Peres: Burning of Israeli flag outside Beit Safafa school 'minority act'

President Shimon Peres visited a school in the Arab neighborhood of Beit Safafa in Jerusalem on Monday morning and said that the burning of an Israeli flag at the entrance to the school the previous night was "a minority act." He said his job as president was to encourage "the majority" to pursue peace and love Jerusalem. Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski said that the incident was a "criminal act" and the result of a rival gang feud.
