Israeli President Shimon Peres has denied calling the British anti-Semites.
Shimon Peres (86) had caused a storm in England after accusing the British establishment of being “deeply pro-Arab” and “anti-Israeli.”
But the very next day Peres regretted.
The Telegraph of London writes: ” The president does not believe that British governments are motivated by anti-Semitism, nor were they in the past.”
That is quite a flip flop.
It might be relevant to mention that Peres on November 20th 2008 received an honorary knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II. Its not nice to first accept to be knighted by the Queen, and than attack her subjects in the Kingdom, and in partikulare other knighted British leaders.
The Pope in Rome and the Queen of England are heads of two different Churches. And by birth or knighthood, they make people come into submission to their authority. The hunger for fame caught up with Shimon Peres. Now he serves two masters, and got caught.
What kind of knighthood was it Shimon Peres accepted?
The appointment made Peres a Knight Commander in the Order of St. Michael and St. George. This is a title usually reserved for British colonial affairs officials, foreign-service officers and high-ranking diplomats in Commonwealth countries.
However, the Queen has on numerous occasions appointed foreigners to the Order. Among some of the more famous are Bill Gates and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
When Peres was knighted, there was no mentioning of the British people being anti-Israel. To the radical opposite, Peres praised the friendship between the two countries.
This is what Ynetnews.com and other media reported Peres saying during his visit to Buckingham Palace.
“I believe that the British leadership is very amiable towards Israel,” said Peres with the culmination of the ceremony, adding that he sees the honor bestowed upon him as a testament to the friendship between the two countries.
“The knighthood was a public declaration of support. This is the first time an Israeli figure has been knighted, it was without a doubt a gesture of friendship.”
I have never paid to much attention to how people shake hands. But as Shimon Peres shake hands with Britain’s Prince Charles, at Clarence House in London November 20, 2008.Peres uses the firm Masonic grip.
You can also take a look at the video from the event at the Buckingham Palace.
What kind of knighthood did Shimon Peres accept?
The star bears a red cross of St George. In the center of the star is a dark blue ring bearing the motto of the Order. Within the ring is a representation of St Michael trampling on Satan.
Funny. Its nothing about such an event in the Bible.
Still, Since 1906, the Order’s chapel has been in St Paul’s Cathedral in London. (The Cathedral also serves as home to the chapels of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire and The Imperial Society of Knights Bachelor.)
