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, Esther for sharing your thoughts on Christian antisemitism and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! I like what you pointed out about approaching the conflict from a genuine and humble mindset. While we may not have personally been involved in the antisemitic events of the past, I think it helps to build bridges when we recognize the impact Christian antisemitism had on the Jewish migration back to Israel and the ensuing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. Understanding this connection also helps us seek to change the trajectory of Jewish-Christian relations by befriending Jewish people instead of alienating them.
