We may pretend that this could never happen here, but mass murder was thought out of the question in Srebrenica. The reality is that this can happen here, and it will happen here if we do not find a way of stopping the temperature rising. Already we have reached boiling point. All that is holding the old order in place is the democratic habit of a few generations, but this is eroding. It seems perfectly clear to me that we have reached a critical moment.
We remembered Srebrenica and London on the same day, but we were reminded of them both for different reasons. One we remember with shame in order to forget. The other we remember in order to get revenge.
