A Matter of Interpretation

Omri reacts to yesterday’s Quote of the Day:

We like Israellycool, but this is just unfair. Peres was mocking the press’s wailing about how no one in Israel had the international credibility to be President by pointing out that – more or less – they were idiots because he has massive credibility. That doesn’t mean that gaining international credibility is his goal. It means that, to the extent that helping Israel is his goal, he thinks that it’s important that Israelis know they have someone on their side who is welcome in the halls of European power.

We like Omri, and he is correct in that Peres’ statement in itself does not necessarily mean that gaining international credibility is his goal. But I would argue that it lends itself to this interpretation given Peres’ past demonstrations of egotistical behavior and penchant for self-aggrandisement.
