Revenge in Arab proverbs #Syria
Arab proverbs on revenge do not augur well for Syria’s future. There are many, but here are a few, to give a flavour:
Blood washes away blood
Vengeance erases shame
Break one jar of mine and I will break one hundred of yours
I looked for Arab proverbs on forgiveness and could only find one:
Only when the fault is forgotten is forgiveness complete
Reading Robert Fisk’s offering from Damascus today:

As the Turkish proverb says:
If you dig a grave for your neighbour, measure it for yourself

I intend to continue exploring this idea of revenge as opposed to forgiveness. It may be an area in which Islam differs fundamentally from Christianity, but I am still researching it before coming to any final conclusions. Thank you for your support and interest.
