Tehran Times reports....President Shimon Peres.
Speaking exclusively to the Daily Telegraph in an interview published on Tuesday, adds Tehran Times, Peres said Israel has no natural antipathy towards Iran.
Asked if Iran and Israel could ever have direct negotiations with each other, he replied, Why not? The citizens of Iran are not our enemies.
President Peres is considered a global visionary of peace.

Has anyone informed Peres that he’s a powerless head-of-state, and the only thing he can negotiate is the flavor of his morning Metamucil?
Stupid as dirt, yes.
What has Israel to negotiate about with Iran, so long as Iran says it is going to attack and destroy Israel?
and so long as Iran is building up the weapons of mass destruction to do it.
But, my real concern is that this is Peres.
Whatever the future may bring, we can at least pray for a time when Iran decides to “go civilized” and to live in peace with its neighbors (and Israel)... at which time Israel’s government will obviously want to meet with Iran’s leaders and work out the usual peaceful things in the world... ambassadors, travel and trade agreements, etc.
All that could be just wonderful as between Iran and Israel, especially given the high regard Israel holds for Persia, historically speaking, and the natural affinities or complementarities the two countries share.
But I sure would hope Israel would send somebody, almost anybody other than Peres to negotiate with Iran (or anybody else). Peres is a loser, particularly for Israel.
Peres is a loser for Israel., and I wouldn’t trust him to negotiate anything for me either. Not even a parking ticket.
And now he’s got the Persians thinking that he really does have authority. OK. He’ll go “negotiate,” and the cabinet together with the military will plan the raid that we hope they’re very far along in planning.
Of course he is.
Peres was always run by the Democrats or the Soviets... oops - same thing. Same Perski.
Perez needs to go to what ever place jimmy Carter
is going to.
What is there to negociate???
They want to kill us, we don’t want them to, so
let’s work out a deal??? They only kill half of us?
This is insanity.
Nuke them, slag the Iranians so that a thousand years
from now, ancient tales will tell of how the god Allah
was destroyed by an all destroying fire from the heavens,
and then every one lived happily ever after.
At least it would get him out of Israel for a while.
How exactly do you negotiate with someone that wants you and all of your people dead? Where do you start? Do you say “OK, you can kill 25% of us but that’s the best we can do.”? It would be like negotiating with a nest of copperheads under your porch.
Great post !
I love the sound of sanity. It’s like very good music.
The strange thing about Peres, is that he is one or two thousand years old, but still alive and active.
I'd delay committing myself on that before I found out how many tana leaves it takes to get him going in the morning.
It’s the most popular dish in the US Senate Cafeteria.
But he’s now an adopted member of a Bedouin tribe. Can’t he go off and tend to his goats, instead?
I wouldn’t do that to innocent goats.
