Israel-Hamas War: Selected Texts, October 2023-present

Selected Texts on the Israel-Hamas War: Oct 2023 to the present

The outbreak of the Israeli-Hamas War in the wake of the massacre of approximately twelve hundred Israelis and other nationals, and the abduction of over two hundred others, on October 7, 2023 has put great stress on interfaith relations. Over 24,000 people, the vast majority Palestinians, have died in the conflict. A bewildering myriad of texts about the war have been published in the months since October 7th. This section of Dialogika assembles selected statements and opinion essays in an effort to at least partially present some of the wide variety of texts and viewpoints that have appeared, especially focusing on those involving interreligious relations. While not meant to be comprehensive, the list attempts to presents many points of view, some of them extreme or hyperbolic. The inclusion of particular items here implies neither agreement nor disagreement with them by the Council of Centers on Jewish-Christian Relations or Saint Joseph's University.
