Peres Speech: 3,000 Words, No Mention of Terror


President Shimon Peres' inauguration speech, which pundits said was a very long one compared to previous inauguration orations, contained 3,000 words. The word 'peace' was used 14 times, and its Hebrew equivalent, "shalom," appeared two more times.

The word "terror" was not uttered once.

Shimon Peres is considered to be a primary architect of the Oslo talks with the PLO in 1993, which led to the creation of a death cult and terrorist infrastructure in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, and the savage murder of more than 1,500 Israelis in the past 14 years – one for every other word in Peres's speech.
