Elkin: Peres Back to His Old Self


Coalition Chairman MK Ze’ev Elkin criticized President Shimon Peres on Thursday evening, after his comments regarding Iran.

“It’s too bad that President Shimon Peres is going back to being the old Peres of Oslo and suggesting once again that we gamble with the security of the citizens of the State,” said Elkin.

“If Begin had listened to Peres at the time, Saddam Hussein would have attacked us with missiles of another kind entirely during the Gulf War. If Rabin would have listened less to Peres at the time, we would not have gotten a terror base and missiles in Gaza threatening the south and Gush Dan,” he added.
