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?

Amen Esther! I could not understand how Christians felt righteous and justified to persecute our Jewish brothers and sisters because of this hatred that blames them for the death of our savior. Do we forget that Christ taught us love and forgiveness? Are we quick to forget Matthew 7:3? “Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?” I was so heartbroken to find how big our contribution to persecution was. We cannot be neutral and silent when it comes to our Jewish family.
