But first, let's go to the videotape.
Yes, that's the entry hallway to the synagogue, right outside the study hall where last Tuesday's terror attack took place. But Peres apparently made his statement while visiting the mourners.
"My grandfather, Tzvi Meltzer, was murdered in a synagogue by Nazis as he was wrapped in a prayer shawl just for being a Jew," related Peres. "Today too, our people are united under faith against all murder and terror. The memory of your loved ones will be blessed."Peres was accompanied by Rabbi David Yosef, Sheikh Kablan of the Israeli Druze community, Ali Saeed of the Bedouin community and Abu Ghosh mayor Salim Jaber.
