The whole world is watching Israel’s next moves in Gaza, particularly on the amplified information battleground of social media where images of civilian suffering and desolation abound. What is the ethical calculus at play for the IDF in continuing to conduct this war?

In this episode, Yehuda Kurtzer speaks to writer and philosopher Rabbi Shlomo Brody about the conflicting moral imperatives at play in Israel’s war with Hamas, social media during the fog of war, and where the Israeli perspective diverges from that of Jews in North America.

Mentioned in this episode:

·     Shlomo Brody’s recent book, Ethics of Our Fighters

·     And his WSJ op-ed, Rescue Israeli Hostages, but at What Cost?
