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?

Hello Clay,

Thank you for this interesting perspective. I’m surprised that you have never personally faced the idea of having to ‘choose’ one or the other when it comes to this conflict. Like in many other contentious topics in our time, the lack of nuance and balance often leads to the idea of collective thinking, which is one vs. the other. The Israeli-Arab conflict is no different. I think it is one of the most significant issues regarding education. The majority of the population knows little to nothing about it.
