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?

Hey Clay,

Thanks for contributing to this question. I really enjoyed your thoughts. As someone who has Jewish friends with deep Israel ties, I have been able to hear firsthand the thoughts of people who are deeply tied to the issue. It seems that many people on both sides share similar thoughts to yours. It can be said that those who suggest that it’s a “choose Israel or Palestine” issue are perpetuating the hate that is already splitting them apart. Thanks again for sharing.
