An eye for an eye makes the world blind

Amrozi, a.k.a ‘the smiling assassin’ will now face the firing squad for his hand in the Bali bombing. I can’t help agreeing with Susanna Miller, one of the relatives of the British victims, who considers it an inappropriate punishment.

The Guardian reports: “Gandhi said an eye for an eye makes the world blind,” Ms Miller told Reuters. “We want a cessation of violence … We’re furious with the people that did it, but clearly it is just going to make the international situation worse if we’re going to have 30 martyrs.”
