Shimon Peres (born Szymon Perski; 2 August 1923 – 28 September 2016) was an Israeli politician who was the President of Israel (2007–2014), the Prime Minister of Israel (twice), and the Interim Prime Minister, in the 1970s to the 1990s.

Controversies include his role in the 1956 Suez Crisis and being the architect of Israel's secret nuclear weapons program in the 1960s, regarding which there are many alleged associated conspiracies and crimes, one example being the John F. Kennedy assassination.

In 1994, he won the Nobel Peace Prize together with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat.
