Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose
in response to reader comment: PEACEFUL NATION? YEAH, COMPARED TO THE HUNS

Submitted by donvan (United States), Mar 1, 2007 at 09:18

If only we could pursue peace with the same energy we accomodate hate. Your feelings for the Israelis, not withstanding, the pain you may have suffered, is not limited to the Muslims, the Jews and Christians and others have suffered as well. The path to peace is much more difficult than the path to hate. If you can find the strength to forgive those who have harmed you, and love those who hate you, you will be on the right path. Anyone can love those that love them, but to love those who have taken your home, humiliated or killed your family, and left you a beggar on the road, that depth of love is the wellspring of peace and the hope of all mankind.
