refuses to accept the existence of this suicidal type of arms is a mentally
healthy person, who does not want to be expelled from this earth as Adam was

"Nuclear weapons are means of extermination, and cannot protect any country, including Israel.
"A state that lives in fear of destruction must not threaten the whole world with annihilation. The people who experienced a holocaust must not bring a holocaust upon another people.
"Moreover, a nuclear war is worse than the holocaust of World War II. A single bomb can eliminate a whole city, destroy half a million people in one blow, including women, children and old people, and everything that lives in it, and even the very infra-structure of the city.

"Is any government qualified and authorized to produce such weapons?
"The United States developed its atom bomb during World War II, without giving much thought to the long-term effects and consequences - and the rest of the world has followed it to this day.
"Only peace between states can promise real security to each state and to every citizen. No force in the world can provide security or ensure survival.
"It was not force which spread the word of Jesus through the world.
