    The Israeli writer Yoram Hazony wrote recently a book titled "L?Etat juif" in its French translation. (I am sure an English translation must be available). In it, he talks about the historic evolution of Zionism. When it comes to Shimon Peres, he quotes him as saying: - "Any idea of a small Nation-State - the Jewish State included - has collapsed". - "There is no doubt that the next objective that Israel should pursue is to become a member of the Arab League". Second, consider this excerpt from Mr. Peres?s interview with Ha?aretz following his defeat by Benjamin Netanyahu in the May 1996 prime ministerial election: Interviewer: What happened in this election? Peres: We lost. Interviewer: Who is we? Peres: We, that is the Israelis. Interviewer: And who won? Peres: All those who do not have an Israeli mentality. Interviewer: And who are they? Peres: The Jews. When Peres was foreign minister 1991-95 he applied for Israel?s membership in the Arab League!
