Israel Matzav could not have said it better:
There was much that Peres did in his later years with which I disagreed. Oslo (which was done behind Yitzchak Rabin’s back). His treatment of Jonathan Pollard. His playing fast and easy with Jewish lives to achieve his goals. His undercutting of Begin on the Osirak attack. In fact, his undercutting of Israeli governments generally in his later years, including during his term as President (a position he turned from an honorary position into a political one). And he was reviled by many in Israel.

Jerusalem Cats Comment: Everything is for the Good, Whether we realize it or not, both the Good and what looks like the Bad.
