Mahatma Gandhi Inspires Obama


Mahatma Gandhi inspires Obama | IndiaInfo.com

Washington: Barack Obama, who today scripted history by getting elected as the first black President of the United States, has always seen Mahatma Gandhi as an inspiration who reminds him about the "real message of life".

Obama also flaunts his love to the apostle of peace by having a portrait of Mahatma at his Senate Office.

The Democrat, who favours US having close links with India, has told an Indian magazine that he was "fortunate" to have close Indian-American friends and recalled about the rural development work his mother did in the country.

Through the power of his example and his own unshakable spirit, Gandhi inspired a people to resist oppression, sparking a revolution that freed a nation from colonial rule, the Democratic Presidential-elect had said.

"Gandhi s significance is universal. Countless people around the world have been touched by his spirit and example. His victory in turn inspired a generation of young Americans to peacefully wipe out a system of overt oppression that had endured for a century.

"And more recently led to velvet revolutions in Eastern Europe and extinguished apartheid in South Africa," the 47-year-old Senator from Illinois had said in his message on October 2, birth anniversary of Gandhi

Obama says he admires Gandhi, and you can just see the peace crowd swooning in ecstasy.

But remember, George Bush SAID he was a Christian. Though he literally unleashed hell on Earth by starting a war, his blind followers still saw him as a moral leader.

Obama SAYS Gandhi is a role model. But Obama will soon be head of an "occupying power," and he swears his allegiance to the "occupying power" of Israel. Somehow, I can't see Gandhi palling around with those who are currently running the world's largest concentration camp.

Gandhi fought AGAINST imperialism, while Obama is set to take the reigns of empire.

Gandhi inspires Obama? And Rahm Emmanuel is history. If only.

"NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED".
