Israel's relations with US 'in crisis', says Shimon Peres
Interview: The former president says the Palestinian leader is a partner for peace and urges Israel to "go for a two-state solution"
Israel must overcome a “crisis” in relations with America by rebuilding its bipartisan support among Democrats and Republicans, Shimon Peres said on Tuesday.
The former president of Israel told The Telegraph that reviving the “two-state solution” to the conflict with the Palestinians offered the best way of healing the rift with Washington.
But Mr Peres conceded that he did not know whether Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, genuinely favoured this formula or not.
During a career stretching back to the 1950s, Mr Peres served in 12 governments and was prime minister three times. Along the way, he was the defence minister who authorised the rescue of 102 hostages from Entebbe in Uganda in 1976 – one of Israel’s most celebrated feats of arms - and won the Nobel Peace Prize for helping to negotiate the Oslo accords.
Mr Peres later served as president until his retirement last July. During a visit to London, the 91-year-old elder statesman carefully avoided any explicit criticism of his old rival, Mr Netanyahu.
Any sane Jew would say the same as Peres said . the problem is they all are afraid of the world reputed criminal assassin Netanyahu a genocide criminal side by side People in US people like the Speaker and Senate majority leader of the congress is shockingly his supporters and did treachery with the US nation in Israel’s support.
If such would have been the case with any other nation doing such treachery with US then that nation would have been severely punished but this doing nothing to Israel would entail a big price US would have to pay in future.
If by this September ‘2015 Netanyahu fails to come to a compromise then US would recognize Palestine as an independent sovereign state and would not use veto power to block the trail of genocide case by ICC at Hague.
However, I feel Netanyahu would remain adamant to see if President OBAMA at all has the courage to recognize Palestine, where by doing so he might make the worst mistake in his life.
