The subject of President Shimon Peres’s speech at the Sixth Annual Negev Conference in Sderot on Tuesday was not a surprise, but his contrasting a peaceful-seeking nation with one that is isolated says volumes about his view from the Ivory Tower.

After his expressing his delight at the Israeli government’s going along for the ride with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to the Peace Process Cemetery, Peres said, “We are not an isolated nation’ we never were. We are a nation that seeks peace.”

He was wrong on one point. Israel indeed is an isolated nation. The reason it is isolated is his second point – that Israel seeks peace.

  1. Arty Cohn says:

    Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu's closing comment was inappropriate. Shiomon Peres has uttered many foolish statements over the years see the booklet by the AFSI "Shimon Sez") But this statement encompasses a lot of truth.

  2. Peres must go, he is delusional and is responsible for many Israeli death.
