Following the 50-day military conflict in 2014 between Israel and Hamas, Professor Alan Johnson delivered a powerful speech entitled, “Six Myths About Hamas” to give the audience some historical context. He is a senior research fellow at the Britain Israel Communications and Research Center and Editor of its publication, “Fathom.”

Following the October 7, 2023 deadly Hamas attacks on civilians in Israel, the unedited transcript of that speech was printed in “Fathom.” It has since been picked up and reprinted (with some edits for historical clarity) by The Free Press in the US.

With so much information and misinformation fanning flames, I like to research and learn for factual understanding and perspective. I invite you to read either or both for both enlightenment and clarity.
