Lech Walensa, the first democratically elected president of Poland, who is currently visiting Israel, met on Sunday with President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, and came away from both meetings firmly convinced that both presidents have a sincere desire for peace. What is missing, Walensa told a group of Israeli businessmen in Tel Aviv on Sunday night, is stimulus and motivation.

Walensa envisaged the day when all of Europe would become a federation like the United States of America.
