President Shimon Peres said that Israel cannot survive without the help of the United States. He spoke at Jerusalem conference of the Jewish People Policy Planning Institute on Thursday.
President says Israel can enable US to build an anti-Iran coalition by ending “secondary conflict” with Palestinians; “We cannot give back to the US what they give us, but in our own small way, we can be of help.”
Peres said that, “for our existence, we need the friendship of the United States of America.”
Speaking of how Israel can give back to the US, he said that just “as the US is trying to understand the security needs of Israel, we Israelis ourselves must understand the security needs of the US.” He continued, “We cannot give back to the United States what the US is giving us, but in our own small way, we can be of help.”
Connecting two of the largest issues on the Israeli – and American – agenda, the president said Israel could be of help to the US by enabling an “anti-Iran coalition in the Middle East, and the contribution will not be by declaration, but if we stop the secondary conflict between us and the Palestinians,” in order to allow the US to focus on the Iranian threat.

Shimon Perez is a secular Jew. He has no conviction in his heart that Israel only needs the protection given by God of Israel.
To say that Israel can not exist without the help of the US, i like saying that the formation of the state of Israel has no Biblical significance.
Perez also confirms anti-Zionist sentiments, saying that Israel is the lesser Satan, and America the greater Satan. And the little one is just a puppet of the greater.
The third issue, is that Peres wants the Jewish people to listen to and obey the Obama Administration. Because Uncle Sam is the grand daddy of Israel, the Jewish statehood can only survive because of help from a rich uncle in Washington. And Israel need to do what Uncle Sam demands.
Should all Jews delete God of Israel as the only protector of Israel, there will be no future for the Jewish statehood. Today, Jewish Zionist, setters in East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria are the proclaimers of the living God of Israel. They believe in the eternal promises given to the Jewish people, that God will stay faithful to His Words. Together with Messianic Jews, they are waiting for the Messiah.
The Messianics will correctly claim that Messiah Jesus has already come once. Many religious Jews keep this an open issue. But they both are waiting. And surely He will come back and save Israel. Amen.
