Gandhi’s Grandson: Israel, Jews ‘Biggest Players’ in ‘Culture of Violence’

Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Arun Gandhi contributed the following bit of profundity to The Washington Post’s online conversation on religion:

Jewlicious blogger “themiddle” correctly flags this line as particularly stunning: “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 blog Solomonia notes that Arun’s grandfather wasn’t too intelligent when it came to Jews either.

UPDATE: Arun Gandhi has now posted the following not-so-apologetic apology titled “My Apology for My Poorly Worded Post”:

He writes:

I wonder what impression readers should have drawn from his assertion that Jews and Israel are “the biggest players” in laying the groundwork for the destruction of humanity?

The ADL is, quite rightly, not impressed.
