  •  The Life of Pi (7+ / 0-)

    From each side's perspective the other side is the tiger they are marooned with.  Yet Pi found a way to deal with the tiger so both of them could survive.  Surely two nations of Israelis and Palestinians can find a way to live with the tiger other.

    •  Pi's second version says the Tiger is part of him, (0+ / 0-)

      which he needs to master to survive his ordeal. And in that version the cook, who is more beast than man, has to die so Pi can live.

      We each have a beast in us. We all prefer to project, to say the beast lives entirely in our enemies.

      Pi is wise. To be strong, we must own our own beasts. Then we can fight our enemies' savagery, but still look for their humanity.
