This week’s David-and-Goliath struggle of a small New Jersey town evicting a Middle East dictator from its midst is a considerable victory of ordinary people over tyranny.
We have made our town a terrorist-free zone.
But Proverbs 24:17 cautions: “Do not rejoice when your enemy falls and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles.”
The murdered of Pan Am 103, the maimed of the 1986 Libyan Berlin discothèque bombing and British constable Yvonne Fletcher, gunned down outside Libya’s London embassy in 1984, still cry out for justice.
