Peres Offers Peace But Stands Defiant to Syria

"To those who are willing, our hand is extended in peace," stated President Shimon Peres. However he warned, "those who try to attack us will pay an intolerable price." President Peres made the comments Wednesday in a special speech commemorating the September 11th attacks and addressing the concern over the Syrian civil war. "We have not threatened anyone, and we will not ignore any threats against us," he added.
