PODCAST: Christian Just War Theory—Israel and Hamas

Christian just war theory addresses two questions:

  1. When is it right to fight?
  2. How do you rightly fight the fight?

Israel has shown great restraint in their conflict with Hamas. One government is doing everything they can to shield their people, while the other is using their people as shields.

Host Joseph Backholm is joined by Marc LiVecche, a Scholar of Ethics, War, and Public Life at Providence and a nonresident research fellow at the US Naval War College and FRC’s Quena Gonzalez to discuss the proportionality of the current war.

They take a deep dive into Israel’s reason to fight, the way they are fighting, and the overall goal to end this conflict.

The complexity of this situation has left many wondering who is to blame – listen now to unravel the web of this current war through a Christian lens.
