My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British prime minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it is peace for our time." – Neville Chamberlain, September 30, 1938

"History is made of biographies of men and women who failed to forecast the future." – Shimon Peres, Amman, May 26, 2013.

Tragically, Shimon Peres turns reality and truth on its head.

Israel’s president, Peres is celebrated by the Left, the liberals, the ever naïve peaceniks, and low information crowd as the “great peacemaker,” yet the words of the lofty biblical Jewish prophet, Jeremiah, are even more deafening today than ever: “Peace, peace but there is no peace.”

And a true and lasting peace with the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians, and with the entire Muslim world, is as illusory as a mirage in the desert. Yet the macabre Peres peace-fest takes place devoid of all authenticity as if it has been transported back in time to the September 30, 1938 return of Neville Chamberlain from Munich.
