    What's unique about President Peres, on behalf of the State of Israel, is his perseverance in the struggle for a peace agreement with the Palestinians. Apparently, in his speech to the ambassadors in Jerusalem, he's spoken similarly with positive attributes about the PA and President Abbas, as well as about the successes of Israeli society as he's done here in Canada just over perhaps 6 months ago. My family heard him speak and he's very proud of Israel. It really mystifies me as to why in the world would anyone criticize President Peres, a courageous founder of the modern democratic State of Israel and truly a politician of great integrity and invaluable to the Jewish community-at-large. Everyone knows he's been consistently correct about Israel's foreign policy in advocating for peace and that's the reason for his popularity worldwide.
