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?

This response is awesome. “Both people can and should live in this land.” Hearing the perspective of a Jew on this course was interesting, and I hope we get to talk about it more. I like that you refuse to see the conflict as one-sided or over-simplified, but instead, see the conflict as a complex problem needing a complex but inclusive solution.

I like that you also take the advice of the instructor by embracing your bias, but also still try to see the conflict without bias.
