The conflict between Israel and the terrorist group Hamas goes back decades. But earlier this year, an 11-day conflict between the two brought the eyes of the world back to the Middle East, where Hamas has resorted to using children in its campaign to destroy Israel.

“Hamas uses human shields on a regular basis,” terrorism expert Jonathan Schanzer says. “They actually send kids to the border fence with Israel and militants hide behind them.”

Schanzer, senior vice president for research at Foundation for Defense of Democracies and author of “Gaza Conflict 2021: Hamas, Israel and 11 Days of War,” has detailed the terrorist group’s ongoing campaign to obliterate the Jewish state.

Schanzer joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to break down those 11 days of conflict and discuss how America should be involved.
