My attitude to peace is rather based on the Burmese definition of peace - it really means removing all the negative factors that destroy peace in this world. So peace does not mean just putting an end to violence or to war, but to all other factors that threaten peace, such as Discrimination, such as inequality, poverty.
Discrimination against Jews can be read in Thomas Aquinas, and insults against Jews in Martin Luther.
The demand for a statement of a candidate’s religious belief can have no meaning except that there may be Discrimination for or against him because of that belief. Discrimination against the holder of one faith means retaliatory Discrimination against men of other faiths. The inevitable result of entering upon such a practice would be an abandonment of our real freedom of conscience and a reversion to the dreadful conditions of religious dissension which in so many lands have proved fatal to true liberty, to true religion, and to all advance in civilization.

Today President Bush has failed the American people and especially people of color. Despite the lip service he and his party have given in recent weeks to building racial unity, his latest action seeks to perpetuate the current effects of past Discrimination. ...

It is my considered opinion that the State of Israel is a racist state in the full meaning of this term: In this state people are discriminated against, in the most permanent and legal way and in the most important areas of life, only because of their origin. This racist Discrimination began in Zionism and is carried out today mainly in co-operation with the institutions of the Zionist movement.israel shahak

Fascism was part of the absolute evil. (...) We have to denounce the ashaming pages in the history of our past. (...)
