Shimon Peres leaves a legacy of Death, Destruction and Apartheid

The legacy that Shimon Peres, who died earlier today, as leader of the Zionist Israeli regime, is one of collaboration with the White Apartheid South African (SA) regime, colonisation of Palestine, development of weapons of mass destruction, and the massacre of innocent civilians, especially the Qana massacre in South Lebanon.

The Media Review Network recalls that Peres was instrumental in creating an alliance that helped keep the Apartheid SA regime afloat while the rest of the world was increasingly turning against it in revulsion at its racist policies.

In November 1974, following a secret visit to Pretoria, Peres emphasized  that “this cooperation is based not only on common interests and on the determination to resist equally our enemies (Palestinians and Africans),  but also on the unshakeable foundations of our common hatred of injustice and our refusal to submit to it.”

Peres also orchestrated a red-carpet welcome to SA Prime Minister John Vorster in 1976, the year famous for the Soweto student uprising. It was Israeli weapons and advisers that were used to subdue the courageous anti-Apartheid resistance, thus prolonging the suffering of our people fighting against these crimes against humanity.

Israel also facilitated a $100 million propaganda campaign to rehabilitate Apartheid South Africa’s image internationally. Apart from co-operation in the manufacture of nuclear weapons, the two pariah entities trained together to fight against the ANC and PLO.

Peres played a pivotal role in the Haganah, the Israeli terrorist group and forerunner to the Israeli Defence Force, which was responsible for ethnically cleansing 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and the destruction of over 500 Palestinian villages.

In 1996, when Peres was the PM, Israel bombed a UN compound in the village of Qana that sheltered civilians killing and injuring hundreds of innocent women and children.

As the international community reflects on the life of Shimon Peres, the MRN remembers his innocent victims that suffered, and continue to suffer, as Israel, the last Apartheid outpost in the world, buries him.
