Israel Needs to Shock the World by Sharing the Hamas Massacre Footage
Many players, whether representatives of the Israeli government, the army, or the many volunteers and Jewish leaders, have been trying to organize private showings of the IDF Spokesperson’s documentation of Hamas’s terrible massacre on October 7, for influencers around the globe.
The film, some 40 minutes long, has caused parliamentarians worldwide to burst into tears after seeing it and has been widely regarded as highly impactful; three hours of discussion followed one screening for Americans.
The IDF film, titled “Hamas Massacre – Collected Raw Footage, Oct. 7, 2023,” features a combination of footage from various sources, including GoPro body cameras worn by the terrorists themselves, dashcams from the cars of both terrorists and civilians, closed-circuit television recordings, cellphone footage, and more.
But the question arises: Why was the movie shown only to small audiences of influencers or decision-makers? The hype and secrecy surely add to the intrigue and interest, but on the other hand, Hamas and its proxies continue to publish real, as well as fake, footage daily, of the Gaza ruins and those who were killed or injured by IDF attacks.
The understanding has been that the families of those killed and/or kidnapped vetoed opening the screening to all, or airing it on social media, for millions to see. Israel, as opposed to any of its Middle Eastern neighbors, is a democracy and also respects the privacy of its citizens.
Therefore, it may be commendable that Israel has listened to the families whose lives were destroyed on October 7; but it may also be what’s causing Israel to lose the lead in the international arena. (JPost / VFI News)
