Quotation from Yehudi Menuhin “Those who live by the sword shall die by the sword” — May 5 1991

Famous violinist and conductor. Excerpt from his speech at the Knesset for the reception of the Wolf Prize.

Author : Thematic :
" Those who live by the sword shall die by the sword and terror and fear provoke terror and fear. Hatred and contempt are fatally infectious … One fact is surely abundantly clear, namely this wasteful governing by fear, by contempt for the basic dignities of life, this steady asphyxiation of a dependent people should be the very last means to be adopted by those who themselves know too well the awful significance, the unforgettable suffering of such an existence ... It is unworthy of my great people, the Jews. "
