Vice Premier Shimon Peres discussed the situation in the Middle East with incoming UN Secretary Genral Ban ki-Moon in New York Friday night, Army Radio reported. Following the meeting, Peres told reporters that "the Muslims and Palestinians were presenting a one-sided and skewed picture, and if the situation persisted the UN's influence in the region would be weakened. Peres used Israel's offensive in the Gaza town of Beit Hanun as an example, saying that the UN committee charged with investigating alleged Israeli human rights offenses there should first check Palestinian aggression and not Israel's response to it.
