Peres: ‘We Have to Forget the Past’
Israeli President Shimon Peres recently said he believes the United Nations vote that upgraded the status of the Palestinian Authority means that Israel and the Palestinians must return to the negotiating table. In order for peace talks to resume, he said, Israel must “forget the past” and move forward. Peres said, “We are not going to deal with Abraham, our father and brother. It’s over.” If Israel’s own leaders begin separating themselves from their biblically grounded heritage, will it finally bring peace?
