Gandhi's grandson and Gaza
Here is a new one. Imagine Arafat,
“Chairman of Terror” and mastermind of murder and mayhem giving up
his evil ways by renouncing his campaign of ethnic genocide
cleansing, hatred, incitement, terrorism and violence. Imagine
Arafat sitting down in a peaceful unarmed struggle. Maybe he’ll even
show us he can go on a hunger strike rather than brainwashing
children to murder innocent human beings as well as themselves.
Maybe the lies and propaganda will end. Maybe. Let’s see Arafat
smoke a peace pipe.
Gandhi’s grandson advocates an Arab “Palestinian” peaceful campaign.
The grandson of former Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi, Arun Gandhi, is
to kick off an Arab “Palestinian” campaign for an unarmed, popular
struggle against the Israeli so-called “occupation” of its ancient
biblical and modern “disputed territories” of Gaza, Judea and
Samaria (wrongly called “West Bank” by most of the world today).
The campaign is being organized by a group of Arab “Palestinian”
social and political activists in Ramallah, that was formed after a
ruling of the International Court of Justice in The Hague against
the security barrier and separation fence against terrorism. The
group's members are anti-fence activists, members of non-government
organizations for water and agriculture development, and central
Fatah activists, headed by minister without portfolio and Fatah
activist Kadura Fares.
Gandhi, head of the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence in the
United States, will be the star speaker in three mass rallies
planned in Ramallah, Abu Dis and Bethlehem on August 26. Gandhi said
he intends "to promote the philosophy of nonviolence, the approach
that nonviolence is the only venue that can solve our problems."
The Ramallah group resumed it ties with the misguided, misinformed,
misnamed “Palestinians for Peace and Democracy” in the U.S., and
reportedly consists of 400 volunteers. The group's leader, Mohammed
Al Atar, said they felt "an urgency to find another way to resist
The link between Al Atar and the Ramallah group was Terry Boulata of
East Jerusalem, the principal of a private school in Abu Dis and a
major anti-fence activist. The fence separates her home from her
place of work and from her husband's family. Boulata said the Hague
decision and Israel's High Court ruling to change the fence route
strengthens the position of the proponents of an unarmed struggle.
Like Al Atar, she said: "The struggle is our right, but we must be
Creative? How about creating an end to the terrorism that
necessitated the security barrier and separation barrier in the
first place? How about creating an end to all the lies, myths, and
perpetual political propaganda ploys such as the deceitful and
fraudulent Arab “Palestine” nation and “Palestinian” people? No one
is more creative than an Arab/Islamist.
The two then invited Gandhi in order to learn creative ways of
fighting against the alleged so –called “occupation” by Israel which
in reality and truth is an “occupation” by the Arab League of its
own brethren and cousins with Arafat and his “Palestinian Authority”
as the instrument of occupation.
In a telephone call from the United States, Gandhi said he is coming
both to learn and to teach his philosophy. "I understand that many
bad things happened 55 years ago, but the attempt to get justice by
revenge accomplishes nothing," he said. He said he learned that from
his grandfather when he was just a boy, and thought of revenge in
retaliation to the apartheid and humiliation he felt in South
Africa, where he was born in 1934. Gandhi said his father spent 15
years in jail because he refused to obey the apartheid laws.
Clearly Gandhi has a lot to learn and a lot to teach. Only the Arabs
can be blamed for creation of their own problems. If one ones to
admit the facts and historical truth. Gandhi may want to learn a
little history before he teaches others in the interest in accuracy,
honesty, and morality.
One can not compare or equate apartheid of the blacks with Zionism
or Jews “right of return” to their ancient biblical G-d given “Holy
Land” or “Promised Land” because the almighty is the only one that
will never ever break a promise. His covenant, documented in the
best selling book, the bible, is an eternal one.
One will also point out that it was the Jews of South Africa that
were instrumental to change the apartheid conditions of the blacks
just as they marched in America with Martin Luther King who wisely
pointed out that there is no difference between anti-Semitism and
anti-Zionism. The world should heed the wisdom of the late great
Martin Luther King.
It is difficult to tell how the Arab “Palestinians” will relate to
Gandhi's tendency to explain violent conflicts by reducing them to
private, inter-personal relations.
Another vehicle for the Arab League myths and perpetuation of the
political propaganda ploy of an independent Arab “Palestine” nation
and “Palestinian” people? You betcha. You can always count on
Arab/Islamist lies, myths, and propaganda.
It is one of their best accomplishments and most successful. In
addition to a bloody campaign of hatred, incitement, terrorism and
violence with mass murder and mayhem on the mind.
"I've dedicated my life to explain to people how damaging prejudices
can be, and how to form better relations. That is the basis of
non-violence. Relations must be based on love, understanding and
honor, not on negative foundations," Gandhi stated.
"I will tell the Palestinians that it is their responsibility to
change. If the Israelis do not want to listen, it does not mean we
Gandhi is right. The Arab “Palestinians” need to change and it is
their responsibility. The sooner the better if they want to join
civilization and the rest of the world.
As the saying goes, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a
single step.” I support the small step towards a peaceful unarmed
struggle in which political issues are resolved through negotiation
rather than by terrorism.
