R abbi Abraham Cooper, the Simon Wiesenthal Center's associate dean gave an exclusive interview to Baku Tribune. - Why was there a conflict between Israel and Hamas? - Hamas miscalculated that Israelis are so divided politically, cannot form new government meant Israel was weakened. They were wrong military and intelligence planning was prepared for this moment. Secondly, there is general feeling around the world that US Administration is not projecting power at this time anywhere in the world so many local and regional conflicts are breaking out. This is especially true as Iran is the main sponsor funder and supplier of Hamas and its thousands of missiles. Ayatollah perceives a weakened US resolve so they gave green light to Hamas to attack. - The Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan invited his Russian counterpart to consider the issue of "creating an international force to protect the Palestinians." Do you think international forces can be deployed on the border of the two countries? - Zero chance. Never will Israel allow an armed international force including Erdogan who openly incites against Jewish state. - How, in your opinion, should the conflict between İsrael and Hamas be resolved? - Hamas must be crushed. Palestinians desperately need new leadership seeking peace with neighbor not is destruction. Anar Musayev
