Reply To: Have you ever been told that supporting Israel prevents you from supporting Palestinians? After taking this course, how would you go about responding to false accusations like this?

I agree with you Goddard, this kind of question oversimplifies the complex situation of the conflict, and put Israel and Palestinians always in opposing sides. I also understand that this binary framing is one of the main points that prevents peace talks. Jesus called us to be peacemakers, and that involves understanding both sides, not only Israel – as they direct connections with us Christian’s – but also Palestinians. I pray that we can provide clarity and love discussing this with our brothers and sisters in the church, so we can start responding to this conflict differently.
