Ari Shavit on October 7 as a historical turning point

Political analyst Shavit discusses the immeasurable, long-lasting consequences this war will have for Israel and the Western world

The Hamas massacre on October 7th shattered something fundamental about the Zionist ethos. We believed that Israel had finally prevailed over the existential threats it had dealt with since its founding and that the state of Israel was the safest place in the world for Jews to live as Jews.

That massacre was a turning point. When historians write about the events that began to unfold on that day, October 7th will be the demarcation line between what came before and what comes after.

To discuss the immeasurable and long-lasting effects of this war, we talk with one of Israel’s most astute political analysts. Ari Shavit has written dozens of opinion pieces in Israel and the Western world’s leading media outlets. A regular on Israeli national television and international news programs, he is also the author of the acclaimed book, “My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel.”
