    For the generation of Peres, which sees everything through the black & white lens of the holocaust, security literally means military security. Which translates to a tight control of Palestinian territory, restriction of Palestinian movement, free operation of IDF and Shinbet in Palestinian lands. This is a dinosaur-like solution to Israel's current security situation, which is primarily the loss of US strategic interest in Israel. Middle East has changed, world has changed, but Peres notion of security is the same as 60 years ago. Just like the haredim notion of messiahnia is locked into the exodus. For them the exodus feels like the defining event, for Peres the holocaust is the defining event. Time, unfortunately, moves on caring little for either Peres or the Haredim, leaving Israelis stranded in the forks of history, again. (And then they say "never again". Never again WHAT???)
