(1) I have always condemned and rejected the use of violence to achieve political goals. This has always been my position as a matter of principle and as a matter of political pragmatism, taking into account the nature of our society and the times that we live in today.

 

 

(2) As a matter of principle, I believe that the means should reflect, not justify, the goals for which we strive. Bloodshed and the loss of life desecrate the noble principles we strive for: freedom, justice and equality.

 

(3) Politically, modern experiences of struggle have long proven the efficacy of peaceful political action and the danger of the culture of violence on communities, especially those that are already divided by ethnicity or sect. Violence stiffens the heart. It leads to the rise of extremists from both sides of the conflict. It harms the reputation of the opposition and deflects attention away from its goals and away from its cause, and it allows for the intervention of foreign powers, taking all local parties hostage to it.
