I Support Palestine

I am in support of the people of Palestine. While most of the people I know are supporting Israel I am seeing things from a different perspective. There is a difference between Biblical Israel and the current State has only been in existence since 1948. The arrogance of modern Israel’s government is stunning. What is happening there is akin to Apartheid. Of course, this is a highly ancient and complex issue with no easy solutions it seems. This does not mean I am anti-Jew because some good friends are Jewish, I will probably take heat for this but the people of Palestine deserve better and they are God’s children too. Palestinians love their children too.

  1. This is such a complexly entangled issue. I am in support of peace between the current Israelis and the longtime Palestinian families of the area. Jerusalem especially is holy ground for three separate faiths who don’t always seem to remember they worship the same Deity 😢

  2. The whole situation is horrible. I heard that the Israelis bombed a building containing AP offices as well as residential apartments–not sure why they are allowed to do that!
