Anger is a legitimate emotion in the face of injustice. Passive acceptance of evil is not a virtue.

Syria's al-Nusra Front commander 'killed in strike'
Al-Shami was pictured in a Nusra Front video in March last year
The military chief of
Syria's al-Nusra Front has been killed in an air strike, according to
social media accounts linked to the jihadist group.
The online sources claim three other leaders died along with Abu Homam al-Shami.
Syria's state-run news agency reported his death was the
result of a "special army operation" targeting Nusra leaders as they met
in northern Idlib province.
Al-Nusra is one of the most powerful groups fighting the army.
It has long been seen as an affiliate of al-Qaeda and was
involved in a major attack on the Air Force Intelligence headquarters in
the embattled city of Aleppo on Wednesday.
The US lists al-Nusra as a terrorist group and it is under UN
Security Council sanctions. However recent reports suggest it may be
seeking to break its ties with al-Qaeda.
