Shimon Peres has unwittingly revealed the secret weapons of Israel, Zionism and the international Jewish conspiracy. He said:
Israel should run ahead. We will overcome the Iranians and all other threats."
The secret weapon is optimism - often in the face of insuperable odds. That, coupled with keeping a cool head and hard work, can often do wonders. It is what makes for Brave Zionism.

President Shimon Peres on Friday said the global financial crisis will seriously damage the Iranian economy, saying "the recent drop in global oil prices is a serious blow for Iran."
Sitting under the sukkah of Sephardic Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar, the president further predicted that Tehran "won't be able to bear the increased spending in military and to continue its nuclear armament all at the same time."
If oil prices continue to fall, Peres said, Iran will not be able to fund terrorist activities.
He added that Israel should become a central player in the field of alternative energy, saying "Israel should run ahead. We will overcome the Iranians and all other threats."
