US President Barack Obama has awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Israeli President Shimon Peres, the man who has overseen the killing of Palestinian women and children by Israeli forces in the occupied territories for decades.
Obama awarded the 88-year-old Israeli president the highest civilian honor in the United States during a dinner ceremony in the White House on Wednesday.
“No individual has done so much over so many years to build our alliance… as the leader we honor tonight -- our friend, Shimon Peres,” Obama said during the event, which also hosted former US President Bill Clinton.
Obama also stated that the “bonds” between the United States and Israel are “unbreakable” and “non-negotiable.”
That's how these criminals act. Give each other peace awards like it masks their acts of inhumanity.
A true measure of a man's character is his willingness to speak the truth - even at the expense of his reputation.
A hallmark of self-deceiving cowards is their acceptance of authority as their truth, rather than the truth as their authority.
