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?

Jonathan, Palestinians do have self-determination. Palestinians voted in an election for Hamas to govern them. Hamas is a terrorist group who has been stealing aid. Israel has done more than the United States has done to prevent civilian deaths in war, but Joe Biden and others said that Israel is not doing enough to prevent civilian deaths so they can demonize Israel and turn people against Israel. Jews are indigenous to Israel and Jews did not steal land like other people have claimed. Jews also are not participating in genocide. The population of Arabs living in the West Bank and in Israel have increased. If Israel was committing genocide, the Arab population in Israel would have decreased.
