The 10/7 War



Israel is at war with Hamas — a real war, not another “mow the grass” conflict.

Hamas is one of the terrorist groups funded, armed, trained and instructed by the Islamic Republic of Iran.

This war began on Saturday, October 7 when Israel was invaded by Hamas barbarians who mass-murdered young people attending a peaceful music festival, raped women, slaughtered babies, and took hostages, dragging them back to dungeons in Gaza. The list of Hamas atrocities and war crimes goes on and on.

Over the days since, Hezbollah, Tehran’s Lebanon-based foreign legion, has been probing Israel’s northern defenses. Another front could open.

To discuss, host Cliff May is joined by FDD Chief Executive Mark Dubowitz, FDD Senior Vice President for Research Jonathan Schanzer, and FDD Senior International Fellow Eyal Hulata, a former Israeli national security advisor and former head of Israel’s National Security Council.
