Peres slams Ahmadinejad for feeding hate and destruction

President Shimon Peres lashed out against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday for sowing terror, hatred and destruction. Speaking to reporters at Beit Hanassi about anti-Israel statements made by Ahmadinejad to the UN Food Summit in Rome this week, Peres said: "The world is hungry, food is becoming scarce and millions are starving. The world is hungry for food not for poison, terror, hatred, fear and destruction. What is Ahmadinejad giving to the world other than terrorism and hatred? That's what he does every day." By contrast noted Peres, Israel, tiny in comparison to Iran, was one of the best agricultural producers in the world, providing solutions for food shortages and irrigation. "Unlike him [Ahmadinejad] we did not develop terror while the world became increasingly hungry... He comes with his demagoguery and capriciousness, but he has no message, so he has no future."
