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?

Well said Axel. I think we see so much evidence of that when we see antisemitism just flippantly and casually bandied about in our politics today by elected Members of Congress in what’s supposed to be the nation most tolerant of religious and ethnic diversity in the world. This spells doom if we don’t nip it in the bud. And to nip it in the bud, we have to acknowledge it. When someone like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene speaks on stage at a white nationalist conference right after pro-Hitler sentiments, it ought to be roundly condemned by all. Yet some astoundingly horribly way it isn’t. If this is not fixed, it will lead to consequences, very bad ones that nobody should have to be the victim of.
