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, I believe that you are not alone in being unaware of the Chrisitian involovement in antisemitism. Most Christians view Christianity as a religion that promotes compassion and love, not with the hatred and blame associted with antisemitism. As a student at a Baptist Christian university I had the opportunity to take a course specifically about Christianity and antisemitism and I was amazed at how deeprooted antisemitism is in the Christian faith. The class was an eye-opening and sobering experience.
