Quotation for Tuesday

“People in power must return to just cause and recognize that, however unreasonable the cause may seem, there is often a valid underlying grievance that must be addressed. Besides perceived oppression of their religions, the poverty of the two-thirds world is a cause for much discontent that religious extremists can use to foment sympathy for their causes. Such poverty is a shame and a disgrace to the powerful nations who could surely ameliorate it by an active policy of equipping and helping the countries who are on the outside to become owners of their own futures.”—Durie, War in the Bible and Terrorism in the Twenty-First Century, page 122
