07-17-14 Israel's invasion of Gaza, Hanania & Younes debate the issues
Arab Daily News editors Ray Hanania and Ali Younes debate and discuss the issues surrounding the decision by Israel to launch a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip. Did Hamas or Israel start the current conflict? What are Israel's objectives? Is Hamas acting as a responsible government or are they terrorists with no strategic agenda other than conflict? Why is it that none of the Arab countries or the Muslim World have stepped in to speak out in defense of Hamas or the Palestinians in this conflict? Is the use of violence in the form of resistance against Israel effective or a detriment to the Palestinians and do they have other options? Hanania and Younes discuss these and other topics in this freewheeling 30 minute podcast discussion and debate. What is Egypt's role int he conflict and why are they siding with Israel? Why hasn't Hezbollah entered the conflict? And can the United States intervene to prevent the bloodshed that is one-sided and has taken more than 235 Palestinian lives including the deaths of more than 45 children?
