The Hamas Attack of October 7 and its Aftermath

The brutality of Hamas violence shocked the world, while the scope of the Israeli campaign in Gaza continues to have political reverberations, in international politics and in Washington, let alone in the demonstrations on campuses of American universities. Calls for establishing a Palestinian state abound, although with little attention given to the character such a state may have. The contributors to this Caravan ponder the confusion and chaos.
