Tragedy comes from culture

Tragedy comes from culture

It is heartbreaking to witness the loss of innocent life among the civilians of Gaza. However, a review of not- so-distant history reveals that tragedy is inevitable for civilians whose culture produces radical/destructive extremists obsessively consumed with inflicting their way on neighbors and the world beyond.

I cite the terrible suffering of the many thousands of innocent Germans and Japanese who gave strength (willingly or unwillingly) to vicious and tyrannical regimes during World War II.

The ultimate responsibility for the horror of the Israeli/Palestinian war rests with the culture that gives birth and sustenance to these murderers.
