See the light on road to Damascus
IT was St Paul who famously "saw the light" on the way to Damascus.
Remember that he had been "breathing out murderous threats", a phrase that accords well with the Cameron/Clegg bully bluster over Syria.
Thank goodness that there were those in the Labour Party who sought and obtained wider counsel on this occasion. Unfortunately this does not mean that problems will cease to exist in the Middle East or in Africa or here on our own doorstep as we have just seen in the West Gate mall in Nairobi.
Once more the UK is heavily implicated in arming and training Kenyans to suppress Islamic movements in Somalia so we can't really claim a neutral status can we? Our legacy of Empire and our complicity with a new American "weltpolitik" leaves us as open as anyone to retaliation. It took some time for St Paul to "see the light", so let's hope we have enough of it to change course in a more inclusive and peaceful direction.
