Gandhi, Revisited

Recently, there have been references on various blogs about Gandhi's view of how European Jews should have responded to Hitler (i.e. allow themselves to be slaughtered). They are being mentioned in light of the threats that are coming out of Iran, as well as Jimmy Carter's recent book accusing Israel of "apartheid".

In any case, I ran across this article that came out at the time Richard Attenborough's film on Gandhi was released. If you ever thought you knew Gandhi, it is an interesting read (though quite long). You may find a great deal about Sergeant Major Gandhi surprising.
