Well, isn't this a headline to bring a bit of surprise. He even makes a fair bit of sense in his comments on the matter.


AFP - Israeli President Shimon Peres said Sunday he would be prepared to meet his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, even though their two countries consider each other arch-enemies.

Asked at an economic forum over a possible meeting, Peres replied: "Why not? I don't have enemies. It's not a question of personalities but of policies.

"The aim is to transform enemies into friends," said the president, whose role in Israel is symbolic and ceremonial.

With logic like that spreading, scary new things like Peace could break out. War could become rare, at least..and maybe we could get through a few years on this rock without scores of people dying because someone is mad at someone else over something, but send others to express it.

Many strange things have come to pass in the last 3-6 years. The world could stand to have one more. Perhaps this very forum could someday have it's title become a quaint statement to past concerns.

It all has to start with small steps somewhere, eh?

Hopefully nothing bad happens at this event, because everything could go critical then.

Edit: I hope they discuss some sort of lasting peace agreement. The world needs less war and more peace in the Middle East. The USA cannot afford more wars.

We van only hope of course.At least a small gesture beats threats.And speaking of threats unless an agreement is reached soon I'd watch for an Israeli red line...

Either this is a proxy in some bigger game that Israel is playing, a false flag of peace shall we say, or somebody really got to that guy and made him tone down his rhetoric.

Hooray perhaps at last we might get some common sense blossuming in the politicians of that area. However, with Israel in bed with the Saudis, I would be suspicious because I could not put my hand on my heart genuinely and say that Israel is not duplicity personified, but perhaps times are changing and even politicians are sick of the past's failures and want to try another way.

The peace in the ME will be achieved only when both parties try to see things from different prespectives...Israelis and Saudis have their hands fully involved in most of the conflicts in the region,and if they think they can continue the same trend and at the same time make an ally out of Iran,they are deeply mistaking.

What could be the worst that could happen if they meet and talk, Hassan Rouhani end up with polonium poisoning?
