a Roberto Saviano, intervista a Che tempo che fa[data?]

„If world is suspicious that Israel may detonate nuclear bomb and if the suspicion is a deterrent — that's good enough.“

—  Shimon Peres

As quoted in "Peres: Suspicion over Israeli nukes is good deterrent", Ynetnews (1 September 2007) http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3444458,00.html

„The president of Iran should remember that Iran can also be wiped off the map.“

—  Shimon Peres

Remarks 8 May 2006, as quoted in "Iran can also be wiped off the map", in The Jerusalem Post (9 May 2006) http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=JPost/JPArticle/ShowFull&cid=1145961301962

„India represents the new world in a unique sense. Traditionally democracies were trying to bring equality to all walks of life, today there is a change. Democracy wants to enable every country to have the equal right to be different; it's a collection of differences, not an attempt to force or impose equality on every country. I think India is the greatest show of how so many differences in language, in sects can coexist facing great suffering and keeping full freedom… Many of the countries in the Middle East should learn from you how to escape poverty. You didn't escape poverty by getting American dollars or Russian Roubles but by introducing your own internal reforms and by understanding that the new call of modernity is science. In between the spiritual wealth of Gandhi and the earthly wisdom of Nehru, you combined a great performance of spirit and practice to escape poverty…I know you still have a long way to go but you do it without compromising freedom. The temptation when you're such a large country to introduce discipline and imposition is great but you tried to do it, to make progress not with force and discipline but in an open way. Many of us were educated on the literature of India when we fell in love we read Rabindranath Tagore and when we matured we tried to understand Gandhi.“

„I will confine myself to reaffirming the Israel will not be the first country to introduce nuclear weapons to the region.“

„Optimists and pessimists die the same way. They just live differently. I prefer to live as an optimist.“

—  Shimon Peres

As quoted in Serving "60 Years to Life", Newsweek Europe (12 December 2005)
