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?

Magnus Walker

I was not fully aware of the Christian antisemitism. It is important to remember that the Jews are still God’s chosen race. They are unique and special to God. We also need to remember that God loves the Palestinians as well. We cannot as Christians act innocent of our history nor stand idlily by regarding this conflict because both groups need Jesus Christ. We need compassion when remembering the history of hatred and forcing the Palestinians to lose their land. When I grew up it was always side with Israel theologically and politically no matter what with no regard to the people Israel was hurting. We all no need God’s grace and mercy Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc… and are all saved by that same grace and mercy.
