Peres: Lebanon election results don't change the facts

President Shimon Peres said, "US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's announcement that a nuclear attack from Iran would be met with an appropriate response from the US, proves, once again, the damage that the Iranian President Ahmadinejad is causing his people."


The president also commented on the elections in Lebanon, saying, "The results do not change the fact that Hizbullah remains a state within a state, an army within an army, and prevents Lebanon's economic recovery." (Roni Sofer)
