Today in Tablet Magazine, parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall reviews several books about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Though some are aimed at children and some at young adults, and though they were written by people looking in on the conflict from both sides, Ingall divines a common message: “The insistence that we not lump an entire people into one undifferentiated mass we label The Enemy.”
She adds, “this may seem like a naïve answer to a complex set of questions. But the ability to empathize goes a long way.”
