    "The cry for the national home for the Jews does not make much appeal to me. The sanction for it is sought in the Bible and the tenacity with which the Jews have hankered after return to Palestine. Why should they not, like other peoples of the earth, make that country their home where they are born and where they earn their livelihood?"

    Of course many will consider this a fair enough point. "Gandhi found nobility and a “joyful sleep” which he implored the Jews to partake in" -

    "Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher's knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs. As it is, they succumbed anyway in their millions."

    "Louis Fisher, Gandhi’s biographer asked him: “You mean that the Jews should have committed collective suicide?”

    Gandhi responded, “Yes, that would have been heroism.”"
