Shimon Peres in his own words
'Many Palestinian children are being killed, almost no Israeli children are being killed. Why? Because we look after our children'
This is symptomatic of the racist and callous response of Shimon Peres to the deaths of over 300 children in the last two weeks. This is the man who King's have awarded for his 'efforts' for 'peace'. How can Palestinians protect their children against the bombs the IDF dropped onto Gaza? This sickening statement by Peres demonstrates the attitude to the plight of the Palestian people that the Israeli state espouses, and that King's College have little problem applauding.
If any other statesman said this, they would be condemned internationally.
Yet, instead of condemnation, there is largely silence.
King's College should be ashamed of awarding this man an honorary doctorate, and then defending its decision to do so.
