  1. Mr. Peres, does your heart go out to the poeple of Isreal, who were forced out of their homes once, twice, and again?? Does your heart go out to the poeple of your own country who go to sleep at night not knowing what tomorrow will bring?? Do you care for the pathetic citizens who look for shelter daily, protecting themselves from the storm of missiles which fall daily not letting themm live a day of peace??!!! What are you doing Mr. President for the poeple of your own nation whos suffering knows no bounds??? Look no further than Isreal to see distruction, pain, fear, and death!! And how are you solving the problem?? SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!

  2. I have no idea what comments 1 & 2 are talking about! Is Peres to blame for terrorism? Peres did the professional and proper thing by contacting the U.S. in a time of disaster. What are you blaming him for?!
