Peres: Gaza radicalized Jewish voters, but don't despair
By JPOST.COM STAFF
President Shimon Peres on Friday urged the public not to despair over the election results.
"Unfortunately, what happened in Gaza radicalized Jewish voters a lot," he told members of the Naot Smadar kibbutz, in the Arava. "The effect of the rockets was felt at the polling stations, but we mustn't despair over it."
"I told party heads the the new coalition cannot be between parties only, but that an Israeli coalition is also between itself and the world."
