The talk will survey the recent history of the Israeli-Hamas conflict leading to the tragic events of October 7th, 2023. It will focus on Hamas’s emergence as a significant political force, the (non)formation of Israeli policies to counter challenges from radical factions in the Gaza Strip, and the character of the military engagements there. An overarching motif of the talk will be the prospect of Israel upholding liberal values while navigating the treacherous waters of its geopolitical challenges.
