    Sorry Mr. Peres -you can't ignore the past, because Israel is still continuing with the same policies of dispossession, land grabs, and withholding of democratic rights of the Palestinian people, erasing their culture and history, while using he Bible to justify the taking over of the whole of Eretz Israel, forgetting all the history of the intervening years. Israel holds Remembrance, Holocaust memorials and Independence days every year, while ruling against the Palestinians remembering the Nakba. Even now, the Prawer Law will clear 30,000 Bedouin from their ancestral lands in the Negev, and the Jahalin Bedouin, who were from the same tribe, are being cleared from Khan Al Amr, to make way for the illegal settlements of E1 and Maale Adumim, built on Palestinian land. How then can they forget the history being repeated daily in Israel's illegal actions under international law?
