Of course, all governments are egoistic and pursue their own profit. However, the difference is that unlike Iran, none of the other countries make a political and governmental issue out of teaching their people to kill others.
If we look at the education taking place in this country, what are the people there being taught? They are being taught to kill others and to rule over others. This is why the weaponry they produce is a threat to the world. We need to reason according to how the young generation is being raised, what it hears, what it needs to make itself similar to, and how it should appear. We will then see that in America, they nevertheless talk about peace, in Israel they talk about peace, and generally speaking in the world, universal peace is more or less a guiding principle, whereas a fundamentalist regime such as the Iranian one discusses how to conquer and gain possession of the world. This is why weapons in their hands are very dangerous for the world’s well-being.
I hope that Iran will understand that world peace and development, including its own, depends on others, and I hope that they will change their path, and that the world will also reach the understanding that it needs to achieve positive connections of mutual consideration among all of its people and nations.
I also wish that we will all heighten in our development to live in a single embrace, like one big global family, because whether we want it or not, especially in our current era, from one day to the next nature is revealing to us that we are increasingly globally interdependent—like one big family.
Let us hope that someday we will rise in our consciousness to experience our growing connectedness in a loving and considerate manner, where we will take each other by the hands and start living together for the good of humanity and its future generations.
