Todd Deatherage :: How does identity change the Israeli-Palestinian conversation?

  • “Both sides have a story to tell…it’s the same history, but they have very different tellings of that history,” explains Todd Deatherage, co-founder of the Telos Group. Such identity-based stories will not reconcile, but listening to the stories with an open mind is a key first step. “Because they are two people groups living in the same place with deep connections to it…it’s really hard for them to say that the other side has a legitimate reason to be here.”
