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?

There’s definitely something to be said about acknowledging the historical and spiritual connection many cultures have with the Jewish people and the land of Israel. This shared history can foster understanding and cooperation.
Robert’s point about acknowledging bias is also important. Recognizing our own preconceptions allows us to approach situations more objectively. By being aware of our biases, we can avoid letting them cloud our judgment and work towards building stronger relationships.
Ultimately, recognizing these connections and being honest about our biases can pave the way for productive conversations and a more respectful approach to complex issues.
