A Deep Dive Into The Israeli-Hamas War. Steve Williamson and Gary LaMaster look at the history of the conflict, the conditions that led to the most recent outbreak of violence, the crimes committed by both sides, and Israel’s influence in the U.S.

The current war began when Hamas militants crossed the Israeli-Gaza border and committed obvious war crimes by murdering more than 1,200 Israelis, committing horrific acts of sexual violence, and taking about 250 people hostage. Unfortunately, Israel has committed its own war crimes in response by indiscriminately bombing Gaza resulting in more than 20,000 Palestinian deaths – 61 percent of which are women and children.

The situation is made even more controversial by the United States’ ongoing military aid to Israel and the denunciation of Israel’s actions by many in the U.S. and internationally.
