....just in case, bottomline was: I believe that Peres was sincere during the 90's with his intentions for peace (Hamas played a very miserable role there too). However, over the past few years, his legacy became the most important to him, and he knew exactly, that because of Oslo, he was despised by the right and big parts of the mainstream in Israel. And that's why he decided to make "nice, nice" with the right-wingers and their policies, thereby ignoring the dangerous consequences for Israels future.
