I can see it now both my conservative and liberal friends are finally united..they probably all think I have finally lost my marbles. Well I have news for you both, I haven’t, I know exactly what I am saying and I totally meant it.

No Not Bush—“Shimon Kramer” Peres. One day after he took office I am officially calling for him to just get the hell out—don’t pass GO don’t collect $200 just GO HOME ! If you have any love for Israel with-in that body of a career political hack resign TODAY. Peres is a favorite of the international community. Why? Because he looks like a European, speaks like a European, and announces the ending point of where he will negotiate to before there is any negotiation–thus telling those who would destroy Israel that if they hold out instead of negotiating they can get what they want. Peres gave us Oslo, which gave the PLO the 98% of the west bank, a capital in Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, it gave Israel—an enabled Yassir Arafat and years of homicide bombings. Yesterday at his inauguration as President of Israel…he announced that he wanted to put the country through the same thing again. While the disengagement process is a failed policy at least it was a DIFFERENT policy. Peres is dooming Israel to the same mistakes that she has made before. This never been elected career is more interested in being loved by Europe that creating security for his people. When will he ever learn? Naomi Ragen writes

Friends, I write little these days, because it upsets me to bring you bad news and ruin your day. And there is so little else to report. We “celebrate” Mr. Peres becoming President, a man whose naive and disproven policies got us murdered in our streets and in our restaurants and in our beds and Passover Seders. A person who is directly responsible for exposing the Jews of Israel to the worst excesses of her enemies without response. And now, unlike former presidents, who vowed not to sully the office with their personal politics, to be the President of all Israelis, he has said upfront that he intends to push his failed policies with the all the power and prestige of his new title. I, for one, will never wait on line to shake his hand. To me, having a President who was a suspected sex offender was better than having Shimon Peres as President. Not that I am in anyway condoning his predecessor. As for our Prime Minister, Mr. Olmert’s decision to take the murderers of our people off the list of “most wanted” to strengthen Fatah against Hamas, I agree with MK Eldad: “Whoever thinks that the Fatah gunmen will disarm is naive, whoever believes that they will stop killing Jews is stupid, and whoever tries to strengthen the Tanzim and the Aksa Martyrs Brigades is a criminal.”—MK Aryeh Eldad (NU/NRP)

Peres will take on diplomatic roles’ Herb Keinon, THE JERUSALEM POST Jul. 15, 2007 It is obvious to the Foreign Ministry, officials there said Sunday, that President Shimon Peres will take on various diplomatic roles. According to one ministry source, this has been the case over the last 15 years, regardless of which position Peres has held. “Peres is a one-man foreign ministry,” the official said, adding that this was not necessarily a bad thing. “This has been the situation for some time, and we are used to it.” The official said Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni had largely been pushed out of the “loop” by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, so she will not necessarily feel any of her authority whittled away by Peres. Livni said in a television interview after Peres’s swearing-in ceremony that she welcomed Peres as president, and in fact was one of the first to push forward the idea earlier in the year, against those who warned that he would chip away at her authority. “If anyone is likely to feel Peres’s presence, it is Olmert,” one Foreign Ministry official said. “He is the one dealing with the diplomacy that Peres is interested in. But Olmert backed him consistently, and Peres owes Olmert a debt. There is no reason for Peres to do anything against Olmert’s interests.” On the contrary, the official said Olmert could use Peres and his elevated stature in the world to push forward his own diplomatic agenda. National Union MK Zvi Hendel accused Peres of starting his presidency on the wrong foot by telling The Associated Press on Sunday that Israel would have to give up land. “Even before entering his job, he is doing everything to divide the nation into sectors and playing into the hands of his friends, the murderers of the PLO,” Hendel said. “At a time when bombs continue to explode, he says we have to grant the murderers an additional prize by uprooting settlements in Judea and Samaria. I pity him and I hope he doesn’t think the presidency gives him immunity.” In an interview with The Associated Press prior to his inauguration, Peres said peace with the Palestinians would require Israel to withdraw from significant pieces of the West Bank. “We have to get rid of the territories,” he said, insisting that this was the majority view in Israel today. He said he would use the presidency to “encourage” the government to take steps for peace, offer advice to the nation’s leaders and “speak to the people. “In public life, you don’t use swords, you use words,” he said. “You talk to people, you have dialogue. That’s what I’m going to do. I don’t have any force but the force of my conviction,” he said. Although his vision of a “new Middle East” never materialized, Peres has not given up on it. Throughout his interview with The Associated Press, he refused to dwell on the past, insisting on discussing future projects like ending global warming and poverty, and making vague references to “the cosmos” and improving the world for youth. Peres said he would be willing to meet a president of Iran if it would advance the cause of peace, but not the current leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has repeatedly called for Israel’s elimination. Peres noted the long history of ties between Jewish and Persian leaders from Biblical times and until Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution. One Foreign Ministry official said that Peres – who is expected to travel widely as president, just as he did in his previous positions – would actually increase the work for the ministry. He will be accompanied in all his visits abroad by the local Israeli ambassador, and will need the staff work of the ministry. Beyond the narrow interests of the ministry, the official said, there was no questioning Peres’s ability to explain Israel’s position abroad, as well as the value of his wide popularity overseas. Olmert was full of praise for Peres at Sunday’s cabinet meeting, saying that if academic research would be done into the characteristics needed by the president of Israel, Peres would be the model. “This is a big day for the State of Israel. It is an important day for our public life,” Olmert said. “It is possible to say he is one of the most prominent people in the world; there is respect for him that radiates on Israel as well. It is an honor for Israel that Shimon Peres is its president.” One senior official in the Prime Minister’s Office, when asked if there was concern that Peres would chart an independent foreign policy, said that Olmert and Peres would work in close coordination. Israel, the official said, “cannot ask for a better ambassador.” Gil Hoffman contributed to this report.
