Peres is ALWAYS first, and foremost, for Peres. This is the man, as is well known. And Peres has a lot to lose if he antagonizes Netanyahu. By law, an Israeli President may leave the country only with the authorization of the cabinet. Up to now, Peres was behaving well. He was allowed MANY foreign trips, probably more than all his predecessors combined, and for a good reason. Our official Foreign Minister Lieberman is an unwanted presence in the West, and Peres helps in picking up the slack. In return, Peres is careful to defend the Netanyahu government abroad, and not to antagonize it at home. Imagine what would happen to Peres if he antagonizes Netanyahu; he will be sitting in Israel for years, no more foreign trips, no talking to prominents of the world, a really boring life for him. This is the price, Akiva Eldar. It is time for you to understand Peres and not to hope for miracles.
