I believe there is a great deal of confusion regarding the Palestinian / Israeli conflict. Considering the president’s most recent speech calling for a return to the 1967 borders, I think the following video, forwarded by 3 New Hampshire Governor and former White House Chief of Staff, John Sinunu, might introduce a degree of objectivity. If we can’t get past our emotional reactions which may be based upon faulty preconceptions, peace will stand little chance of prevailing.
Understandably, because of a shared 1st Testament, most Christians are in solidarity with Israel and assume that the majority of fault should be laid at the feet of radical organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah, as well as the neighboring Arab countries. But, it may not be as cut and dry as most perceive. This is an incredibly complex issue with no tidy solutions. As Christians, I think it is imperative that we do whatever we can to foment peace. From my vantage point, that is not happening.
