Israel’s 92-year old former president has sent his greetings to Her Majesty the Queen upon her 90th birthday.
In a video message, Peres said: “From my own experience I can tell you that in my judgment- life begins at the age of 90, and they go up better and better. It is really a blessing not just a wish, a blessing to you, to us, that you will continue to guide, to inspire, to offer a smile, to the young and the old and make our lives different, despite all the problems and wars we went through. You are a great leader for the free world; you are a great hope for the coming generations. God bless you.”
In his official note, the Ninth President added: “For nine decades the world has been graced by your reign. You are a beacon of light to your nation and serve as a source of inspiration for individuals across the world.”
Peres went on to say, “while birthdays are a time to reflect upon the past year, they are also a time to look to the future. You are a beacon of light to your nation and serve as a source of inspiration for individuals across the world”.
“Great Britain and the Commonwealth symbolize democracy, faith and harmony and it is your reign that has instilled and insured these values are preserved. Therefore, Your Majesty, I wish for you to continue dreaming, building your magnificent nation and carrying the British spirit.”
