Justice is complicated [View all]

Aristotle says justice consists in what is lawful and fair, with fairness involving equitable distributions and the correction of what is inequitable.

Justice does not consist of never ending attacks.

Justice does not consist of never ending retributions..

Justice is complicated.

Edit to add (half the post got cut off)

Israel has a right to protect itself and seek justice for those attacked and held.

Palestinians have a right to exist.. and not be held solely accountable for the actions of Hamas in attacks.

If it will jumpstart the end of the killing madness.. then God Bless President Biden for calling for truce talks either in hopeful terms or actual terms.

If there were ever two groups of people who should have each others backs.. It is the Israelis and Palestinians.. Neither group has ever been accepted in other lands and they face off for the same piece of territory to just exist
