Gregor Gysi on the attack in Manchester
Terror and Violence don’t come to an end. We express our compassion to the relatives and friends of the innocent dead and injured, and to the latter we wish a quick recovery. Of course the perpetrators have to be brought to justice and held accountable.
The question is if the west continues on its path to react to violence with violence, accepting an escalation, or if finally we are ready to contribute to end the conflict in Syria and other wars. The task is to overcome hunger, poverty and hardship as well as our cultural dominance towards other cultures and religions. If the west does not follow this path, we don’t have a chance to overcome terrorism even in the long run.
