present day, 2008, when the church begins meditating on the passion of
Christ, I do not make Ingrid Betancourt the equal of Jesus. I mention
them together only because we have lately been aware that, if Mrs
Betancourt was released and could regain her political position, she
would devote herself to relieving of their hardships all of the
crucified on earth, whose sample, the FARC who have detained
as a hostage, she has mixed with under duress for six years.
years I have stated that the more impressive are protests rallying and
marching to clamor loud for Ingrid Betancourt's release, the more
pricey the hostage and the less willing the Colombian guerilleros to
part from the human shield she has been so far against the army busy
hunting them down.
But there's something else:
Eladio Perez, a former parliament member lately released by the FARC,
has disclosed that he had talked with Ingrid Betancourt a lot. She has
pondered deeply and changed her mind, he said. Notably, she has ended
up realizing that the FARC's rebellion and violence have not resulted
from a personal ambition of a few leaders of men, but from human causes
much deeper and widely shared. Deep in her prison jungle, Ingrid
Betancourt, although the FARC keep submitting her to want and
humiliation, warns that this rebellion can't be resolved by the
military and that negociation alone on a humanity basis is the way out.
Perez claims to have seen Ingrid Betancourt recording her thoughts in
notepads that the FARC have never taken away from her. She knows that
there are deux Colombias: a wealthy urban Colombia and a destitute
Colombia (a pattern of society also in existence in a lot of countries
on earth) and that nothing conflicting between them can be resolved by
traditional political plans.
It seems that Ingrid Betancourt
worked out a plan of peace a lot closer to love and wisdom
than law. Would she had understood what The
Revelation of Ares
says from beginning to end, that is, politics like its mater religion
does more evil than good, despite good intentions, because it is based
on a system which holds on with law and suppression of the intractable?
the painful passion Ingrid Betancourt has gone through lead to a happy
end of the problem that the FARC have raised in confrontation with
Colombia's central powers and, by extension, to happy measures towards
all the crucified on earth, notably in other parts of Latin American?
Sarkozy, given information on Mrs Betancourt's expectations by Luis
Eladio Perez, may have suggested that France could welcome the
guerilleros from the Colombian jungle in case their country would not
reintegrate them into society after they lay down their arms.
