Shimon Peres (At 90) On Israel At 65

 

Israel's elder statesmen gave a great interview this week with David Horovitz at the Times of Israel, as the Jewish State celebrates it's 65th Birthday.  

Funny, articulate, and insightful, President Peres says that the only thing permanent in the world is disatisfaction:

"Today you live 80 years. Two hundred years ago, you lived 40. What you have today, a king didn’t have. When a king had a toothache he was crying like a baby. He didn’t have running water or a telephone. But the more we have, the more we want. Dissatisfaction: that is permanent."
