Shimon Peres's pre-mortem revelation: I stopped an Israeli attack on Iran

Peres: I stopped Netanyahu from attacking Iran.

Me: Can you tell us more?

Peres: I don’t want to go into details, but I can tell you that he was ready to launch an attack and I stopped him. I told him the consequences would be catastrophic.

“Can we report this?” I asked.

“When I’m dead,” Peres replied, with a wry smile.
