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?

Yes, I had always heard that if you supported Israel automatically you were against Palestinians. Being honest, I didn’t know the answer before, I thought it was truth. But not I understand that I can’t denied that I have a bias, because my faith is routed on Israel. But being against Palestinians and wishing upon them bad is not a christian attitude is all the contrary. So, I learned that I can support Israel, and at the same time care for Palestinians because they are made at the Image of God. So, i don’t have to agree with them politically but should definitely defend them and care for them. They and the Israelis deserved a land to live in peace, and I don’t have to be part of the problem or add more drama to it. I have to pray, help and actually be part of the solution by sharing my knowledge and inviting more friends to learn about their narratives.
