Ilene, Noah and Eilon discuss:

Is asymmetry the new black?
Israel is fighting the mother of all asymmetrical wars. Is Israel’s military superiority also its greatest weakness? Is Hamas’ weakness also its greatest strength?

Empathy for the 'devil'
Showing empathy for the suffering of the other side in these times of war should not be equated to Hamas-sympathizing.

Second thoughts on uprooting the family tree?
Watching funeral after funeral of young IDF soldiers causes us to reconsider the decision to uproot ourselves and our families and move to Israel.
