Ynet – President Shimon Peres said at the Globes Business Conference that “I am ready to meet with (Iranian President Hassan) Rohani. I don’t have enemies. We don’t see Iran as an enemy. Antagonism isn’t a personal issue. It’s a matter of policy.

“There were days when we didn’t want to meet with Arafat, but when he changed his policies, we said ‘why not?’ We’re in favor of peace, and I believe the goal is to turn enemies into friends.”

    This is a man who I have sympathy for. He lives in a wonderland of disreality. the sooner Israel realizes it has no friends in the world only annihilators and wolves in sheep’s clothing the better off it will be. Time for mr. peres to retire out of the public eye. After all, his naivety is part of the reason we are in danger today. He let Israel’s safety and the jewish people down over and over again.

    In this instance, as a citizen of the Jewish State of Israel, I am very concerned that Mr. Peres will not overstep his duties and function as President of Israel. After having studied the listed duties of the President of Israel as reviewed in some detail on the Israeli Foreign Ministry web site, I aver that the President of Israel presides over and represents the people of Israel and the entire Jewish people in terms of their internal concerns. Prime Minister of Israel Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman represent Israel in the world community inside as well as outside of the Jewish community. I fully respect Mr. Peres as a great leader of the Jewish people, yet I hope that he will not attempt to take on the role of prime minister of Israel, defense Minister and foreign Minister.
