Peres: We Uprooted Communities, the Arabs Kept Bombing

President Shimon Peres said in a speech at the United Nations that Israel withdrew completely from Gaza and "dismantled our settlements," but Hamas responded with a bloody coup and turned Gaza into a base for firing missiles. "They kept abducting and bombing, while bringing destruction to innocent families," he added.

"These people of war offer no positive alternative, only suffering like that of Job," Peres said.
