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?

It is important to recognize, as you have, that one can be in favor of both Palestinian and Israeli interests without contradiction. One of the most frustrating things about this conflict is how polarizing it has become. The nuance required to speak with import on the conflict is often perceived as vacillation rather than a genuine recognition of its complications. But as Christians we are called to be peacemakers, and one hopes that recognizing the evolution of the conflict and acknowledging the egregious faults of Christians in the past can help diffuse some of this tension. Thanks for the comment Ian!
