Shimon Peres

shimon-peresR.I.P. Shimon Peres. He was 93. One of the last surviving pillars of Israel’s founding generation, who did more than anyone to build up his country’s formidable military might, then worked as hard to establish a lasting peace with Israel’s Arab neighbors, died on Wednesday in a Tel Aviv area hospital. Peres was largely against this policy implemented by the Likud Party – that of austerity and almost brutality which went against the grain of the late leader Yitzhak Rabin (assassinated by radical Jews). Now, with Peres gone, I believe there is very little hope for any sort of peace or hope between Israelis and Palestinians.
