In an interview with the New York Times, Israeli President Shimon Peres expressed confidence that President Obama would eventually attack Iran, and that economic sanctions and negotiations were just a prelude to such a move.
“If none of this works, then President Obama will use military power against Iran. I am sure of it,” Peres insisted, saying that the Americans simply “don’t begin by shooting” when they are on the path to a war.
Peres went on to downplay reports of a rift between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying that it is simply a matter of convincing Obama that Israel is sincere in supporting a peace deal with the Palestinians.
“Of course, he’s not convinced,” Peres added, and such convincing may be extremely difficult to accomplish with so many politicians on the Israeli far-right running on explicit opposition to Palestinian peace, and looking to gain considerable seats in this month’s election with those positions.

Isen't it galling that ALL Isreali Politicians are convinced that Americans are so gutless that they will do anything that their Isreali Masters dictate?
I know the American Lawmakers are toadies of the Isreali's BUT SURELY NOT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
C'mon people start writing to you representatives and ask them to represent YOU and NOT ISREAL.
Go have intercourse with yourself s#$@mon.
Or better yet he could just die already. I love the way the American MSM whores try and paint this vampire as some kind of moderate compared to B. Netty Tinpot.
This ancient fool isn't even sure of his next bowel movement.
Oh, yeah, sure, we'll fight your war for you. We'll spend another three or four trillion dollars and send a few more tens of thousands of young Americans to get shot or blown up on your behalf. Against a country that's not even a notional threat to us.
And we'll continue to pay for your free and universal health care inside Israel, which you have and we can't afford, anyway. That's just the kind of patsies we are.
Nice that you're so willing to fight to the last American.
Should be run out of the country.
Why does Antiwar.com accept this kind of abusive language ? The sad thing is that Israel has bought Congress with the 3 bio + Dollars yearly as aid to a "poor country". US of Israel are the real terrorists.
He wants obama to join the ranks of war criminals himself included.
Peres resembles an older version of the Dracula character in the movie, "Bram Stoker's Dracula". He just needs longer fingernails.
If the president of Israel believes that Iran is a danger to Israel one would think that he would be directing his military forces to develop a battle plan. Depending on the sheep which the USA has become could fail. The sheep might just not see it in their interest to kill thousands and cripple tens of thousands. I sure hope that the President of Israel stops pushing us to attack a member of the United Nations. If you do not want to follow the policies of the United Nations then please leave Israel. The United Nations is the body to settle this matter not the campaign money in the USA.
Oh, thank you Mr. President, WE people on this planet dont want anything else, then wars of asggression against anybody refusing Israels/US dictate!! We all love Zionist Israel like Cancerous Tumor and we hope that one day mankind will be free from Zionist lies, false flags, wars of aggression, destruction,rasism ….
We all hope, that this truly embarising and tragig mistake of UN – establishment of place called Israel-will be only terribly horrible mightmare for Humanity and future generations.
And please, dont forget launch you illegal WMD when you start your last war, because Iranian maybe know how to build them. Please, give us another massacre like Sabra, Shatila, Gaza08, Lebanon 06 and make it bigger please!!! and dont forget later investigate yourself!!!!! if your people in uniform did not commit any crimes against humanity…
Give us all usual lessons about antisemitism, Holocaust /usual crap/….
God is love , God is Israel, God is israels endless crimes against humanity….nothing else to ad. We, people of the World know that PILES OF SLOTERED PEOPLE REPRESENT ISRAEL nad its God. But not God from Bible, but unknown one from maybe Satanic Bible??? peter czech
He is going after what Obama said to Putin in 2012.., "I will have more flexibility after election".., and we said.., he will start another war in Africa or Asia starting with Iran.
The only way to deal with this lizard is what the turkish prime minister did to him a couple of years back, I wonder why americans still give these war criminals an opportunity to speak and manipulate them.
Jams when it comes to Turkish government.., they are the same shiiiiiiittttttt with a difference name.., is just that the Turkish government not ruling Israel or for that matter ruling the Palestinians territory, otherwise they all kissing the asses of Saudis thanking them for what they have done to Middle East giving the Turkish government opportunity what and who they are.
Does good cop bad cop come to mind with this filthy pig Peres?
This man has never been elected, has done nothing useful in his life, but is moved by israelis for his lack of charisma.
"Israel is sincere in supporting a peace deal with the Palestinians." and God wants Israel to rule the world.
One must not forget that Israel's nuclear weapons program was first developed under his watch when he was the Defense Minister, so when he raises the spectre of Iranian nuclear "capability", he should be called on it.
We need to take the words of Shimon Peres seriously. After all he was the politician that worked with the apartheid government of South Africa on their nuclear weapons program. He was also the Israeli minister who instigated the illegal settlement program in the Occupied Territories that today is the greatest threat to peace in the Middle East. This is a man to whom peace is anathema.
