Peres to AIPAC: Israel born in defiance of history
Israel has been forced to exercise its right to defend itself through every decade of its existence, President Shimon Peres told the AIPAC Conference in Washington Sunday, noting that "no day of war ever interrupted a day of democracy."

Comparing the Jewish state to the United States, the president said Israel was born as an idea and in defiance of history, describing both countries as have created "a new world by drawing on the values of the past and the innovations of the future."
