An "Israeli" boy watches mixed Palestinian-"Israeli" teams play during a soccer match in Herzilya. The tournament is hosted by "The Peres Center for Peace", an oxymoron if there is any. Mr. Peres, in his address to the Knesset on the "Grapes of Wrath" said:
"'Grapes of Wrath' is an operation which has no time limit, but is explicit in its objectives. These objectives are to ensure a long period of quiet for the communities of the north, to stabilize the situation in southern Lebanon [by killing 100+ civilians, half of them children], and to halt the firing of Katyushas [by firing artillery shells], thereby enabling a resumption of the peace process. The operation relies on the use of sophisticated and precise weapons [very precise indeed]. It accords expression to the IDF's advantage in human [human quality? oh wow, how very non-supremacist of you] and technological quality [yes, I suppose that is true - after all you're the one that receives billions in military "aid", not Lebanon - and despite that, your arses got handed over to you by Hezballah. I guess they are of a superior human quality then?], in mobility, and intelligence, and in precise and accurate hits [yes, I can tell]."
