Peres posts peace song on lyrics Web site

There's a new songwriter in cyberspace: President Shimon Peres. And composers from countries including Iran are writing music for his song, "Ray of Hope." Aide Yoram Dori said Peres wrote the song a year ago. It's about peace, his favorite theme. Peres, who's 84, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994. Peres posted his lyrics on, a site that connects lyricists and composers. Among the dozens who wrote music was Sadri Ghandehari from Teheran, Iran. "Ray of Hope" includes the lines, "Provide my foe and friend a bloodless day. Invite boys and girls for peace to pray." Dori said Peres told him this shows that "music crosses borders, and it's an exceptional tool for good will among people."
