Israeli President Peres Addresses the European Parliament

(Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs) The President of the State of Israel, Shimon Peres, addressed the European Parliament on Tuesday: Peace for Israel is not just a strategic choice. It is a moral call which stems from the depth of our heritage. Our legacy calls upon us to pursue peace. Our hand remains stretched out in peace to all the countries in the Middle East. The greatest danger to peace in the world is the present Iranian regime. It became a dictatorship cloaked in a religious mantle. It developed an imperial appetite. Nobody threatens Iran. Iran threatens others. It endangers the independence of Arab countries. It menaces the mere existence of Israel. It smuggles arms into many countries in order to undermine their stability. A nuclear bomb in the hands of an irresponsible regime is an imminent danger to the world. Khamenei declared that religion prohibits the production and use of nuclear arms. Why then does he build missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads? A clear voice must be raised against the violation of human rights by the Iranian regime, against a regime that hangs people without bringing them to court, that throws journalists into prison without trial, that fires live bullets at civilian demonstrators. A moral voice will encourage the Iranian people in their fight for freedom, in their struggle against misery. Iran supports terrorism throughout the world. Its main proxy, Hizbullah, carries out terror attacks and threatens the stability of the entire region. Hizbullah is a terror organization, not a political movement. They collect missiles. They hide missiles in peaceful towns and villages, turning them into a war target. Hizbullah sends soldiers to support the massacre of a bloody dictator in Syria. Recently, 20 terror attempts by Hizbullah were counted all over the world, in India, Thailand, Georgia, South Africa, the USA, Egypt and Greece, among others. The international community must designate Hizbullah as a terrorist organization.
