Shimon Peres Reflects on War, Peace and Life (New York Times)

“I’ve been controversial for most of my life. Suddenly, I’ve become popular. I don’t know when I was wrong, then or now.” September 2007, Ha’aretz

“At my age, after looking back, if I feel that I have to make a choice between being experienced and cynical or being curious and innocent, I prefer the second. It is much more appealing.” May 2000, Jerusalem Post
“Most of our neighbors, who want to destroy us, believe that Israel has the capability to destroy them. Their suspicion is our strength.” November 2009, Yediot Ahronot
“There is no doubt that an Iran with nuclear weapons is a mortal danger. I also have no doubt that Israel has to view this matter with all seriousness and gravity. Iran is a danger to the entire world. It is currently as dangerous to America as it is to Israel, and that is a good union. We have often been alone.” August 2012, Mako
“Jewish history is devoid of any desire to rule over another people. I think that what is happening now is a deviation. All the people who ruled over us have been erased from the stage of history. We are the only ones who never ruled over anyone else, and we prevailed.” February 1988, Jerusalem Post
