On Sunday evening, President Obama announced in Washington that Israeli President Shimon Peres will be awarded the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom later this year.

Peres, who is already a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, went to California on Tuesday to meet with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.  Just after 9 A.M. ET Peres and Zuckerberg launched a new social media page dedicated to providing youth from around the world with a platform for injecting their ideas on how to achieve peace in the Middle East.

Peres said the new platform can help change the discourse of debate over Middle Eastern politics, in a new and transparent manner, by providing ordinary citizens with a way to discuss their ideas.

The page can “convince people they don’t have reason to hate. Hate is an unnecessary addition to our lives,” he said.

    Is this website directed at the Arabs, the so-called modern day Palestinians, and their leaders or is this just another sell-out and die campaign of those who refuse to acknowledge the reality that the Palestinian Authority, Fatah, all members of the Arab League and Arab Muslim leaders have refused to even acknowledge the right for Jews to even exist, anywhere, let alone in Israel, a supposedly non-legal country.

      Is this new Parez-Zuckerberg website directed at the Arabs, the so-called modern day Palestinians, and their leaders, or is this just another “Jews should sell-out and die” campaign of those who refuse to acknowledge the reality that the Palestinian Authority, Fatah, all members of the Arab League and Arab Muslim leaders have refused to even acknowledge the right for Jews to even exist, anywhere (think Toulouse), let alone in Israel, a supposedly non-legal country.
