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?

Ariel, that’s a great point you make about how Christians are educated about their own history. Oftentimes, I find myself and other Christians having poor or even incorrect understandings of our history. In my own experience, my education in this topic tried to justify wrongdoings. In other words, there seems to be a belief that the history of Christianity has to be perfect, and so perceived wrongdoings can always be explained. This doesn’t do anyone any good, especially as you mention, in interreligious dialogue.
