At the state ceremony in Jerusalem to mark the start of Remembrance Day, President Shimon Peres spoke about Israel's desire for peace.

"We didn't seek war.  It was imposed upon us.  But when we were attacked, we didn't have the possibility to loose, even one war.  And when we won, we returned to seek peace," Peres said. "We were sober then and we remained prepared today.  And in any situation we will not give up the chance of full peace, real peace.  And if one opportunity fails, we will look for a new one," the president added.

He also addressed protests in the Middle East saying "in our region today we are hearing the Arab voice that calls for liberation from the yoke of oppression.  For democracy in the region.  We wish them well in their efforts."
