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?

Thank you Griffin for mentioning that “Every man’s way seems right in his own eyes, and culturally and societally, the way that seems right regularly shifts and changes”.
Being German and married to an American, I experience the difference of cultures on a daily basis, even more so, that we now live in the USA.
Tied to this – and in fact every – political conflict, one always has to remember that different cultures do different things differently and this is normal, there should be no evaluation of this other than what goes against Natural Law.
Being convinced, that we, as Christians, do share a responsibility to be peacemakers in the world – which includes the Near East – it is equally important to not act as a sort of “know-it-all” telling the Israelis and the Palestinians what to do.
