  2. Hassan El-Tayyab, legislative director for Middle East policy with the Friends Committee on National Legislation, discusses the brutal Hamas attack on Israel, the deadly, massive retaliatory air strikes and bombing of Gaza by Israel, and concern that this conflict could spin out of control and spread to other nations, i.e. Lebanon, Iran.
