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?

Dylan,

Likewise I have been dismayed learning about the correlation between ascendant Zionism and rising Christian antisemitism in Europe during the latter part of the 19th century. Following from what you stated, it is even more remarkable that after the horror of the Shoah the international community did not rally to support the fledgling Jewish state but rather was awash with indifference or outright hostility. Having this in mind definitely puts into perspective the importance of Christian engagement in the Near East and support for our Hebraic brothers and sisters.
