"We have deep respect for [U.S.] parliamentary and executive institutions, led by President Obama," Peres told a group of high school students in Holon. "We want these relations and are interested in returning them to their regular, positive state." Maybe it's time you had acted on your words, Shimon. But you don't...this is a salami tactic...you saying one thing and the cabinet doing something else altogether - which by the way, Shimon, you would also have done if, IF, you had ever won an Israëli election. You are a good bureaucrat & henchman but not a good politician, Shimon. It's way past retirement time for you, many people are tired of you and your double speak. Cut a few ribbons & complete your term without interfering in the political process. It's not the place of the president of Israël to do that.
