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?

Thanks for pointing us to Proverbs 18:2, Christian! The thought that verse prompted was: when do we actually achieve understanding, especially given the complexities at play? When can a half-baked opinion be asserted without being a fool? Or are we always fools, just in varying degrees? I think the key word in that verse is “only”–the fool does not consider or desires to understand, “only” to hear the sound of his/her own voice. May we never grow weary of trying to take time to sit, listen, question, and then speak/act.
