The Flotilla Clarifies the Conflict’s True Nature

Your afternoon sanity break

Print Email

This has been making the rounds, and deservedly so.

First, a little historical background. The side of the conflict that I support comprises nothing but honourable and courageous men and women. They are motivated by nothing more than a desire to defend their own families and rich culture. Their cause is right and these people are completely justified in every action, no matter what they do. By contrast, the other side is composed entirely of amoral murderous thugs who will stop at nothing to achieve their ends. Far from achieving a just settlement and a lasting peace, these thugs are only interested in perpetuating the cycle of violence and brutality.

Funny if you posit a simple moral equivalence, and a mutual inability to recognize the other’s claims.

But what if one side, enjoying no monopoly on virtue, is actually a little more right than the other?
