COMMENTARY/OPINION: Is Osama Bin Laden’s death the quintessence of justice and victory of our fight against terror, or the route to more violence and terrorist attacks to come…?

So when I was reading the May 2011 edition of her magazine (‘Live, love & thrive – All the way to 95!’), some of the contradictions, challenges, paradoxes and things that are good and bad about development were represented by the complexity of…

My Response to the killing of Osama bin Laden

As someone who lost my Father to terrorism, I understand the response to hold one person responsible and to be jubilant when that person is killed. But I knew I would lose some of my humanity if I followed this route. I have found that healing and transformation happens when I understand the roots of the problem and address that non violently. otherwise the cycle of violence and revenge continues.


I have always seen I have a choice…

Killing Resolves Nothing

The plane I was on landed in Washington, D.C., Sunday night, and the pilot came on the intercom to tell everyone to celebrate: our government had killed Osama bin Laden. This was better than winning the Super Bowl, he said.

Set aside for a moment the morality of cheering for the killing of a human being -- which despite the pilot's prompting nobody on the plane did. In purely Realpolitik terms, killing foreign leaders whom we've previously supported has been an ongoing…
