While many are focusing on the Israeli intelligence failures that contributed to the massacre of 1,400 Israeli Jews and the kidnapping of more than 200 hostages by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists, Iranian-funded and -enabled terror proxies have been preparing and planning their invasion of Israel for quite some time, all while the United States and international community have empowered the Islamic Republic’s brazen aggression and disregard for humanitarian norms.
Iran’s involvement in this war cannot be ignored, much as the Biden administration would like to. The U.S. policy of appeasement also cannot be ignored, beginning with the early days of the Obama administration through the current term of the Biden administration, leading to the conclusion that the United States, too, bears some responsibility for the atrocities committed against Israel’s citizens.
Join us for an in-depth conversation with the always brilliant and insightful Caroline Glick to discuss U.S. policy failures in the lead-up to the Oct. 7 atrocities and current policy failures that are already playing out as the State of Israel fights for its life.
