The War to End All Wars Against Hamas



Nearly a month ago, Hamas invaded Israel and murdered over 1,400 men, women, and children. It was the deadliest attack on the Jewish people since World War II, which was also a war against the Jews that culminated in the Holocaust. The Israel Defense Forces are now in Gaza aiming to cripple Hamas’s military capabilities, and it’s a challenging mission.

To discuss, host Cliff May is joined by three FDD experts: Bradley Bowman, Hussain Abdul-Hussain, and Retired Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel (former commander in chief of the Israeli Air Force).

They talk about the status of Israel’s ground operation inside Gaza, including why forces are current concentrated in the northern part of the Strip; how the IDF might deal with Hamas’ extensive system of underground tunnels; what happened at Al Shifa Hospital and why Hamas is using ambulances; if there’s a difference between a ceasefire and ‘humanitarian pause’ as well as Israel’s conditions for agreeing to the former; how Israel’s Arab neighbors are reacting to the war; Saudi Arabia’s interception of missiles fired by Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen at Israel — and other related issues.
