Reply To: Have you been exposed to harmful antisemitic tropes about Jewish control over finances or foreign policy? After participating in this course, how would you go about responding to these tropes if you encounter them?
After reading your reply, I just wanted to say how incredible it is that you took the time to petition on this young man’s behalf. What happened to him was an atrocity, but thank God he had activists and strangers like you who cared enough to see justice be served on his behalf. Additionally, it is refreshing to know that you have an understanding that just because we disagree with a country’s policies or military actions, does not mean we automatically assume this country no longer has the right to exist. I have to have this conversation frequently with both students and adults.
