For many, violence is a method of action one uses when they feel they have exhausted all other opportunities. WIth a scintilla of hope on the horizon from the pending UN statehood bid, it is reasonable to there to be a certain level of calm. For the sake of all parties, I truly hope the outcome of the UN diplomacy is productive for if it fails the consequences will not be pretty.
