The Israeli Government responded to the October 7 attack by Hamas with collective punishment of Palestinians in Gaza. The slaughter and destruction continues as the war expands in the region. American activists protesting Israel’s escalation and its support by the U.S. government are subjected to accusations of anti-semitism and repression of dissent.
Join our panelists to discuss the roots of the conflict and current developments in the Middle East and in the U.S.
Steven Zunes – Professor of Politics and International Studies at the University of San Francisco, directed the program in Middle Eastern Studies
Lujain Al-Saleh – Arab Resource and Organizing Committee
