One jihad is as good as any other, as this divine tragedy suggests. Where have all the flowers gone, indeed. As Bonhoeffer said, "The follwers of Christ have been called to peace ... and to that end they renounce all violence. ... They maintain fellowship where others would break it off. They renounce hatred and wrong. In so doing they overcome evil with good, and establish the peace of God in the midst of a world of war and hate."
