Future 13 Does Fighting Resolve Conflict? Fighting can be necessary For self-defense To defend the weak Fighting does not resolve conflict Defeating

an enemy does not answer his grievances or end his hatred. The defeated are tempted to seek revenge. Left: General Ferdinand Foch nd (2nd from right) at German surrender in Compeigne forest near Paris

remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. 30 Any life that is lost in war is a human life, be it that of an Arab or Israeli. Innocent children who are

deprived of the care and compassion of their parents are ours. They are ours, be they living on Arab or Israeli land. 31 The reason why God does not punish an enemy is that He is thinking of the enemys

parents, wife and children who all love him. When you understand that heart of God, could you take revenge on your enemy? 32 The good news is that we know what to

do now we just have to do it. Violence is a disease. We have the antidote it is peace education, to raise social intelligence and development everywhere. All we have to do is inoculate all the children in the world. It is a big job, but we can do it. 34
