All the posturing and rhetoric from all sides ignores a basic principle in human relations. As an individual or as a state, seeing oneself as a VICTIM stops one from moving forward to participate with one's neighbours for positive solutions. The focus of the entrenched victim is a feeling of resentment, hatred and a need for revenge. Reacting instead of acting, refusing to take responsibility for one's own situation, makes the victim's job easy: it's always the others' fault, revenge becomes justified, and nothing worthwhile is ever created from such an attitude. It is a cycle of negatives. It blinds the victim of the real solution - to work with oneself and one's neighbours for a common good, to work with awareness. There is so much that is good in all countries. We must focus on that. Could it ever be possible to work together without resorting to posturing and rhetoric? To use the real power we all have?
