Peres: No Power Stronger than the Power of Faith


President Shim'on Peres visited the Atzmona pre-military academy in southern Israel on Monday. He told the 220 students in attendance, "There is no more power stronger than the power of faith. The state is composed of three foundations: the Ten Commandments, opinion and creativity, and the pursuit of peace."

Atzmona was one of the Jewish communities in Gaza which was uprooted by the government in the Disengagement program of the summer of 2005.
