On October 7th, Israel experienced the most barbaric display of sadistic savagery since the days of the Holocaust, resulting in the death of at least 1200 people and the hostage-taking of 240 innocent civilians. Yet, by October 8th Students for Justice in Palestine were in full gear, in support of the Hamas terrorist attacks. Who is behind Students for Justice in Palestine? How have they been so effective in convincing our students about the justness of such brutality? How can this be fixed, so that our society does not become complacent to such acts of terrorism and savagery?
Here to answer these questions are Dan Diker and Khaled Abu Toameh.
