Israeli Vice Premier Shimon Peres is in Spain attending a soccer match between an Israeli team comprised of both Israeli and Palestinian soccer players and a Spanish team from Andalusia. According to the JPost, "proceeds from the match are to go toward financing schools next year in Palestinian territories in a project sponsored by the Andalusian regional government."

Peres also contested that "Hamas is an important force in the peace process and must play a role in it."

Peres expressed hope that the Palestinian groups Fatah and Hamas will resolve their differences so that they can both work together with Israel for peace in the Middle East.

I'm not sure how people in Sderot would respond to this stance, having witnessed first-hand the violence that erupted yesterday during an alleged cease-fire.
