Mindy Isser, an organizer and activist in Philly, joins us to discuss the actions in Pennsylvania calling for John Fetterman to support a ceasefire. From there we discuss how some members of the Jewish community have weaponized grief from the Oct. 7 Hamas attacks to justify Israel’s indiscriminate bombing of Gaza, which as of now has claimed 7,000 lives including 3,000 children.
[Note: We had a bit of trouble with some of the audio. While we were able to edit around some of it, at other points we couldn’t without compromising the integrity of the statement. We’re sorry about the issue.]
