Hamas in Palestine

The Hamas was 'democratically' elected in Palestine, and yet, now that they are elected, we don't want to deal with them because we regard them as 'terrorists'.

Goethe says 'Treat a man as he is then he remain as he is. Treat a man as he should be, then he'll show you how he can be and should be.'

This would be a good time to test out this theory. If we treat them as 'terrorists', they will remain terrorists. However, if we treat them as 'human beings', then maybe they'll behave like human beings.

On the other hand, if the Hamas express such anger such as the extermination of the Israelis, then they should understand the retaliation. It has nothing to do with 'terrorism'. It has to do with human nature.

It is time to let go of the anger. It is like brother fighting against brother and it is hard to watch from the outside. We are all family here. It starts with the individual. All you have to do is not to arm yourselves and hurt another fellow human beings. If all of us take on that responsibility, peace would happen instantaneously. The world maybe at war, but you can decide not to take part in it, not to fuel it. May peace be with you.
