Colette Avital, a former Labor member of Knesset and a former Israeli consul-general to New York, alleged that the late president Shimon Peres sexually assaulted her twice in the 1980s, including one time when he was prime minister.This is definitely horrific, though not particularly shocking, that a man notorious for his role in the Oslo accords could do something incredibly nasty to a woman, not unlike former movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who's now in prison for his crimes. And it's not going to improve Peres' image in retrospect. All this does is symbolize the tragedy of having only so many terrible leftist men in politics who're using their immunity to get away with vile crimes. Now, it looks like another example's been discovered of one in Israel who exploited his positions to potentially take advantage of more than one woman, and we could be hearing more allegations soon enough. And all this happened because the leftist MSM does all they can to protect them while they're in office, and only throws them under the bus long after they're gone.
In an interview in the Haaretz newspaper published Thursday, Avital said she was summoned to Peres’s office, while he was serving as prime minister in 1984. The pair discussed potential jobs she could hold in his administration after her return as a diplomat stationed in Paris.
As she got up to leave, Avital told Haaretz, “he pressed me against the door suddenly and tried to kiss me.” Avital said she pushed him away and left the room, “and my legs were shaking when I left there, it repulsed me.”
The former MK, who worked closely with Peres for many years afterward, said however that for two years following the incident she avoided seeing him.
Avital also alleged that Peres had sexually assaulted her several years before when he was visiting Paris, where she served as a senior diplomat.
According to Avital, she was invited to have breakfast with Peres at the hotel where he was staying. When she arrived, however, she was told they would meet in his room for “security reasons.”
Avital said that as she entered the hotel room, Peres was waiting “in pajamas” and shoved her toward the bed, but she resisted and left.
“It took a few seconds,” she said.
Avital said she told the Labor party’s then-spokesman, Yossi Beilin, who was in the adjacent room.
“The next time Peres arrives in Paris I’m not remaining alone with him. You’ll be with me,” she said she told Beilin.
Avital also said Beilin was not shocked when she told him.
“He responded with a poker face. He understood,” she said.

Some very disturbing accusations have come out against the late left-wing Israeli politician Shimon Peres, made by former Knesset member Colette Avital:

This terrible incident, which took place a few days ago, is an example of the sickness of an Islamic-led regime:
Police arrested four suspects over the weekend after several officers were assaulted early Friday by private security guards working for the central town of Kafr Qasim. Government and police leaders expressed outrage at the attack on law enforcement officials in the Arab Israeli town.This is telling quite a bit too, when an Islamic MK is involved in forming a group that commits a violent crime, as the group in this incident did. Those arrested should be absolutely ashamed of themselves and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Most importantly though, they have to wean themselves off of the Religion of Peace, which tragically influenced them for the worse, making them into something not all that different from Islamic morality police (mutawas).
The officers had sought to enter the town’s municipality after receiving a report that someone had been violently taken into the building, but were denied entry by the guards. A scuffle broke out and several cops were beaten and bloodied.
Hebrew media reported on Saturday that the guards were part of an organization hired by local leaders to maintain order in the town amid the epidemic of violent crime in the Arab community. According to Channel 13 news, MK Walid Taha of the coalition’s Ra’am party had himself been involved in forming the group. Taha did not comment.
