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?

It is imperative for us Christians to keep the heartbreaking history of Christian antisemitism, especially now more than ever. I find it hard to learn how self-righteous Christian’s felt, and justified to commit such heinous crimes against our Jewish brothers and sisters. I also find it hypocritical for modern day Christians to quote the psalms King David wrote, to go deep into the old testament that essentially birthed the new testament, yet remain silent and apathetic when it comes to Israel and Jews around the world. It is our duty to protect, stand with, and defend our Jewish family, we are all Judeo-Christians. Our savior is such a good father, I KNOW He wept – when he saw his children committing crimes He did not come here to teach the world to do. I feel that we should push our local churches to talk more about these things, no matter how hard it is to swallow or take accountability for; this is not to shame us, but to move us to be more loving and caring towards others and especially our Jewish family.
