After the Gaza Conflict: Hamas’ Goals, Military Capabilities, and Financial Networks

Please join us for a panel discussion and conversation with Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS), Dr. Matthew Levitt, Dan Moger, Dr. Jonathan Schanzer, Dr. Samuel Tadros, and Jeffrey White.


Rosie Gray, reporter for BuzzFeed, will serve as moderator

What, if anything, can Washington do to prevent a resurgence of Hamas in the Middle East?
