They are people too, we must recognize, those that raise the banners of racism. Everybody now condemns racist actions and expressions, and not few people are waiting anxiously at the corner for the lapsus linguae of the enemy that will uncover his tendency to evil discrimination. In a world wherein the howl and specially the bomb are considered licit weapons to get freedom and justice, it is not surprising to name the other as monster, snake, leech or other kind of animal not human. Beasts, on their hand, they can’t protest against our outrageous use of their names to qualify humans not us. But any people could understand that the enemies are people. The difficult thing is to digest this truth. To insult, to slander, to humiliate, are good means to not solve our serious conflicts. We prefer death instead of agreement. Animals kill to eat, humans kill generally for enjoyment and to that feeling they call honor, in the Middle East and in any place east of Eden.
