Former Israeli President Shimon Peres demonized on official PA TV on the day of his death


PA TV's Israeli affairs expert Fayez Abbas:
"Shimon Peres, 93, from Belarus, immigrated to Palestine at the age of 11. Of course, it is known that Shimon Peres is the spiritual father of the Israeli settlement in the West Bank, and he is also the spiritual father of the Israeli atomic bomb, which he succeeded in bringing or buying from France. He is also the spiritual father of all the wars against Arab states because he participated in all the wars, and [in] the last war that he participated in he was responsible for the Kafr Qana massacre in Lebanon, when he bombed a school in which women and children hid, in the war against Lebanon (referring to shelling of a UN facility in response to Hezbollah fire from the site in April 1996, during Operation Grapes of Wrath -Ed.). Of course if we look at the history of Shimon Peres, I am convinced that he is the one who established the State of Israel, and he is the one who led Israel to [become] a formidable military power. When he began to speak about peace, I believe he was deceiving the world. In other words, when Shimon Peres focused [in speech] on the issue of peace, this meant that war was coming. He essentially succeeded in convincing the world about Israel's point of view, even though it occupies and kills - the crimes he committed in Lebanon could have led him to the International Criminal Court, but the entire world forgave Shimon Peres-"
Official PA TV host of Palestine This Morning: "And he received the prize-"
Fayez Abbas: "The Nobel Peace [Prize], together with Martyr (Shahid) President Yasser Arafat and [then Israeli Prime Minister] Yitzhak Rabin."
[...]
PA TV host: "The Israeli press talked about Peres' long life and said that exercise, eating little, and drinking wine were the reasons for-"
Fayez Abbas: "He would drink whiskey, he and Rabin loved whiskey. But Shimon Peres did for Israel what no one did, nor will do. The greatest fraud in the history of the Zionist movement, Shimon Peres. He is a man that the world undoubtedly loves, even the Arab states believed that Peres was a man of peace, even though he was the greatest man of war in Israel, more than [former Israeli Prime Minister] Menachem Begin and even more than [former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon."
