Peres: Listen to What Rouhani Did not Say

Share Button

President Shimon Peres found himself in rare agreement with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at Davos Thursday in denouncing the speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the 2014 World Economic Forum.

After the Prime Minister warned everyone not be deceived by Rouhani’s smiles, Peres said at a press conference, “The most significant remarks were the ones he didn’t make – he didn’t express support for peace in the Middle East. He is the only leader I know who didn’t say clearly the time has come to make peace between Israel and the Arabs.

“He excluded the reference to peace and when he was asked if his vision included all countries he said it included only the ones that Iran will accept, that is some definition.

“He didn’t announce that in order to reduce the bloodshed in Syria, he’s going to stop sending arms and money to Hezbollah to the stop the killing. He could have announced that seeing as he doesn’t want a nuclear bomb that he will stop building long range missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

“He didn’t announce that Iran will stop being the center of terror in our time. “

Lest anyone think that President Peres’ vision of the world might have improved, he put them at ease by stating his support for U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. “I believe President Obama is trying to do the right thing and the US has decided not to stop the sanctions fully until they see the results,” Peres declared.” Secretary Kerry is doing an excellent job with dynamism and determination. There are different opinions, different options and it is normal that they are being examined.”

  1. Iran does not want peace even if the whole world followed there false profit they would still want war

  2. Iran does not want peace even if the whole world followed there false profit they would still want war

  3. and yet he wants us to buy into Abbass's smiles? Its time for Peres to retire.

  4. The bigger story today is the statement from Iran that they won't be stopping any of their nuclear program. WHAT A SHOCKER!! As it was with Adolph Hitler and Neville Chamberlain just prior to WWII so it is with John Kerry and the Iranian deal that has been made. Hand shakes and platitudes have not been a successful deterrent and have not in fact won the concessions needed to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb. So now with two new generations of centrifuges installed that should allow Iran to need only perhaps 2 weeks to take 5% uranium and process it up to weapons grade or there abouts, it leaves us with the cold hard facts. Iran is now going to become a nuclear armed nation IF they have not already done so. As if this were not bad enough we also heard yesterday that they are going to send a fleet of ships into the Atlantic. I would STRONGLY suggest to president Obama and the Sec of Defense that they draw a number of VERY well defined red lines in the waters of the Atlantic or they just might find that someone has set off a nuclear weapon near one of our coast lines. This is what conservatives and Christians meant when we said that it is impossible to allow Iran to have nuclear weapons. Now it just might be hard to sleep peacefully at night for a great number of people. We Christians are to keep our faith in God. However these events once again point to the fact that these are the end times spoken of in the Bible and Iran has to gain a bit of power in order to fulfill it’s role in Ezekiel 38 that will take place in the middle of the tribulation period soon to come. In July of 2012 I wrote a small booklet that talks about some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next
