The Israel-Hamas War: How Did We Get Here? And How Do We Go Forward?
The attack by Hamas on Israeli civilians on Oct. 7, and the military retaliation in Gaza by the Israel Defense Forces, raise many questions. Protests for and against both sides have turned ugly. Antisemitism and Islamophobia are on the rise. How did the Israeli intelligence sector miss this? Is the United States responding in the right way? How did we get here? And how do we go forward?
Colonel Bauman, who describes himself as pro-Israeli, pro-Palestinian, pro-peace, and pro-security, will discuss why all four are possible simultaneously, give a historical perspective on the current situation, and offer answers to the questions above that go far deeper than the hate-filled “discussion” on social media and the often-shallow coverage in the news.
