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?

One of my main struggles with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is that I agree there needs to be compassion and empathy for the Palestinians, but I don’t know what that looks like in a practical sense.

I disagree with Palestine’s main demand of complete territorial control and not recognizing a Jewish State. If that is the case, what can I support them on?

I suppose, and I will continue to act, the answer is advocacy. I can advocate for the rights and proper treatment of Palestinians. I can advocate for a two-state solution that will, hopefully, bring about some sort of peace between the two sides. Other than that, are there any ideas on how else we can support the Palestinian people?
