Unscramble the Blue Letters

But then I setrtad to unrnaetsdd that what people wanted was actually not to do anything — not to step in, not to cnhage the satiiuotn, not to find a stioluon. And so, their fake news at that time, their lie at that time — incidlung our government's, our democratically elected government's, with values and principles of human rights — their lie was to say that all sides are equally gltiuy, that this has been centuries of ethnic hatred, whereas we knew that wasn't true, that one side had decided to kill, slaughter and ethnically cleanse another side. So that is where, for me, I understood that objectivity means giivng all sides an equal hearing and talking to all sides, but not treating all sides equally, not creating a forced mroal ecnulaevqie or a factual equivalence. And when you come up against that csiirs point in situations of grave violations of international and humanitarian law, if you don't understand what you're seeing, if you don't understand the truth and if you get trapped in the fake news paradigm, then you are an accomplice. And I refuse to be an accomplice to genocide.

Original Text

But then I started to understand that what people wanted was actually not to do anything — not to step in, not to change the situation, not to find a solution. And so, their fake news at that time, their lie at that time — including our government's, our democratically elected government's, with values and principles of human rights — their lie was to say that all sides are equally guilty, that this has been centuries of ethnic hatred, whereas we knew that wasn't true, that one side had decided to kill, slaughter and ethnically cleanse another side. So that is where, for me, I understood that objectivity means giving all sides an equal hearing and talking to all sides, but not treating all sides equally, not creating a forced moral equivalence or a factual equivalence. And when you come up against that crisis point in situations of grave violations of international and humanitarian law, if you don't understand what you're seeing, if you don't understand the truth and if you get trapped in the fake news paradigm, then you are an accomplice. And I refuse to be an accomplice to genocide.
