Evil is evil whether it’s the doing of a Palestinian radical hiding behind a black facemask or an Israeli Prime Minister hiding behind a claim to land. Evil is evil whether it’s a Russian separatist who shoots down a passenger jet or a Russian President who provides the separatist with it. Evil is evil whether it is the mother who slaughters her infant child or the father who turns a blind eye to his wife’s declining state.
Evil is evil- and inexcusable. And only evil makes excuses for it.
