"Shimon Peres was in favor of real negotiations with the Palestinians and he several times inserted himself into the process to urge the hawkish Benjamin Netanyahu to start talking rather than saber rattling. ... Former Jerusalem Post editor Steve Linde wrote a fascinating article last week in his old newspaper detailing a meeting he and the Post's managing editor had with Shimon Peres in 2014. According to Linde, Peres was asked what he thought was his greatest legacy. He replied that he had personally intervened to stop Netanyahu from ordering a preemptive strike on Iran's nuclear sites. Asked by the journalists when they could report this revelation, Peres responded, 'when I'm dead.' So it came to pass last week. How much for the worse things have become in Israeli-Palestinian relations with the passing on of anyone preferring negotiations to violence." (10/03/16)
