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?

Elise, I enjoyed reading your thoughts. Learning about the domino effects from terrible actions from the Christian church that led to the situation in the Near East today was eye opening. I knew that the history of the church wasn’t spotless, and that there were many instances when so-called Christians took Christ’s teaching’s into their own hands, but I didn’t know of the ramifications it had on the Jewish and Palestinian communities. I agree, knowing about these events give us the ability to as a church take responsibility and show compassion, and most importantly gives us the ability to learn from those mistakes.
