Shimon Peres still seeking spiritual solution to terrorism and Middle East conflict

In, June 2014, just prior to the conclusion of his tenure as president, Shimon Peres flew to Rome where he joined Pope Francis and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in a united prayer service for peace. At the completion of the service, the Pope urged both leaders to act with courage and to do their utmost to achieve peace in the Middle East.

Last week, Peres traveled not to Rome but to Paris on a similar quest – but this time Abbas was not part of the endeavor, nor was the Pope. Peres was more intent on speaking to the spiritual leaders of the Jewish and Muslim communities of France.
