On Saturday, former President Barack Obama said that "nobody's hands are clean," when it comes to the war between Israel and Hamas that began after the organization's Oct. 7 terrorist attack on the Jewish nation.
In a promotional clip with the Pod Save America podcast, the former president refused to take sides in the conflict. He condemned Hamas for its actions, but added that "what is happening to Palestinians is unbearable."
Obama noted the history of antisemitism that the Jewish people have faced, which many young people may "dismiss" unless it's explained by an older relative who lived it. He said that activism won't solve the problem and "If you want to solve the problem, then, you have to take in the whole truth, and you then have to admit nobody's hands are clean, that all of us are complicit to some degree."
