After the Attack on Israel

Making Sense of the Senseless

When terrorists attacked Israel on October 7, they raped, burned, killed—and then took hostages. Shockingly, many Americans are supportive of Hamas. Moody Radio presents, “After the Attack—Making Sense of the Senseless.” This one-hour documentary wrestles with the questions people on both sides of the conflict are asking—and concludes with a season of prayer. Guests include Joel Rosenberg, Amir Tsarfati, Tom Doyle, Charlie Dyer, Michael Rydelnik, and Justin Kron. Plus, we feature an eye-witness account of the attack from Israel.
