Not much to say. Caspian Makan is a grieving fiancé, nobody expects him to take into consideration the public relations impact of his moves. Shimon Peres is a professional politician, one of the most successful in Israel. Peres just made a breathtakingly stupid move in meeting Makan.
Israel is a tiny country. All of its positions of authority and decision-making are drawn from a small pool of competitors. It is possible to become prominent in Israeli politics without being particularly talented by world standards.
