What Issues Will This Panel Discuss?

With the unprecedented terrorist attacks on Oct 7, the world was reminded of the fight for survival Israel has faced since the day it was founded. Sympathies from around the world poured in. But within a few months, much of the world’s public opinion has turned against the homeland of the Jewish people. Our panel will help an international audience understand the enormous security challenges that Israel is defending itself against. Moreover, the panel will not miss to shed light on the daily protests within Israel. Even other democracies have little experience with protests while the country is at war, and it showcases the maturity of Israeli democracy and freedom of speech.
