Is the Israel/Hamas Hostage Deal More Problematic Than It Appears? (Guest: David Rubin)
Former Mayor of Shiloh David Rubin discusses the big problems that could arise from the newly found hostage deal between Israel and Hamas.

Despite an ongoing battle that has since cost thousands of lives, Israel and Hamas have come to a temporary truce, one that will see the release of over 50 hostages over the course of the next few days.

The deal was approved following much deliberation within Israel’s cabinet, though Prime Minister Netanyahu says that after the pause, the Israel Defense Forces will continue the mission to “complete the eradication of Hamas”.

However, some critics believe this temporary truce could create some problems, as it gives Hamas potential time it needs to plot potential booby traps or, worse, a counterattack. It also creates a political dynamic and pressure on Israel that may not be reversible.

Among those who feel this way is David Rubin, the former Mayor of Shiloh. Considering that he’s seeing what’s happening in Israel at this moment, he provides some much-needed perspective on this subject. We welcome him to our studio.
