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?

I believe that as Christians in the West we must know history in order to have a more complete vision and educated opinion on the subject. Although it is true that this story is not over yet and we know from the word of God that there are things that must be fulfilled, it is clear that the Jewish people are very special to God and God will fulfill the promises that He has spoken to them as He has always done. For me, after learning more about the Jewish and Palestinian conflict, I think I can be more empathetic and sensitive to what these people have experienced. The current situation between Jews and Palestinians must be seen through the lens of compassion. As Christians it is our duty to pray for these people, since only they know how difficult it must be to suffer and fight for the land where they were born, culture and beliefs that define their identity as human beings.
