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?

Hello Harrison,

I appreciated your point that, since Christ came to save us all but came first through the Jews, that we have a duty both to support the Israelis in their quest for a safe, stable homeland, but also that that means working with Israel to ensure that the universalizing spirit of Christianity is applied to the Palestinians as well. Jewish people have a right to exist and that right cannot be exercised without the state of Israel, but once we accept the state of Israel’s existence as a fact, we can still do everything we can to work to uphold the ability of all nations to prosper.
