An eye for an eye makes whole world blind

It’s raining in NY and I’m exhausted. Last night I spent most of the evening chatting with my best friend from Buenos Aires about what the real solution for this situation could be. We remembered a similar situation that city had two live twice: the bombing and total destruction of the Embassy of Israel in Buenos Aires and two years later the brutal bombing of the Argentinean Association of Israelian Communities (the authors of both attacks haven’t been found yet after more than ten years). I also remember the time I spent in Jerusalem in 1989 and the deep feeling of injustice and anger I felt when I saw the heavy boots of Israelian soldiers crashing the heads of two unarmed Palestinean kids. “An eye for an eye makes whole world blind” said another friend of mine today quoting M. Gandhi and I thought that that reflected exactly what my feelings are today.
