I agree with your thoughts, learning about the history on the issue will help defend your stance. My minor was in Jewish Studies and the intensity of this conversation was strong back in 2013. I thought it was a issue that could be easily broken down, but there were many factors to consider. I started to lean toward my stance on a two state solution but even then looking at the aggression I worry about that solution if it were permanent. Studying history as well as studying the current culture can help us now when we engage in conversation.
