Children are not born with hatred: they are taught to hate. When infected, they become carriers of hatred. The antitode is education, education, eduction: “Love your neighbor as yourself” and “Respect the Other”; they are the cornerstones of a civilized world”

“Holocaust denial are the rallying cries for all hate mongers of our day including ‘Camp Auschwitz’ and ‘6MWE’, shorthand for ‘Six Million Wasn’t Enough”, outfits. A scorge on any society. Racism and xenophobia are the variants and mutations of anti-Semitism. Hatred must be stopped in its tracks. United we must defeat these plagues against humanity.”
