The 'Peres Center for Peace' and the poritz syndrome

Like a good galuth (exile) Jew who fears what the poritz will think, Shimon Peres and his 'Peres Center for Peace' are ashamed to tell the world that Israel is the national home of the Jews (Hat Tip: Shy Guy).
The Peres Center has decided not to enter the presentation of “Snowball” to the itinerary of the Barcelona team while they are visiting Israel, after it was deemed to contain the message that “The State of Israel is the national home of all Jews”,  according to a report in “Israel Today”.
The story began in April of this year, during a new presentation at a children’s festival in Haifa. 
It is based on an original play, and sets the story of a boy – Felipe – a new immigrant from Argentina, and an avid fan of Barcelona football star, Lionel Messi. After learning that the Barcelona team was going to visit the country, the artistic director turned to the Peres Center for Peace, suggesting the presentation be integrated into the team’s forthcoming visit.
According to the report in “Israel Hayom”, the Peres Center at first responded quite enthusiastically.  And then an e-mail from Dvir Zivan, Director of the Sports Dept. for the Peres Center, was sent out, wherein he indicated that it was inappropriate.  In essence, he stated that it was politically incorrect to expose Palestinian Arab children to a play that says Israel is a “Jewish State”.  And so, plans for the presentation have been cancelled.
Shimon Peres is a disgrace to the State of Israel. I have no other words.
