Honest relationships needed to make peace
A dear friend who returned from a fact-finding trip to Israel and the West Bank invited me to attend a public presentation of her experiences.
She had hoped for constructive dialogue and invited many members of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities. The event did not run smoothly.
My friends in the Jewish community felt they were under attack, and at first I wondered “do my friends initiating this gathering understand how frightening are their remarks and observations for our Jewish friends?”
