„Interview of 1929, as quoted in "Nations are greatly concerned over death of German President" in Berkeley Daily Gazette“

1 August 1934
Variant translation:
I am not a pacifist. That is not my attitude. But all my impressions of war are so bad that I could be for it only under the sternest necessity — the necessity of fighting Bolshevism or of defending one's country.
As quoted in TIME magazine (13 January 1930)

Kontext: I receive death threats on a daily basis. I'm a well-known writer in the Arab world. My writings expose me to millions of devout Muslims who have nothing positive to prove but the sheer cruelty of their teachings. Islam has deprived them of their intellectual ability to face criticism with an effective and acceptable way.
