Israel: Election Results

Desert Peace from Israel gives us his two cents on the results of the Israeli elections. “Also Israel has, since an hour ago, a new President. Shimon Peres, a man who never was elected to any government position in his 50 year old political career was finally elected to a redundant position,” he notes.

    I wish this page was not 2 years behind the times.
    It happens that these comments regarding Mr. Peres are accurate but quite superficial. If you would take the time to read him I think that that you would agree that he is a brilliant man, much too smart to succeed at politics.
