An Eye For An Eye

Three boys are kidnapped and murdered in Israel. In reprisal it seems another boy is kidnapped and murder in Israel. Rockets are sent to bomb people in Israel from Palestine. In reprisal houses are bombed in Palestine by Israel. many people die.

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and a foot for a foot, the old book teaches. Newer books teach differently. What all know is that an eye for an eye leaves the whole world one eyed, lame and toothless and eventually a life for a life will leave the world devoid of life.

I am not a religious person and do not know what I believe except this: life must be the most important thing and the taking of life must be wrong, whether taken in retaliation or in greed or in emotion. The taking of life to prevent life being taken must be right,but what is not right is when people claim that they ae taking life to pre emption to taking of other life.
