Todd Deatherage :: Who benefits from an unresolved conflict in the Middle East?

  • “You…have a whole group of people who are actually invested in the conflict itself,” explains Todd Deatherage, co-founder of the Telos Group. These people – for a variety of reasons – find their identity in the conflict itself, which makes it very difficult to find solutions acceptable to them. True justice requires the understanding that resolution is based on the mutual regard of the full community, not just one side. Some people hold the opposite view. “There are people who see the world in very maximalist terms…justice for me ends up being injustice for someone else.”
