AZL flag holder TransparentShimon Peres (August 2nd, 1923 – September 28th, 2016) was a Jewish politician and the ninth President of the Jewish terrorist organisation known as Israel that has been occupying Palestine since 1948. Peres was born Szymon Perski, in Wiszniew, Poland (now Vishnyeva, Belarus), to Jewish parents Yitzhak (1896–1962) and Sara (1905–1969 née Meltzer) Perski. The family spoke Hebrew and Yiddish at home. In 1932, Peres’ father immigrated to Palestine and settled in Tel Aviv. The family followed him in 1934. Peres attended Balfour Elementary School and High School, and Geula Gymnasium (High School for Commerce) in Tel Aviv. In 1941 he was elected Secretary of HaNoar HaOved VeHaLomed, a Labour Zionist youth movement. At age 20, he was elected to the HaNoar HaOved VeHaLomed national secretariat and three years later, he took over the movement having won a majority. The head of Mapai, the dominant force in Israeli politics until its merger into the modern-day Israeli Labour Party in 1968, David Ben-Gurion, and Berl Katznelson appointed him to Mapai’s secretariat. In 1944, Peres led an illicit expedition into the Negev, then a closed military zone requiring a permit to enter. The expedition, consisting of a Palmach scout, a zoologist, and an archaeologist was funded by Ben-Gurion and planned by Palmach head Yitzhak Sadeh, as part of a plan for future Jewish settlement once Palestine had been seized and occupied. Peres and Moshe Dayan were chosen as the two youth delegates in the Mapai delegation to the Zionist Congress in Basel in 1946 and in 1947 Peres joined the Haganah, the predecessor of the Israel Defence Forces. By 1953 as Director-General he was involved in arms purchases acquiring the advanced Dassault Mirage III French jet fighter, established the Dimona nuclear reactor and entered into a tri-national agreement with France and the United Kingdom, positioning Jewish occupied Palestine in what would become the 1956 Suez Crisis (invasion of Egypt by the Jewish terrorist organization called Israel). Peres was also responsible for Operation Entebbe in which rather than free Palestinian political prisoners Jewish terrorists of the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) murdered three hostages, 45 Ugandan soldiers and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and their allies. Peres was described by The New York Times as having done “more than anyone to build up his country’s formidable military might” While on the subject of Iran Peres stated, “we must quickly and decisively establish a strong, aggressive coalition of nations that will impose painful economic sanctions on Iran”, adding “Iran’s efforts to achieve nuclear weapons should keep the entire world from sleeping soundly.” On September 13th, 2016, Peres, aged 93, suffered a “massive stroke” and was hospitalized at the Sheba Medical Centre in Jewish occupied Palestine. He died two weeks later. On hearing of his death, tributes came from leaders across the world. The President of Russia, Vladimir Putin said: “I was extremely lucky to have met this extraordinary man many times. And every time I admired his courage, patriotism, wisdom, vision and ability.” The President of Communist China, Xi Jinping said: “His death is the loss of an old friend for China.” While the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee said: “Peres would be remembered as a steadfast friend of India.”
