The Executive Board of the International Council of Christians and Jews issued a statement today expressing alarm over an “increasing polarization in the discourse between Jews and Christians and also within each community,” when it comes to the Israeli‐Palestinian conflict. Based on reports from ICCJ members around the world, “extreme viewpoints seem to be increasing in popularity, while efforts toward moderation or compromise are rejected as disloyal or naive.”
