Very much like what has been happening with Armenia and Azerbaijan, why do Muslim nations including Iran, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Palestine, and many more utilize war, hate, and discrimination against non-Muslim minorities like that of Jews, Armenians, Assyrians, Kurds, and Yazidis to name a few?

I am struggling with this. All my friends, all leftists, do not believe that Israel is a state. I don't know how to feel as a Jew. They all believe it is "one big settlement which needs to be uprooted," all of these left-leaning people. Additionally, many of them are catholic and white.

How do we actually believe that there would be peace if an Islamic State took over the place for Israel when Hamas has come out and said they want the world rid of jews
Ethan Caine
44:56
For Miri- why are so many civilians getting killed in Gaza, and why is the death toll so one-sided on the Palestinian side? Is there any proof for the claims of human shields on the Hamas side?

I understand Hamas is a terrorist organization and terrorists do horrendous things, like bomb cities. but how do you justify the Israeli government (what you consider to not be a terrorist organization) bombing palestians and doing the same thing Hamas is?

Are Hamas, Fatah, and the PA on the same "side" in this conflict? Are they all working together to shoot the rockets, or is it mainly Hamas with support from the others?

For Khaled - why do the Gazans people still support Hamas? Under what conditions would they dump them and their ideology?
Sam Bagel Lerner
54:18
Given the current climate on social media, many have called Israel a settler colonialist country, an occupier and an apartheid state. Is there any validity to such claims, and in a conversation what should we really be saying if anything about these claims in a way that doesn't delegitimize both the Palestinian and Israeli experiences
Ashley Jones

What about when the Palestinian narrative has no room for another side?

Do you think that the relationship between Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis can be repaired?
Aaron Ocken
01:04:23
There seems to be a lot of talk about Hamas. Is there any criticism of Israel, how they have handled this situation and what Israel can do to lessen the rise of extremism in the Gaza strip
Hillel@Home Tech Support

**CC: delayed under the current circumstances
Ethan Caine
01:04:54
For all panelists - Why can we not negotiate with Hamas? You don’t make peace with your friends, by definition. If the Palestinian state is ruled by Hamas, who cares as long as Israel can protect itself?

For Miri - you said it's best to have conversations in person and not on Instagram, and I agree. But there's so much hate and misinformation being posted on Instagram - are you saying we shouldn't fight back? I'm having trouble figuring out if it makes sense to join the social media conversation or if it will only be harmful for all involved. Thank you.

For Khaled - how to do you react to persistent grievance among Palestinians about the refugee issue? To what extent does this keep Hamas in power? Is the refugee issue even possible to solve?
