Will Israel Send President Peres for An Early Retirement?
In Israel the president does not get involved in politics, but President Shimon Peres does get involved and his politics are destructive. Peres is destroying Israel with his former USA president Jimmy Carter style lies.
Had he been honest, instead of the corrupt, deceptive and egotistic he is, he would have been, first and foremost, apologizing for concocting the Oslo Accords, mind you, behind the nations' back, that has caused his nation so many "victims of peace" deaths.
Then he would be saying that now he knows what a tragedy the Oslo Accord has been and is, because he now understands the Palestinian Authority represents an Islamic jihad ideology agenda according to which it has been operating all along.
And finally, he would be calling the entire Osloid-2-state idea off, saying: there will be no Palestinian state on our land and thus I call for this mistaken idea to be immediately removed from Israel's political agenda.

I kind of understand the hard core, Jewish Left hate-Israel ideology, because their ideology is based on hating themselves as Jews which they willingly adopt. But Peres is one of the state of Israel founders and so I don't get his constant nonsensical babbling that is opposed to Israel's interests.
Nevertheless, it does not matter what I do not get; it matters what I do get, that Peres is destructive to Israel, in a way worse than Jimmy Carter and not too far behind Barack Obama.
A truth teller president must replace Peres and the sooner the better. The president of a country should be telling the truth, not Leftist fables. Had Israel have a fine tuned, true telling, President, some of the pressure constantly put on Prime Minister Netanyahu by international forces would be lifted.
Today, Diaspora Minister Yuli Edelstein said that Peres' comments hurt Israel's public diplomacy efforts; "We spit blood trying to counter the Palestinian propaganda, and Peres takes our efforts backwards," the minister grumbled.

What President Peres keeps on saying is that the Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas-Abu Mazen is a partner to peace and that is right out lie. Surely Peres knows that the history of the Palestinian Authority's chairman Abu Mazen is ingrained in anti-Semitism and terror. He is a graduate of Moscow University where his Ph.D. thesis was: Holocaust Denial; he managed the logistics of the Munich Massacre in which eleven Israeli athletes were murdered in 1972 and same Abu Mazen is one of the engineers and supporters of contemporary Palestinian hate education, which has become a production line for terrorists with no end in sight. So the question to Peres is: is that what you call a peace partner?
Edelstein was right when he told Arutz Sheva that it is now clear that the Oslo Accords were a nightmare, a nightmare Peres was its mastermind.
It is rather shocking that Israelis have elected for president the architect of the disastrous Oslo Accords when the destructiveness of these agreements were already apparent. Honoring Peres with the president post was in fact an insult to every victim of terror and their families.
It is becoming clearer by the day that Israelis have woken up from the Oslo Accords strike, by Peres et al, that kept them in a state of concussion for twenty years. The Oslo Genie lie is out of the bottle and even Peres cannot put her back in with his twisted words of deception. The Israelis are tired of these lies which they no longer prepare to buy.
I think that Israelis are ready for a truth teller as a president, not one who minces words, a real honest to goodness truth teller.
However, liberals do not apologize for their wrongs and since Peres is a liberal and the architect of the Oslo Accords, he will not admit his awful mistake.
In Israel the president does not get involved in politics but it appears that Peres thinks he is above the law; time to show him he is not and send him home for an early retirement, in January 2013.
