What Role Does Religion Play in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?
Spectrum Street Epistemology at Stratford Centre, London
In London, two men discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Peter Boghossian presented various claims, including who has ownership of disputed territory, the necessity of violence, and the importance of peace. The men disagree about every claim Peter presents, except one: they agree that removing Islam and Judaism would not help. Both men invoke evidence from the Bible or the Quran throughout the conversation and provide their perceived solution to the conflict.
At one point in the discussion, Peter asks the participants to switch sides and present the reasoning of the opposing perspective. This is where things become particularly interesting.
