CPOST Director on Way Forward in War Between Israel and Gaza: CNN

Wed., Nov. 01, 2023    

In a CNN op-ed, CPOST Director Robert Pape argues "There's a smarter way to defeat Hamas." Pape explains why "Israel’s strategy for defeating Hamas — destroying its military and political capabilities to the point where the terrorist group can never again launch major attacks against Israeli civilians — is unlikely to work." "To defeat terrorist groups like Hamas," Pape writes, "it is important to separate the terrorists from the local population from which they emerge. Otherwise, the current generation of terrorists can be killed, only to be replaced by a new, larger generation of terrorists in the future."
