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?

Hello Michael,
Thank you for sharing your experiences with bias and preconceived notions about “what side you should take”. People are notorious for making these bold comparisons and trying to pigeonhole people based on their background. I think that you made the right choice. There is a huge difference between caring for the welfare of the Palestinian people and supporting their leadership- this is an important delineation to make when talking with others about the conflict.
