this article is indeed a very important one. without doubt, it will stir up outrage by some, if not many. but the article is important, because empathy is missing, everywhere! we need more imagination and open-mindedness! more universal human values! less blame and condemnation of whole groups of people just because they share something. on a related note, it is a paradox for me to see some members of a religion, that has experienced utterly devastating suffering in its history, negating the suffering of others or justifying the suffering with claims of being guilty for this and that and thus deserving suffering. how can this be?
