Without a doubt President Shimon Peres would be supportive of the protesters for social justice in Israel - what's he been doing all these last decades as Israel's most obvious proponent of social justice, domestically and with regards to Israel's peace efforts? I don't think Shimon Peres, a worldly-respected veteran Israeli statesman in his 80's, should continue to take the blame of all the country's mishaps both with regards to foreign policy and domestic policy. The problem in Israel has been that there's no consensus into the direction the country needs to take - Shimon Peres has consistently supported most governments, not for his own sake, but for the well being of the Jewish state. Why should Peres continue to be the fall guy? What's wrong with balancing it out a bit with others and primarily with PM Benjamin Netanyahu?
