....for Shimon Peres, though I would wanna add, that he probably also became a "casualty of his age" over the past few years (Actually, he is a pretty good example for why I strongly believe that there should be an age-limit at let's say 80-82 for politicians or high representatives of a country). Look, I believe, that still in the 90's, Peres had honest intentions about the peace process, and one must not forget the miserable role that Hamas played during that time. But unfortunately over the past years, his legacy became more important to him than the good of the country. He knew exactly, that he was despised by the right and big parts of the mainstream in Israel for his role in the Oslo peace process, and the only chance to win back their respect, was to cosy up to the right, no matter the conse- quences for Israels future. And that's what I see as his big failure, that he put his own legacy over the good for Israel....
