Shimon Peres Admits He Was Wrong
Israeli President Shimon Peres admits he was wrong about withdrawing from Gaza.
President Shimon Peres said Wednesday that he had erred in supporting Israel’s unilateral withdrawal from Gaza.
The revealing remarks come three years after Israel’s evacuation of the volatile coastal strip which has since been seized by Hamas.
“Whatever will happen in the future, we shall not repeat the mistakes we made in leaving Gaza,” Peres said in a question and answer session with a group of American Jewish leaders. “It should have been done otherwise. I was for leaving Gaza. I consider myself as one of the persons mistaken.”
This, of course, is not the first time Peres has been wrong, with disastrous results.
