Shimon Peres (1923–2016) was the Prime Minister of Israel and the ninth President of Israel, a role that is more ceremonial than its United States equivalent. He has had a long history in Israeli politics and shared the Nobel Peace Prize for his role in the Oslo Accords in 1994. Unfortunately, that early promise for peace never materialized.

Peres is known for praising Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas as “Israel’s hope for peace” and refused to condemn his new year’s speech in which Nazi collaborator Mohammed Amin Al-Husseini was lauded.[1]
