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?

Hey Jordan,

Thanks for your contribution. I like how you put the hatred against the Jewish people within today’s conflict into the self-reflective perspective that not only did the same happen in the West, but it could very well happen again. As a matter of fact: it may be happening as we speak.

I also appreciate your remarks regarding the humility we should have in today’s conflict. It does make me wonder: to what degree do you think we can be peacemakers given our checkered past? Wouldn’t it be better for Christians not to be involved and throw fuel on the fire?
