COMMENT POSTED TO THE GUARDIAN

 

Shimon Peres as his favorite leader?

Well at least this provides an opportunity to comment on Mr. Peres whose obituary yesterday permitted no comments.

Mr. Peres was the political father of the Israeli nuclear arsenal and all the deception and law-breaking that went into its creation.

Mr. Peres also was involved in serious atrocities in Lebanon.

And he was the Israeli leader who more or less created the framework for the seemingly-eternal occupation of Palestinians we see today, surely one of the world’s ugliest human rights problems.

Despite his intelligence and eloquence, Mr. Peres was actually a pretty dark figure.
