Columnist Zaid al-Shami says in an article the political action is human attempts and various visions on numerous issues. It owners sometimes make mistakes and sometimes they are right.
The writer says today we are suffering from coercion, tyranny and despotism and mobilization against the opposition, as if it is a crime that should be rooted out and a guilt that must be ridden of. In a short period we have seen how that mobilization has led to the killing of a group of children in mosque in Yahr in Yafie and the killing of number of prayers in the mosque in Amran. Se are now in need of raising above pains and our stands must be at the front, calling for forgiveness and forgetting the past and the call for stopping the cycle of violence generated at the hands of this and that. Why don't we call for love and harmony and good dealing with those whom we differ? It would be most preferable if those in power begin to stop the cycle of violence.
