    Last night's televised Presidential Birthday Gala event heralded the triumph of a leading Israeli public servant and peace maker, and optimist for a better Middle East for two nations, that for Israel and that for a peaceful Palestinian neighbor for most of his latter life. This :"Zio" politician as you put it was a lynchpin of the failed Oslo talks. Oslo failed for a very simple reason, and this reason was echoed in last nights event. Dignitaries from all over the world came, or sent televised greetings to well wish President Peres for his life of Public Service, for his efforts to forge peace in this region. A short list included the leaders of France, Germany, USA, Spain, Russia and more. But the one unspoken silence that nobody dared talk about was the absence of a single Palestinian or representative of the Arab world. Guess what :"By but he did it nicely ;)", peace fails because of you and your people never stop failing in your own failings to make peace. :)
