Support Arun Gandhi! Jews, Move On!

Arun Gandhi was forced to resign from the board of M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence based at the University of Rochester. Simply because he chose to comment on the all powerful Jewish mafia.
Here is a news report quote:

Gandhi was on a panel of scholars, writers and clergy who discuss a new topic weekly on the Washington Post's "On Faith" page and his comments, posted Jan. 7, drew a torrent of criticism, much of it unfavorable.
He wrote that Jewish identity "has been locked into the holocaust experience — a German burden that the Jews have not been able to shed. It is a very good example of (how) a community can overplay a historic experience to the point that it begins to repulse friends.
"The holocaust was the result of the warped mind of an individual who was able to influence his followers into doing something dreadful. ... The world did feel sorry for the episode but when an individual or a nation refuses to forgive and move on, the regret turns into anger."
Describing Israel as "a nation that believes its survival can only be ensured by weapons and bombs," Gandhi asked whether it would "not be better to befriend those who hate you?"
"Apparently, in the modern world so determined to live by the bomb, this is an alien concept," he wrote. "You don't befriend anyone, you dominate them. We have created a culture of violence (Israel and the Jews are the biggest players) and that Culture of Violence is eventually going to destroy humanity."

Now pray tell me, what is wrong with his comments?
Why does the whole world have to continue apologising for what happened to them under Hitler? To appease them, another set of people (the Arabs/Palestinians) have been permanently displaced, terrorised and satanised. Isn't that good enough? Who will speak up for the Arabs in the Middle East, and what they have had to endure because of what Hitler did in Europe to the Jews?
And why couldn't the Jews involve in a verbal debate with Arun Gandhi, instead of shutting him up and getting rid of him?
Hasn't the world asked the South African victims of apartheid to move on? Hasn't the world asked the African-American victims of slavery to move on? Hasn't most of the world moved on from sometimes brutal colonisation.
Is death really worse than brutal discrimination. So the Jews died dreadful deaths. Does that make other brutalities, that didn't result in deaths, less despicable?
