for the fall guy.
BTW, my son, age 10, had a missile land in his school in Gush Etzion today. A few kids were hurt, him not among them. Spent ‘til all clear was sounded in a safe room. The war is now officially personal for me. He just came home and told me about it while I was writing the previous paragraph.
Please do not write specific coordinates in these posts. We feel for you and your family. I am near Rehovot. when do the gloves come off?
“They are out of their minds” is often just another way of saying “They have an entirely different value system and don’t care about the things that we care about”.
True enough, but too kind, IMO.
If Perez were more accurate in his choice of words, he would just say that they are depraved.
