In this episode of The Source, we speak with independent journalist, author and economist Dr. Shir Hever about the current conflict between Israel and Palestine. First, we inquire about who was behind the attacks on the al-Ahli Arab hospital that killed 500 Palestinian civilians seeking refuge. Then we discuss the situation in Gaza and whether Israel’s actions constitute genocide and collective punishment. We examine the role of the West and whether it has played a constructive or destructive role in this conflict. We assess why the Israeli military has not yet launched a ground invasion of Gaza and whether this move could trigger a regional war. Finally, we assess the significance of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden’s Oct. 7 tweet about the failure of the Israeli government under Benjamin Netanyahu to prevent this attack, despite exporting cutting-edge spying and surveillance technologies to despots around the world.
