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?

Thank you for sharing, Taylor! I think you are right that we must show support for both Palestinians and Israelis and do so in respectful and healthy ways. I commend you for your efforts to fight antisemitism through the events you held that involved Holocaust survivors speaking out about their experiences. These events needed to be held, and I think there are also meaningful ways to engage with Palestinian/Arab communities in ways that do not undermine or take away from the events you already did like hosting the talk with the Holocaust survivor.
