Reply To: Why is it important for Christians to keep the sad history of Christian antisemitism in mind when responding to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the present?

You’re an inspiration, Marina! I struggle to properly address the bad parts of our history with the Jewish people. I don’t want to pretend everything is perfect, but I have a hard time truly realizing just how much damage that the church did with antisemitism. You’re right – understanding antisemitism is a key part for Christians to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This is the most ancient hatred, that keep returning in more awful ways and has used this conflict as a way to disguise itself.
