Reply To: Have you ever been told that supporting Israel prevents you from supporting Palestinians? After taking this course, how would you go about responding to false accusations like this?

Hi Hunter, Thank you for discussing the importance of compassion and diligence in engaging in sensitive discussions such as these. No matter what is said or what side is taken, someone will always be hurt. As you encouraged, I think it is pertinent that one’s words and viewpoints are infiltrated with the power of empathy, compassion, and patience. Being Pro one side does not equate to be anti-another side. I am looking forward to seeing how these courses can further teach us how to engage in conversations with peers.
