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?

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for sharing your perspective! I think it is so hard to admit when we’re wrong but the added religious aspect of admitting we’re wrong here makes it that much harder than usual. The first step, admitting our faults in the past, is so difficult but so necessary for us to make peace with the Jewish community.

Prior to this course, I was unaware how Christian anti-semitism played the role of a catalyst in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the present. Now that I know, I can work to fix it.
