Vocal Point-Rebecca Downs

Topic: The Israeli-Hamas Conflict.

America has a long history of allowing religious freedom, including for Jews. The U.S. was the first country to recognize Israel at its rebirth as a nation in 1948. But today, there is an all-out assault among Jews both in Israel near Gaza and even in America on some college campuses. Rebecca Downs who serves as web editor for Townhall Media attended a showing of uncut footage of what Hamas did to Israeli men, women, and children during the October 7th attack, and she wrote about the point that those who have seen the footage have an obligation to let others know about it. Her article is entitled, “’Believing and Declaring How Evil This Is’: The Duty of Those Who Watch Hamas Footage.” /// She writes, “On Tuesday, members of Congress viewed the footage, which House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) emphasized was ‘pure evil’ and described it as containing ‘truly unfathomable brutality committed by the hands of Hamas terrorists against Israelis.’ She also pointed out that the video is ‘a stark reminder that Israel is currently fighting not only for their right to exist but for the rights of Jewish people everywhere.’” Rebecca Downs of townhall.com joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss the October 7th attack against Israelis. www.townhall.com
