Israel-Hamas War: Norman Finkelstein vs Rabbi Shmuley

Season 7, Ep. 3

Israel says Hamas has just weeks to release all remaining hostages before it launches a deadly assault on the Gazan city of Rafah.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has rejected the latest round of negotiations as “delusional.”

But with the Palestinian death toll now exceeding 29,000, pressure on Israel is mounting.

Brazil’s President Lula said it’s not a war in Gaza, but a genocide.

Is he right? 

And is it time for Israel to end this war?

We’ve invited two of our most passionate contributors to discuss.

I'm joined by the American-Jewish Political Scientist, Norman Finkelstein and author Rabbi Shmuley Boteach
