Gandhi: "Israel" and the Jews are the biggest players in a culture of violence

Arun Gandhi delivers the keynote address at the demonstration in Abu Dis, calling on both Israelis and Palestinians to employ nonviolence in their struggle against the Occupation.

Gandhi: Jewish identity in the future appears bleak,
"Israel" and the Jews are the biggest players in a culture of violence.

The Jewish identity in the future appears bleak. Any nation that remains anchored to the past is unable to move ahead and, especially a nation that believes its survival can only be ensured by weapons and bombs. In Tel Aviv in 2004 I had the opportunity to speak to some Members of Parliament and Peace activists all of whom argued that the wall and the military build-up was necessary to protect the nation and the people. In other words, I asked, you believe that you can create a snake pit -- with many deadly snakes in it -- and expect to live in the pit secure and alive? What do you mean? they countered. Well, with your superior weapons and armaments and your attitude towards your neighbors would it not be right to say that you are creating a snake pit? How can anyone live peacefully in such an atmosphere? ...

We have created a culture of violence (Israel and the Jews are the biggest players) and that Culture of Violence is eventually going to destroy humanity.
