Speeaking at the 19th annual Rabin memorial rally Saturday night, former president Shimon Peres issued scathing criticism of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus handling of the peace process with the Palestinians and of his governments approach to the conflict.
There are those who have turned the word peace into a derogatory term, and there are those who consider peace supporters as delusional people, declared Peres. I say clearly today: Those who have given up on peace are the delusional ones. Those who gave up and stopped looking for peace. theyre the naive ones, the ones who are not patriots, Peres added at the Tel Aviv event, held in the square where prime minister Yitzhak Rabin was gunned down on November 4, 1995.
We have all sorts of so-called smart people who talk about managing the conflict instead of peace. Take a look at what happened in Gaza over the summer and what is happening in Jerusalem as of late. That is what managing the conflict looks like, the former president charged, speaking to a crowd of thousands.
Where is the Israeli peace initiative? he asked, adding that it was better to have an imperfect peace than a raging conflict. The peace accords with Jordan and Egypt taught us that its better to have a cold peace than a hot war.

Peres is Israel’s Jimmy Carter. Instead of eventually gaining any wisdom with age, they’ve doubled down in support of the dark side.
They should do commercials together for Habitat for Hamas.
Shimon Peres is delusional.
The absence of peace in the Middle East has nothing to do with Israel.
Take about a guy stuck on stupid...
Perhaps Mr. Perez can enlighten me and list one thing the Arabs on the West Bank and in Gaze have given up in the interest of peace. Just one...
There will only be peace when the paleosimians have their breathing rights revoked!
On the contrary, there are those like Peres who have turned the word "peace" into capitulation. Peace can only come through strength and victory over enemies who are not willing to stop attacking.
“...Habitat for Hamas” alliterative and funny!
>>They should do commercials together for Habitat for Hamas.<<
How many muslims REALLY will participate in making their own rocket launchers...?
Peres is senile. After a career highlighted by a great deal of dementia
send him to a nice comfortable care home, preferably south of Beersheba
It’s too bad he didn’t catch a bullet right there.

One cannot negotiate with Nazis.
That snake, Peres, needs to be behind bars.
Heh. Yeah why put sweat equity into their own bomb and suicide vest factories er homes, when the perps and their hovels will blow up together in the inevitable work accidents anyway.
I said on FR years ago that I had given up on the dumb Israelis because they persist in believing that they can talk themselves into a peaceful accommodation with Muslims.
Perez is an example of this. (As is George Bush , Tony Blair and more recently Pope Francis, just to name a few more dumb Infidels.) -Tom
The Palestinians do not want peace
