The Government Press Office released a copy of the official international guest list at Shimon Peres' 80th birthday celebration, scheduled for this Sunday evening in Tel Aviv. Over 200 people from close to 45 countries have been invited, including:
* Italian architect Mr. Massimiliano Fuksas;
* Director of Malta Airport Ms. Rosette Fenech;
* Mr. Maulana Wahiduddin-Khan, President of The Islamic Center in India;
* Mr. Heinz Fischer Second President of the National Council, Deputy Leader of the Social Democratic Party of Austria Austria;
* 17 Englishmen including Rt. Hon. Lord Justice Rix Lord Justice of Appeal, Member of the Privy Council;
* and 50 Americans, including Bill Clinton.

Jewish Leadership and Women in Green are planning to attend the birthday party, or at least stand outside, in protest of Peres' leadership of the Oslo process. "Since Peres has ruined the birthday parties of 8,000 people in the past three years, 800 of whom never reached their next birthday, it is only fitting that we ruin his," they say, noting in particular the fact that he is "unrepentant." This was clearly evidenced by his interview with Arutz-7's Kobi Finkler this week, when he defended Oslo as follows: "Ten years is a very short time, historically. We now have a Palestinian partner that recognizes Israel, we have a deep change in the Likud's ideology in that they now recognize the two-state solution... I see tremendous progress, despite the difficulties, which are natural... I have no regrets."
