Peres: Obama was right to support hungry people

President Shimon Peres on Monday said that US President Barack Obama was right to shift his support from corrupt rulers to hungry and thirsty peoples.
At a meeting of the Treasury Ministry's Budget Division, the president said that Israel must deal with what is happening around it. "We cannot be an island of wealth in a sea of poverty and fighting," he added.
Peres said that by attracting investment from global companies, Israel could aid the Middle East.
