Barak and Peres really do live on a different planet don't they?! I like the line: "IDF operations are what brought about economic prosperity in the West Bank, liberated Lebanon from the wrath of Hezbollah, and enabled Gaza residents to return to their daily routines." Of course Peres omits to mention that 'IDF operations' also resulted in the brutal deaths of hundreds upon hundreds of innocent civilians and the wanton destruction of civilian infrastructure in Lebanon/WB/Gaza. In the 'real world' it was Hezbollah who 'liberated' Lebanon from the IDF occupation. In the 'real world' the civilians of Gaza cannot 'return to their daily routines' as they are still, after decades, under brutal Israeli occupation. In the 'real world' economic prosperity in the West Bank has been stymied by the theft of land and resources and illegal Israeli settlements. Barak and Peres are basically full of BS...
