      Peres on Jewish Home: Manners Precede Torah

      President Shim'on Peres criticized members of the Jewish Home (Bayit Yehudi-New National Religious Party) on Friday for walking out of the Knesset during a speech by President Martin Schulz of the European Parliament. The walkout was in response to Schulz's parroting of Palestinian Authority accusations against Israel.

      Using a phrase attributed to Jewish sages during an interview Israel Defense Forces Radio, Peres said, "Wise Jews said that manners precede Torah and that is my advice to everyone."
