This one has just been published as TFF PressInfo here. I argue that we need to focus on the violence on both sides rather than taking sides among the parties. The article ends with some principles about conflict understand and will be followed-up with some more concrete ideas.
I sincerely believe we must try to be constructive, pro-peace and not continue to be stuck in blaming, apportioning guilt and focus only on past and present cruelty – we need, to make peace, to look into the future and what it could be like, acceptable of course to all parties.
No, it is not easy – it is much easier to thrwo mud in one or the other direction and vent one’s frustrations. But I am looking for people who’d like to make an honest attempt.
