Cindy Sheehan or Gandhi?

"It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs. What is going on in Palestine today cannot be justified by any moral code of conduct. The mandates have no sanction but that of the last war. Surely it would be a crime against humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national home."

So who said this, Cindy Sheehan or Mahatma Gandhi.

Hard to tell isn't it?

In 1938, we didn't yet know men like Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein, and Osama bin Laden.

In 2005 the "anti-war" movement has no such excuse.

It was Mohandas Gandhi who made those remarks.
Remember, Gandhi was a lawyer, educated in Britain, and knew that the Brits would not tolerate the slaughter of Indians. He did say that passive resistance would not have worked against a morally devoid entity like the Nazis, who could not be happier with unarmed people lying down in the street, so that they could just drive over them! I'm sure the Islamo-Facists of today are eagerly awaiting the latest rant from the hate America far Left!

Just to clarify: Mohandas and Mahatma are one in the same person. Mahatma is an honorific, meaning "Great Soul."
