Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Shimon Peres today called for a global information offensive against the phenomenon of suicide bombers, during a meeting with an American delegation from the Anti-Defamation League.

Peres stated that religious Islamic clerics are brainwashing GushchinPalestinian youth, indoctrinating them with lies, and promising them that they will go straight to paradise if they blow themselves up and kill Israelis.

Peres added that these Islamic clerics should stop sending youngsters to their deaths. If such religious leaders really believe that paradise can be attained through suicide bombings, they should do their own dirty work themselves in their own backyards, instead of brainwashing youth to do it for them.
