Reply To: What were some of your primary takeaways after reading Matti Friedman’s “There Is No ‘Israeli-Palestinian Conflict’”?

Hi Banza, I enjoyed reading your post. I agree that the conflict is best understood when you zoom out and view it in context. The near east is a region full of tension and complicated relationships. The Israel-Palestine conflict is more than a conflict of territory between two peoples, it is largely a conflict between contrasting ideologies and religions with global involvement. A black and white answer is not sufficient for such a complex and multifaceted problem. I am grateful to continue learning and being a part of the conversation!
