After the sadistic, savage Hamas attacks of October 7th, Israel has had little option but to respond with force against Hamas-controlled Gaza. Is the war that Israel is engaged in against Hamas simply another Israel-Palestinian war, or are there wider implications for all of us, in the West? To what degree is Iran involved in this war? How intent is Iran to stay out of this war, and to what degree are the Iranian proxies, including Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria and the Houthis in Yemen, willing to get involved in this war? There are approximately 40,000 US troops, right now in the Middle East, to what degree are they at risk? What are the prospects of this becoming a wider war?
Here to answer this and more is Ambassador Yoram Ettinger.
