Peres Under Attack for Undermining Leadership
Arutz Sheva ^ | 16/8/12 | Gil Ronen

President Shimon Peres is under attack for undercutting the elected government's stance on the Iranian threat. Besides stating a position that runs counter to the Prime Minister's in a television interview, he is also reported to have accused Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, in closed conversations, of "terrible irresponsibility" in the Iranian matter.

"The honorable president has apparently also been sucked into this unnecessary argument that is damaging for the state of Israel," said MK Moshe Matalon of Yisrael Beytenu.

"As a former prime minister and defense minister, and a person who was privy to spectacular operations that were also controversial and were decided by the political tier, the president needs to show the proper sensitivity," Matalon added.

"In a democracy and a parliamentary regime, the authority and responsibility rest with the executive branch and its head, the prime minister," Matalon continued. "For this reason, the president should demand that the flames of this searing debate be lowered."

Sources close to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu were quoted in two news outlets as saying that "Peres forgot what the role of a president in the state of Israel is."

He often forgets things, such as the difference between the kitchen sink and the toilet.

He’s been forgetting things since his name was persky. I have never understood why he wasn’t persona non grata or why Israelis would ever elect this leftist traitor to any public office.
