- I did not target at all in any way the Israeli people, President Peres or Jewish people.

- To the contrary both during the panel I attended in lunch and tonight, I specificaly stressed that anti-Semitism is a crime against humanity.

- In the panel in the evening Ban ki-Moon spoke fore 15 minutes, I spoke for 12 minutes and Mr. Amr Moussa cut his speech short when it reached to 12 minutes.

- On the other hand President Peres spoke for 25 minutes and during the speech he turned and speak at me at a manner that we don't see in Davos.

- And president Peres raised his voice time to time.

- When I intervened to take the floor the moderator did not allow me to do. And I showed reaction to the moderator and left the meeting.

- I wanted to express these thoughts so that there would be no misunderstanding.

- We will talk about this with Mr. Schwab. My reaction here was towards the moderator. Such moderation will cast a shadow over peace efforts.

- I have respect for Mr. Peres therefore I did not raise my voice. Otherwise I would have raised my voice. He doesn't speak truth. History and political science deny him.
