Israel, despite the warnings of the West, sent in its military to strike Rafah to root out the remainder of Hamas terrorists.

And for that, the Jewish state is being treated as a pariah by governments around the world.

But as Gol Kalev, author of “Judaism 3.0” says, let’s remember who’s the victim here. It was Israel who was attacked on October 7, 2023, by Hamas; had the terrorists not struck, the IDF would never have been unleashed on Gaza.

Between Iran’s recent attacks on Israel — and the West’s expressions of sorrow for the sudden death of Iran’s president — and the international courts calling for the arrests of both Hamas leaders and Benjamin Netanyahu, as if both terrorists and Jewish people are moral equivalents, Israel is feeling a rise of hostility and an escalation of tensions.

Tune in and hear more of Gol Kalev on the latest from Israel, and how the Jewish people are faring in these perilous times of war.
