Right words, wrong person

Reader comment on item: When Israel Stood Up to Washington [in 1981]

Submitted by Paul (United States), Apr 6, 2010 at 16:34

PM Netanyahu lacks the stature to make a statement like Begin's with authenticity. However, President Peres does have this moral stature. He is an authentic founding father for Israel. I think it best if Peres were to make such a statement directly to President Obama, but if he cannot get this direct contact a public statement might be useful. Such a statement would make clear that the issue is not the poicies of Israel's current government, but a more fundamental disagreement between Israel and the current executive branch of the USA.
