We must break free of prejudice, Peres tells Power

US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power meets with former president Shimon Peres.

“Hope is not limited to one field or a place,” Peres tells Power. “The problem is that we are unable to break free of the habits, prejudices, and hatred of the past. Until we are able to break away from them, the many possibilities and courses of action are not open before us.”

Power on Monday met with Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin.
