Repayment


Sir, - Although it is rather unseemly for the President to give his hechsher to an individual seeking to return to political life, Pres. Peres nevertheless chooses to do so for the problematic Aryeh Deri.

Is this endorsement a way of repaying Deri for his collaboration with Peres for bringing in the then new Shas party to vote for the controversial Oslo agreement?
