Jerusalem - Israeli President Shimon Peres says his country has missed opportunities to forge a historic peace agreement with the Palestinians.

Peres told Haaretz daily Monday that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is “a worthy partner (who) can deliver the goods.”

He blamed the deadlock on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying he does not believe in negotiations.

Talks collapsed more than three years ago.

Netanyahu says he is ready to resume talks without preconditions. The Palestinians say they won’t negotiate while Israel continues building in areas they claim for a future state. Israel says that should be resolved through talks.

Peres said there is still a chance to strike a deal in the next few years.

It is not Abbas who controls Hamas. Any agreement without Hamas' leadership on board is totally meaningless. What planet are on Herr Peres?

Peres is still hurting because he was never elected as Prime Minister (just fell into the job when Rabin was killed and couldn't get elected subsequently). He can't get used to the fact that the president of the state is supposed to be apolitical--ie, stay out of politics (much in the same way as Queen Elisabeth in England)

And he's an old Mapainik which always was agains Herut/Likud.

In addition, there's no shoite like an old shoite.

Peres and Co. Are left wing anti-religion looks. They tried many times while THEY had the majority to "make peace" and failed. In fact every time they tried things got worse. Someone should tell Peres that he should put a sock in his mouth.

 Apr 23, 2012 at 12:38 PM He has to undermine Says:

Peres thinks that he was elected to head the knesset and make policy. He baldly undermines the legally elected Prime Minister and the country. He should ally himself with the Neturei Karta freaks who also endanger Jewish lives and security. Abba is a worthy partner!? Helloooo - Peres please get out of the presidential mansion - one a no'ef, now a boged - ridiculous

It's unheard of and shameful for a sitting president to publicly attack a sitting prime minister especially when all he brought to the table were the terrible terrible 'Oslo Accords'.

In what sense did we miss an opportunity- the Palestinians are requiring us to stop building before they talk - if we did that how are we supposed to handle the massive housing problem while the talk are continuing?

"HE WILL BE GIVEN A PEACE PRIZE FOR CONDEMNING ISRAEL"

Clearly you do not read the news, Dacon9.

Shimon Peres already has a Nobel Prize for Peace. It was awarded in 1994, just in case you were too busy SHOUTING even then.

Peres should be removed from the presidency to join Katsav in prison. Charge: TREASON.

Being President of Israel is like being the Queen of England. Its a ceremonial position with no power that is usually occupied by an elder statesman (stateswoman?) who is long out of touch with the facts on the ground.

Nobody - and I mean *nobody* ever received a "piece" prize (or even a piece of a prize), and clearly you will never receive the Nobel Prize for Literature either.

We all know much better sitting in our living/dining room in Brooklyn, what is good for Israel than their President. We are briefed daily by the Mossad, CIA and Mikveh Info Services

Maybe he meant a pizza prize. My son once won that in yeshiva - two slices and a soda for memorizing mishnayos.

Peres has gone way past his expiration date. There is a warm welcome awaiting him. The ovens of gehenim are heated up and the "welcome" mat is spread out to greet him.
