Attacker shot on scene; Of the victims, four moderately wounded, one lightly so.12:38 27.11.15 | 0 comments
In Northern Island the crimes committed by the IRA, the Loyalists and British Army were unspeakable; the aspirations of the parties were unreconcilable; there was no end in sight. But with maturity (and despite active IRA support from the US) a resolution was achieved with an undivided state. In South Africa the crimes committed by the ANC and the South African government were unspeakable; the aspirations were unreconcilable, there was no end in sight. But with maturity (and despite passive, if not active, support of the Apartheid government by the US) a resolution was achieved with an undivided state. In the Israel/Palestine conflict the situation is identical to both Northern Island and South Africa, and the active support of Israel by the US is prolonging the conflict. Both sides need to realise that a single undivided state is not only achievable, but essential to peace and security. This would require maturity (which neither side has exhibited) and the US 'butting out'.
