There never was a good war or a bad peace.

I had an opportunity to see this movie by Stephen Spielberg…Munich!
I know since this movie got released I am planning and then it kept on getting nominated for the Academy Awards …I suppose 5 times and still I couldn’t get a chance!

“The combat deepens. On, ye brave, / Who rush to glory, or the grave! / Wave, Munich! all thy banners wave, / And charge with all thy chivalry!”

Today I was just about in the Blockbuster to get my free movie when I saw this movie there and said ..Yes, this was something that I was looking for ages :D
Amazingly done…it has shown what happens to the people who actually works in this and the people behind this they seems to live a good life!!!
But the people who actually do this dirty job they just keep fearing for there own life and family.
A very well taken movie with a message to mass that an eye to eye is not the solution…I remember MK Gandhi

“Nonviolence is a weapon of the strong” ~ MK Gandhi

and Martin Luther King Jr. who believed in MK Gandhi and took inspiration through out his mission for the people of America.

“Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr


In all, we all know violence is harmful not the person who is killed but also to the killer..!

“That's all nonviolence is - organized love.” ~ Joan Baez

But overall, the base of this movie in which the Israeli Olympic players who were taken as hostages and later killed were never remembered…but the violence went on killing each one of them assuming one is Palestinian and the other is Israeli.

“There is no way to peace, peace is the way.” ~ A.J. Muste

You have a BEAUTIFUL blog and I absolutely love all the sayings and statements younpot in - GREAT!! I remember Munich ... but the REAL thing - I studied at that time some 500 meters away from that place, just on the other side of a small hill ... and heard the helicopter and commotion - but didn't know what was happening!

Wonderful post! After reading this post, I got reminded of another quote by Mahatma Gandhi:
I object to violence because when it appears to do good,
the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
- Mahatma Gandhi

powerful post!

**Nonviolence is a weapon of the strong”

I so agree with that! alot of ppl these days think that VIOLENCE is the way to attain Peace and Freedom, which is a huge misconception. Real freedom-fighters never used violence or terror. Gandhi and Mandela r great examples.

Peace is the only way to Peace.

Keshi.

What I beleive in is

Zulm sehne se bhi hoti hai zalim ki madad..
Is daur mein jeena hai to kohraam macha do...

No doubts the movie Munich was great.

neihal said...

Munich is superb movie...absolutely loved it...But you know everytime I think of terrorism, I dont know what would be the best way or ways to address this Issue...I definitely dont support use of violence...but there has to be some longlasting logical solution to it.

SCRIBBLEZ TO WAKEUP said...

Great tht u saw it...I love this movie ..Saw it when it got released n it has left an impression on me, a lasting impression! Lot of angles of tht movie teaches u a whole buch of things and reality too. Your quotes r fantastic supplements to the movie...:)

Kumar Chetan said...

I differ on the idea of nonviolence. I dont support violence but then some time you have to use force. Andaz apna apna.

Suji said...

Great post. How true that an eye for an eye will make the whole world blind. Haven't seen the movie yet....hope to see it soon.

I have heard about the incident but not abt the movie.
Yes eye for eye is never a solution . Such approach can result only in fear & hatred nothing else.
