Something makes me uneasy about the case where Anwar made such stark comments to the media. Cannot quite put my finger on it, but I wonder about the whole concept of freedom of speech and the fear we all have of terrorism and associated activities. We are told that this could be the start of a hundred years of living with terrorism and that can only be depressing news for all of us. After all, who can expect to live longer than that to see some kind of sensible resolution.
The only thing possible in this week leading up to Remembrance Day is to remember the lessons of the past and to hope and pray for peace in the future. To hope even in the face of intransigence and hostility. That way, commonsense wins.
