Write up: Disarm Kōrero #19 Why Israel has lost the war in Gaza

April 29, 2024

On April 12th, the Disarmament and Security Centre held our #19 Disarm Kōrero session, led by guest speaker Professor Richard Jackson from the University of Otago. Professor Jackson drew from his background as a scholar in terrorism and he shared his reflections on the similarities between the Israeli response to the Hamas terrorist attack on October 7 and the US response to 9/11, and how the lessons of the war on terror have been completely ignored. We also discussed what Aotearoa, New Zealand could and should be doing in response to this situation.

We recorded Professor Jackson's address, which you can view through the Vimeo video below.
