Peres is of course competitive, and was called by Rabin "an indefatigable underminer", in his attempt to move him out of competing for the top position. But it doesn't end there. Peres is "hungry". It is said about him that he not only want the meal, but will not leave to others even the crumbs. In this way he did not allow any younger heir apparent to develop in his shadow.

But you cannot expect him to do anything for anybody if this will cost himeven crumbs..
