Gandhi, the Jews & Zionism: Gandhi's Message to the Arabs

(May 1, 1947)

From The Hindu

The Jews are a persecuted people worthy of world sympathy and India sympathises with them. They are energetic, intelligent and progressive. The Arabs are a great people with a great history and therefore if they provide refuge for the Jews without the mediation of any nation, it will be in their tradition of generosity.
