Birthday Boy!

12 Tamuz 5773

We couldn't let the occasion pass without a comment. But then there's time since the actual birthday is not until August. All of the congratulations on reaching this milestone may become irrelevant if he doesn't make it to the 20th of Av. My guess is he is assuming he's going to live forever.

For me, Shimon Peres' birthday is not a cause for celebration. That day will come when he is gone from this world and no longer able to inflict so much harm on Am Yisrael.

Peres Criticized for 90th Birthday Extravaganza

There was much criticism in Israel on Wednesday of President Shimon Peres’s lavish 90th birthday celebration, which took place at the International Convention Center in Jerusalem the previous evening.

The extravaganza was attended by some 2,000 people, including Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, former U.S. President Bill Clinton, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, singer Barbra Streisand and actors Robert de Niro and Sharon Stone, to name a few. The event was broadcast live on Israel’s three main television networks as well as on the radio.

You should really read the article. Many of the critical comments are very amusing.
