in response to reader comment: WAR WITH ISRAEL

Submitted by Peter mondail (Egypt), Nov 17, 2008 at 04:40

And what's your point? Blame an entire population based on the acts of a misguided fundamentalist few. Disrupt the balance of righteousness and humanity and sink to the level of those who seek to kill and mame simply to make a point. We must rise above the hate and stop keeping scores. Reality states that a two state soluation is the only plausible outcome to this situation. Neither the israelis or the palestenians can be extinguished from the area and so perhaps the only thing that they can do is co-exist.

Perhaps, you, and indian are sometimes angry at muslims for their terror attacks in india or that somehow they symbolise pakistan, but let me remind you how hindus kill muslims for example in gujarat or how they kill christians such as in the recent incidents reported a few weeks ago. To blame an entire population for the acts of a few is to condemn the 800 million hindus in india, which is not fair. Perhaps it is better to blame the extremists from both ends, and not allow them to dictate the fate of their people. Peace is what we should strive for, forgiveness and rising above the ashes of tragedy to forge ahead with new hope and extinguish hate.
