Jewish Mothers Have Rights

Shimon Peres

I’m not a fan of Shimon Peres – I have to be honest. If I look back over his career as a politician…well, I’d rather not.

By contrast, as a president, he’s been…well, not outstanding…and he’s said a lot of dumb things, like thanking the Russians for 1,000 years of hospitality to the Jewish people (to which Natan Sharansky properly responded that this was absurd … pogroms, laws outlawing Jews, refusing for decades to allow Jews freedom of practice, freedom of movement, etc.). It was, overall, a really dumb comment.

But Peres has his moments. He is very supportive of women. I heard him speak a few months ago. He spoke of men as babies and says women run the world, ground it, nurture it.

He is against the bombardment of Israel by Gaza rockets (who isn’t)…but his explanation, just one, of why this is so horrible, is sweet. Jewish mothers have the right to sleep at night, he says. He’s right, of course. I may not like his politics, but in this, he is so correct.

  1. Shimon Peres is a murderer. He is one of the causes of all of the terrorism we are encountering today. He is one of the Oslo criminals who still believes there could be "peace" with the enemy. He is the one who made millions of dollars in blackmail money in order to endanger the lives of others. There is nothing to praise Shimon Peres for. He must be made a mockery of and put behind bars where he belongs.

  2. Tania Szapiro says:

    Millions of dollars in blackmail money? You can't just throw that kind of accusation withot an explanation.
