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 Taylor,

I enjoyed your post! I agree that it is crucial to show compassion and understanding for both sides of the conflict, it is entirely possible to be either pro-Israel or pro-Palestine while still understanding the positions and beliefs of the opposing side, you may disagree with them, or agree with the other side more, however understanding their position is crucial for a variety of reasons. It is also important to remember that we are dealing with people, sometimes we forget our actions affect human lives, outside of the politics.
