Peres slams Israeli critics of Obama: It wouldn’t hurt us to say thank you

Former president Shimon Peres on Thursday criticized those in Israel who question the friendship of US President Barack Obama, suggesting that they were ungrateful.

Peres’s comments came a day after the US handed over to Israel its new F-35 fighter jets in a ceremony in Fort Worth, Texas attended by Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman.

"Yesterday was a very important day in the history of Israel," Peres stated. "The United States handed over to us one of the best planes in the world. The F-35, which will add great power to our air force."
