The one that has the power to stop the cycle of revenge is the one who has been wronged last, and whose turn it is to avenge. He could use his turn and strike back, thus continuing the endless cycle, or he could forego it -- both now and the next time until it stops. Such is the utility of turning the other cheek that nobody had thought of before Christ. It is wrong for Muslims to kill Muslims -- no matter what their sect. It is also time we figure out a way to stop sectarian violence and applying the original ideas of Christ might help us do so. We are all in this world together, and but for a short time. Surely we can find a way to get along.
