Abusive Behaviour Begets Violence

An individual who suffers violent abuse and is persistently reviled at a young age frequently grows up to be a disturbed and abusive character himself in later life. The same can be said about nations. Years of persecution have a dire and untold effect. This is true of Israel which has adopted its Old Testament teaching of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Violence begets violence and there is no end to it. The result is mutual destruction.
The whole world will condemn Israel for its excessive zeal in protecting its "Promised Land".
