Christians need to keep the sad history of Christian antisemitism in mind when responding to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the present to reveal the journey Christians have gone through and learn not to make those mistakes. Each religion, race, and culture has a history that has molded itself to where it is now.

I was born within the church and had never heard of our history. I was taught that Christianity was brought from Europe to the Americas in school. Nothing more. Learning a fundamental and in-depth understanding of our Christianity, Zionism and Islam upbringings led to weeding Jewish individuals out of Europe and leaving them out to dry. Through this, it is important to know the foundation, the pain and the suffering and learn how the next generation of Christians can do better. How to truly meant “love thy neighbor” is not just another Christian, but those of different views.
