Will Gandhi work in the Israeli-Palestine conflict?

Now, Arun Gandhi, Mahatma's granson, is travelling to Palestine to try and help the locals with aspects of non-violence. It may have worked in India but will it in Palestine? He thinks so.

"I am going to tell the people about the value of non-violence. I am going to tell them that 55 years of violence has achieved nothing but more agony and heartaches and that it is time for them to try new ways of dealing with the issue," Arun Gandhi told BBC News Online.

"It is the safest and sanest alternative. Violence has not achieved anything. The Palestinians do not have the capacity and the ability to match the weapons of mass destruction that are available to Israel. So it is virtually suicide for them," he adds.
