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?

Hi Cristina! I loved how you brought up the point to simply have people do their own research, beyond an instagram post. I remember after my Passages trip, the people of Israel on both sides saying how American media tends to glorify the conflict in ways that really are not happening. Of course, the conflict is complex & there are individuals who are suffering from the conflict on both sides, but a lot of people’s opinions are derived from sources that don’t actually focus on the people there and how they are affected. Thank you for sharing!
