Former president Shimon Peres issued scathing criticism at the 19th annual Rabin memorial Saturday night of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of the peace process with the Palestinians and of his government’s approach to the conflict. “There are those who have turned the word ‘peace’ into a derogatory term, and there are those who consider ‘peace supporters’ as delusional people. I say clearly today: Those who have given up on peace are the delusional ones. Those who gave up and stopped looking for peace. they’re the naive ones, the ones who are not patriots” said Peres at the Tel Aviv event, held in the square where prime minister Yitzhak Rabin was gunned down on November 4, 1995.

“We have all sorts of so-called smart people who talk about ‘managing the conflict’ instead of peace. Take a look at what happened in Gaza over the summer and what is happening in Jerusalem as of late. That is what ‘managing the conflict’ looks like,” the former president charged, speaking to a crowd of thousands. “Where is the Israeli peace initiative?” he asked, adding that it was better to have an imperfect peace than a raging conflict. “The peace accords with Jordan and Egypt taught us that it’s better to have a cold peace than a ‘hot’ war.” “The State of Israel would be giving up on its future if it pursues the status quo and remains without peace,” Peres warned.

The only one who is really delusional is the one who thinks he can male peace with the Islamists. Peres needs to head off to the old folks home. He is senile. :((

Mr Peres and anti-Israel cranks out there: Thinking there is any peace to be had with those who state over and over in the most clear, unambiguous and boastful terms that they want me dead, and have proved that by their actions thousands and thousands and thousands of times over - that's the delusional thinking.

And your *peace talks*? They haven't worked for over 66 years. Not even in your terms as PM, Mr Peres. And the would-be genocidists were not as numerous, inflamed, organized and well-funded as they are now. Notice the momentum of Israel's unilateral sworn enemies: away from this *peace* you speak of and toward terrorism and genocide.

Our survival now, talks later.

(Peres may well be demented, about half of 85yo have Alzheimers. He's 90.)
