Speaking at a special Memorial Day ceremony at the Western Wall in Jerusalem on Sunday, President Shimon Peres lamented Israel’s history of war, saying today “Israel is as strong as ever.””We didn’t seek war. It was imposed upon us. But when we were attacked, we didn’t have the possibility to loose even one war. And when we won, we returned to seek peace,” the president said.
