The near-total support for Israel here in The Netherlands is in decline for over two or three decades now. It`s mainly caused by a lack of knowledge about the events that took place surrounding the establishment of Israel. Mr. Peres had a very interesting meeting with Dutch students in which he answered questions about current developments in Israel and the Palestinian territories. It is disturbing to see how the students `judge` Israel just over the present developments without considering the historical context in which these have taken place. But mr. Peres showed he`s the right man in the right place, and I hope he will be with us for many years to come.
