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 Dylan,

I appreciated reading your post and believe you demonstrated why it is essential to not accept positions toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict without first engaging with those connected to it and doing our own research. I completely understand what you mean about the conflict between Israel and Hamas this past summer consuming all aspects of our media. We witnessed influencers and celebrities, some with millions of followers, sharing with their audiences extremely biased and harmful information on the conflict. Because of this, a large part of the war took place online. I am so glad that you took the initiative to understand the complexities of the conflict and how to help promote peace throughout this program!
