UN RECORDATORIO para todos esos fascifistas que dicen que hay que seguir el ejemplo de Gandhi al combatir a dictadores o terroristas (curiosamente nunca se lo dicen a esos dictadores o terroristas cuando se plantean enfrentarse a la "opresión" y a la "colonización y explotación occidental bla bla bla):
At what point is it okay to fight dictators like Saddam or the al Qaeda terrorists who want to take his place?

It turns out that the answer, according to Gandhi, is NEVER. During World War II, Gandhi penned an open letter to the British people, urging them to surrender to the Nazis. Later, when the extent of the holocaust was known, he criticized Jews who had tried to escape or fight for their lives as they did in Warsaw and Treblinka. “The Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife,” he said. “They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs.” “Collective suicide,” he told his biographer, “would have been heroism.”

Pues a mi que no me busquen.
