Indy’s Robert Fisk smears Shimon Peres as a man of ‘blood and slaughter’.

The headline of the Sept. 28th piece, “Shimon Peres was no peacemaker. I’ll never forget the sight of pouring blood and burning bodies at Qana”, says it all. Don’t remember Peres, Fisk is saying, as a statesman who held every major government position during his career, or a Nobel Peace Prize Winner for his efforts to reach an agreement with the Palestinians. Rather, he suggests, the thought of Peres should rightly evoke memories of tortured humanity inflicted by Israel’s cruel machines of war – a legacy of “blood, fire and slaughter”.
