Things We Saw Today: Trevor Noah Attempts To Explain the Israel-Palestine Conflict

Recommended Videos

With recent violent escalations in the conflict between Israel and Palestine, there is a lot of information going around in the media, but also a reluctance to talk too much about a topic that has been so polarizing for over 70 years. Turning on mainstream television, I didn’t honestly expect to see anyone talk about this issue with empathy, but Trevor Noah continues to be one of the best at doing this work.

I highly recommend watching the full video because I think Noah does an excellent job in speaking about the power dynamics and humanity involved. Right now, the current death toll in Gaza has risen to 65 Palestinians, including 16 children and five women. At least six people have been killed on the Israeli side. Hundreds of Palestinians and Israelis have been wounded.

If you are looking for people to follow and listen to in order to be informed, I also recommend looking at people who are activists who care about the subject. Don’t Andrew Yang yourself.
