Dear Mr. Prime Minister,

My heartfelt sympathies to you and the Belgian people for the acts of protest carried out in Brussels this week. This really is a wake-up call for us all.

You and I must really speak about how to deal with the atrocities and protests, including the attacks on Brussels, by these misunderstood activists.

Mister Prime Minister, I have a great deal of experience in dealing successfully with terrorism and this is why I wish to come to your assistance.

The first thing you must realize is that one can only make peace with one’s enemies. With one’s friends there is no need to make peace. There is no military solution to the problems of terrorism, and this is why you must seek a diplomatic solution. “No Justice, No Peace,” as they say.

You must invite the leaders of this activist organization to the Belgian Parliament and perhaps tour the EU district. You must learn to feel their pain and understand their needs. You must offer to turn parts of Flanders over to them so that stateless Muslims can have their own state. I have no doubt the Muslim world will applaud your efforts.

You must meet the demands of the protesters in full. In addition, you must offer them Internet services and five-star tourist hotels in exchange for their promising to abandon violence. After all, that is how we in Israel, under my leadership, turned Yasir Arafat into a peace partner!

You see, military force serves no role any more. It is passé. It is archaic. Today, economic interests dominate the world and the Islamist activists of the earth will surely make peace in exchange for some profits from participating in global trade.

The fact is, you have been insufficiently sensitive in understanding the needs of Muslims. You took fundamentalist rhetoric at face value, whereas we in Israel know all this talk is empty and these people simply want peace.

Sure, Muslim fundamentalists praise Hitler and celebrate atrocities, but what is it that they REALLY want? How about sitting down with them in an effort to understand them?
You have been trying to rule over others and failed to be sensitive to their needs and aspirations. You must put your own house in order and eliminate inequality and injustice inside Wallonia, and then the terrorists will no longer target you.

The key is to build a new order in which everyone is so busy with important matters like developing tourism and making investments in high technology that they simply have no time to pursue violence.

Moreover, if you strike at the perpetrators of terrorist attacks, you will simply extend and enlarge the cycle of violence. Your bombs will no doubt injure some innocent children and civilians alongside any terrorist activists you strike, and that will simply enrage the rest of the world and lead the victims to seek revenge.
And if you refuse to negotiate with them, their leaders will be toppled and really violent fanatics will take their place. In that case, you will have lost the window of opportunity to make peace. Begin by declaring a unilateral ceasefire!

Mister Prime Minister, blessed is the peacemaker. All we are saying is give peace a chance. You will be cheered and awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of your statesmanship. Do not allow yourself to be drawn into the gutter of violence. Violence never achieves anything. History is no lesson. History is the dead past. End the cycle of violence. Show restraint. Forgo the juvenile impulse to avenge.

Mister Prime Minister, the proof is in the pudding. My own peace policies have eliminated war and bloodshed and terror from the Middle East. We no longer have terrorists to deal with in the Levant, only potential peace partners. If you follow in my footsteps, you can achieve the same lofty results.
Peacefully yours,

Shimon Peres
Peacemaker-at-Large

  1. Alleen hoop ik dat de uiterst naïeve en laffe “peacemakers” die dit lezen in de gaten hebben dat ze hier enorm op de hak worden genomen en als “pleasemakers” worden weggezet 😉
    Ze zouden dit keiharde stuk dit zomaar als “eer” kunnen opvatten….
    “History is no lesson. History is the dead past”……. is namelijk wat onze Gutmenschen van nu propageren…..

  2. TOLD YOU THE WEED DOES FUNNY THINGS TO PEOPLE IT MUST BE UNDERSTOOD THAT YOU CAN NOT MAKE PEACE WITH MUSLIM TERRORISTS . THE ONLY THING THEY UNDERSTAND IS VIOLENCE AND MURDER . THERE WILL BE NO PEACE WHILE THEY ARE STILL ALIVE

  3. It is not fiction. It is the real thimg. Shame On Peres is friend of Israel's enemies. He made Arafat survive from a plane crash so he could come back to Judea and Samaria and cause deaths and maims by the thousands of Israelis. He created Oslo that had the same outcome with more thousand Jews sent to their final destinations. He and the leftists have such an ego which is detrimental to the security of the Jewish state. To Shrink David you carry well your name. Shrink in your bed.
