Israel president sends message of peace to Iran

The president of Israel has delivered a message of peace to the Iranian people, while denouncing the Tehran government, International Business Times reports. The gesture by Shimon Peres comes as relations between Iran and the West and Israel are at an all-time low amidst sanctions and threats of attack in retaliation for Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons program. Peres expressed his words of reconciliation while addressing the Israeli Parliament on Wednesday, on the 63rd anniversary of the Knesset’s founding. “We were not born enemies and there is no need for us to live as enemies,” Peres said. “Do not allow the flags of hostility to cast a dark shadow on your historic heritage. Your people are a sensitive people who aspire for friendship and peace, and not for conflict and wars.”
