Peace activists at Duma.


Those who run people down with vehicles and stab them would also prefer a sniper’s rifle, which shoots people in the back from a safe distance. But that’s what they have at the moment – cars and knives. The victims of the hit-and-run terror attacks are the children of all of us, but they are also the soldiers of all of us, who could have protected us and themselves better from here and not from there. And the golem – as long as it still breathes – holds them with all its might, and will not let them go home.

The “sharp condemnations” have lost their value and become empty gestures. Who are they trying to impress? Certainly not the murderers, for whom the storm of rebuke only puts more wind in their sails.
