Roskam Statement on the Passing of Shimon Peres z"l


Location: Washington, DC

.S. Representative Peter J. Roskam released the following statement on the passing of Israeli statesman Shimon Peres z"l:

"Shimon Peres was a true Israeli hero and a source of great inspiration to me personally. He defended the Jewish people with an iron fist while relentlessly seeking peace and extending an open hand to Israel's neighbors.

"He chose not to be a cynic, famously "preferr[ing] to live as an optimist' because "optimists and pessimists die the same way, they just live differently.' Shimon Peres did more with his time on Earth than most people could accomplish in 3 or 4 lifetimes.

"May his memory be a blessing for the world to come. We mourn with the Peres family and the entire nation of Israel."
