Transitions, Chapter 5: The Urgency of Israel and Palestine

Episode 126: “Transitions, Chapter 5: The Urgency of Israel and Palestine” 


JDK dedicates this episode to providing some historical context for the current crisis in the Middle East, in an effort to highlight all the problematic elements of history, myth, bigotry, and fear-based beliefs that exist on many sides of the seemingly perpetual conflict. What can be done to shift away from the crisis, without needlessly demonizing everyone in either Israel or Palestine in the process? JDK calls for getting comfortable with the discomfort of historical truths as a starting point – something that can help us pause and consider before engaging in (or supporting) activities that may make suffering even worse for everyone involved.
