On October 7, 1,000 Hamas terrorists invaded Israel. Atrocities ensued against innocent civilian men, women, and children. Scores were abducted into Gaza. Israel has declared war and promised to utterly destroy Hamas and its infrastructure with an “unprecedented response.”

Yossie Hollander, Nathan Lewin, and Alex Traiman join Edwin, with additional reports from John Hajjar, Walid Phares, Marina Rosenberg, and Dor Weiss.

If conflict breaks out between Iran and Israel, Tehran will order Hezbollah to attack, dragging Lebanon into a ferocious—and tragic—war with the Jewish State. Israel has been preparing its next Lebanon battle for years. A combination of rapid new and massively more destructive weapons coordinated by artificial intelligence will make this war 10 times as intense as the last encounter. With Hezbollah embedding thousands of missiles in civilian locations, the fight will probably exceed the “laws of war” and devastate populated areas—which Iran desires. The Lebanese people will suffer most.

Eran Lerman, VP, the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security, John Hajjar, US director, World Council for the Cedars Revolution, Steven Emerson, founder of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, and JNS Jerusalem Bureau Chief Alex Traiman join Edwin to drill into the details.   

“Lebanon in Turmoil.” Lebanon has been wracked by civil war, Syrian occupation, Iranian intervention, wars with Israel, terrorism, political assassinations, and bankruptcy.
