This predictably drew the wrath of Chief Rebbe Abe Foxman's ADL. They zeroed in on Gandhi's observation that "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." The ADL called it an "outrageous libel of an entire people and of a country that wants nothing more than to live in peace and security." Gandhi was, of course, right to point out the global culture of violence and he might also have pointed to Judaism's very real Culture of Death, which via the West has also poisoned much of the world, esp. the US with its Neo-Cons and legions of Christian Zionists.
The Jerusalem Post also reports:
According to [Dr. Efraim Zuroff, the Simon Wiesenthal Center's Israel director], the notion that Jewish identity is "locked into" the Holocaust and causes resentment, coupled with the statement that "Israel and the Jews are the biggest players" in a "culture of violence [that] is eventually going to destroy humanity," clearly amount to anti-Semitism.In fact, Gandhi was right to advocate nonviolent resistance against the Nazis by Jews. The fact is that Jews and others did employ such resistance in the form of an international economic boycott and it was working until Jewish leaders undermined the effort in order to cut a deal with the Nazis in support of the eventual Jewish takeover of Palestine.
Furthermore, Gandhi's words reflect his grandfather's misunderstanding of the Jewish situation, Zuroff said.
"Sometimes people become obsessed with their own agenda to the extent that they think it's the solution to every problem," he said. "Even the great Mohandas Gandhi did not have a monopoly on wisdom, and the best proof of that was his suggestion that Jews engage in passive resistance against the Nazis. It's an absurd response in the face of absolute totalitarianism and a movement like Nazism. It's like saying the Indian army should disband and let the Taliban and al-Qaida and the Pakistanis overrun the country."
So far, Arun Gandhi has pretty much failed to capitulate to demands of the Holocaust Industry/Religion that he recant. Let's hope he stays strong and keeps speaking truth to power. For some of Arun Gandhi's views on 9/11, the Taliban, and al-Qaeda, see "A Legacy of Nonviolence: The Satya Interview with Arun Gandhi."

no one can divide india and israel
india official has 1 billion people.. unofficialy thats like 1.2 billion people.
according to the last census.. 85 percent of india is hindu.
so give or take thats a billion hindus.
according to the same states.. india has the highest number of young people under 30 in its population..
bordering 77 percent..
so lets say instead of 900 million.
they are 800 million young indians who are hindu
now coming back to your point.
the natural hatred for muslims then many young indians have. creates a natural allegance and support for the jewish state.
in india.. we go by the motto
enemy of your enemy is your friend.
and even the old folks in india love israel.. for the same reason.
GOD BLESS ISRAEL
we support you to the core.
