Tony Blair was the speaker in the second lecture of University at Buffalo’s 23rd Distinguished Speaker Series on October 7th. Senior Political Science major, Nicolas Kabat, asks him about the Gaza War during the lecture’s question and answer session:

“UN investigation found that Israel and Hamas committed war crimes and crimes against humanity in the recent Gaza conflict. Yet the US and Israel insist that the report was biased, and proceeding with the Committees recommendations would be harmful to the peace process. Why is international law not applied in this case, when the evidence exists? And please explain, as Quartet Envoy, why the application of international law would be harmful to the overall peace process, and furthermore, why the siege on Gaza is not similarly deemed harmful to the peace process. Thank you.”
