Former President Peres to Sarkozy: Boycott is act of hate, not peace

Former president Shimon Peres met with Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy on Monday and criticized the BDS movement against Israel.

"Israel needs peace negotiations," Peres said during the private event, "rather than boycotts, which only represent hate."

"I am glad you have come to Israel at such a critical time, Peres said, "when the country is dealing with important challenges." Jerusalem protested to the Élysée Palace after France-based Orange SA CEO Stéphane Richard expressed his desire to sever his company’s ties with Israel.
