Nobody Lives Forever, Including Shimon Peres, 1923-2016

Love him or hate him, Shimon Peres couldn't be ignored, and most everyone, no matter what you thought of him, thought he'd live forever. Until a short time before his fatal stroke, he acted and moved like a much younger man. The last television clips showed his gait very stiff and halting, as if he was afraid he'd fall.

Yes, Shimon Peres is dead. He did not wake up from the coma. Last night reports were that his organs were beginning to fail, and at 93, his body wasn't all that strong.

Now he's fully in Gd's Hands. Gd will weigh whatever good Peres may have done with all the bad. And as it's just days before Rosh Hashanah quickly followed by Yom Kippur, I don't think it's my place or anyone else's to do the judging.

People don't know enough to judge is intentions - about many, many things - but in some matters, where he seems to have given his reasons, it is possible to judge his wisdom, or at least thw wisdom of thse reasons.

Shimon Peres said he used to be hated by many and now he was loved by everyone and he didn't know what was better.

More exactly, here:

For someone who was dogged for decades by a reputation for vanity and back-room dealing, Mr. Peres ended his years in public office as a remarkably beloved figure, a founding pioneer who set an example for forward thinking by promoting the country’s high-tech prowess and cultural reach.

Never at a loss for a bon mot in his Polish-accented Hebrew, English and French, Mr. Peres said of his transformation: “For 60 years I was the most controversial figure in the country, and suddenly I’m the most popular man in the land. Truth be told, I don’t know when I was happier, then or now.”

To put it bluntly, he was a globalist, not a Jewish neshama. Erev Rav.

Unlike Menachem Begin, Peres was more popular with the elite than ordinary Israelis.
Charming, but strange man.

*** REMEMBERING SHIMON PERES ***
by Mr. Cohen, 2016/9/29


Shimon Peres (born 1923 CE, died 2016 CE) never understood that Muslims have always hated Jews, and will always hate Jews forever, because that is what their religion requires them to do.

Shimon Peres never understood that Muslims have always deceived non-Muslims and will always deceive non-Muslims forever, because that is what their religion requires them to do.

Shimon Peres never understood that according to Islamic Religious Law [sharia], peace-treaties between Muslims and non-Muslims are worthless, and should be violated as-soon-possible by killing the non-Muslims that the peace-treaty was made with.

Shimon Peres never understood that Islam cannot tolerate any Jewish state anywhere in the Middle East, regardless of its size or the shape of its borders.

Shimon Peres never understood that Islam requires that Jews must be constantly oppressed by Muslims and trembling-in-fear before Muslims.

Shimon Peres never understood that Jews having their own land and their own army is extremely offensive to Islam, regardless of its size.

Shimon Peres never understood that Islam requires that Jews must be only a little-bit-better-off than slaves.

Shimon Peres never understood that Muslims view any compromise as humiliation, and humiliation is the worst thing in Muslim culture.

Shimon Peres never understood that tolerance and forgive-and-forget are NOT part of Muslim culture, especially when dealing with non-Muslims.

Shimon Peres never understood that many millions of Muslims believe that Jews are apes and pigs.

Shimon Peres never understood the Muslim belief that the Muslim-Messianic-Era cannot occur until ALL JEWS EVERYWHERE ARE DEAD.

Since Shimon Peres was a good-hearted person, he was unable to comprehend the amazing wickedness of Islam and Muslims.

Shimon Peres tried to negotiate peace with Muslims, but with zero understanding of Muslim beliefs.

The result: The Oslo Accords were a disaster for Israel, and the severe troubles that Israel faces now were caused by it.

Peres refused to accept the truth. He preferred the fame snd fortune of our enemies.
