Quote of the day:
"The two men are diametric opposites. Peres advocated openness and cooperation with the international community, while Netanyahu favors hunkering down behind the barricades and believes the entire world is against us.

Peres constantly took the initiative, while Netanyahu advocates a policy of 'sit still and do nothing.'"
