Peres is absolutely correct about many things. A state has a right and a duty to defend itself. When Israel launched its unprovoked attack on Gaza on Nov. 4, 2008, killing six Palestinians and starting the war (look it up if you don't believe me), the government of Gaza had no choice but to launch a (completely ineffective) counterattack. Israel escalated, and killed something like 300 Palestinians before the Palestinians managed a single Israeli casualty. "Gaza was overrun by a murderous, illegitimate terrorist organization" - except it was/is Israel not Hamas. "The comparison between those who foment terrorism and its victims is unconscionable". Trying to compare the Palestinian's pitiful attempts to defend themselves to Israel's state terrorism is disgusting.
