How can a dove talk peace when he encouraged the cast lead operation against Gaza? Also as prime minister, the massacre of Qana in Lebanon was committed durring his time. And please Peres don't speak about democracy as you plainly said when the Egyptian revolution took place "Dictatorship is better than Extremism" and then when it succeeded you hoped for a democratic Egypt. For the past two years Peres supported Netanyahu regardless of his political maneuvers and international criticisms of his government. I admire your sweet talk and pragmatism Peres but even showing that dovish look from the outside costed you failed elections and short tenure as prime minister. If you really are for peace why do you join and support right wing governments throughout your career and refrain from speaking against all forms of injustice against Palestinians?
