Israel’s President Shimon Peres donned tribal gear for his meeting with Osei Tutu II, king of the Ashanti Empire, West Africa, at the President’s residence in Jerusalem on Sunday.
If only they could keep him in these very colorful meetings which his predecessors used to engage in as the core of their service, and leave him no room for unhelpful comments on real things, like the Levy committee.
At 88 years of age, Peres is the world’s oldest democratically elected head of state. He was sworn into office on July 15, 2007, for a seven-year term. That means he has a little less than two years to go.
Keep those folks from exotic places coming!
