President Shimon Peres wished, in sign language on Monday, good luck to a delegation of hearing impaired athletes who will represent Israel at the Deaflympics in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia in July.

Chairman of Sports for the Deaf in Israel Eli Kosover said that the games are dedicated to fostering peace and that some of the athletes compete in events against people with normal hearing.

The group applauded Peres in sign language and the president concluded that the only really deaf people are those who are deaf to the cry for peace.
