Personally, I have not had anybody use the exact words that supporting Israel prevents a person from supporting the Palestinian people. However, it can be seen in America that we often make a conflict or issue divided into two major segments. For most issues here in the States, we are either “pro-this” or “against-this”. For the Israeli- Palestinian conflict, I believe it is much more complex than just choosing to side with one specific group of people. I would go about responding to this by saying that all of humanity is created in the image of God. Whether people choose to follow the Lord or not is a separate decision, but God created humanity as a reflection of who He is. The Jewish people, I believe, should have a nation as the Lord did use this specific group of people throughout the Bible for His redemptive plan. However, there should be a way to do this without eliminating an entire group of people- the Palestinians. Both the Palestinians and the Jewish people are in need of a Savior ultimately, so our goal as Christians should be to display the love of Christ to both groups.
