Statement on the Build Up to a Possible War With Iran

The Druids of old were known as peacemakers and were once so respected that when they stepped onto the battlefield all hostilities immediately ceased.

It is in the spirit of reverence for these ancient ways that The Order of the Whiteoak (Ord na Darach Gile, www.whiteoakdruids.org) wishes to affirm its support of peace and justice in the world.

War is properly the option of very last resort and pre-emptive war is both immoral and unethical. We urge our political leaders to use diplomacy to create goodwill, peace and harmony between nations, religions, and peoples.
