President Shimon Peres on Saturday night, the last night of the Jewish year 5772, sent New Year's greetings to the nation with best wishes for peace and security, stability and growth.

Disturbed by recent outbreaks of racial and religious discrimination, Peres declared that there is no room for racism or violence of any kind in the country, and condemned all forms of extremism and discrimination based on race, religion or political affiliation.

"Israel is a pluralistic society of many shades, a society of Jews, Christians, Muslim Arabs, Beduin, Druse and Circassians who live together in coexistence. All incidents of discrimination must be dealt with by the legal authorities," Peres stated. "Greater emphasis must be placed on education towards tolerance and equality."
