What makes Hamas unique?

What is their ultimate goal?

Why did Hamas plan this attack now?

What should we watch for next? 

We explore these questions with leading terror expert and author Jonathan Schanzer, Vice President of Research at the nonpartisan think tank - Foundation For The Defense of Democracies. 

A Hebrew and Arabic speaker, Jonathan has spent his career researching terror groups, terror financing and how terrorism impacts policy around the world, and specifically in the Middle East. His most recent book examined specifically the relationship between Israel and Hamas: Gaza Conflict 2021: Hamas, Israel and Eleven Days of War.
