EDITOR'S NOTE: The following series, titled "Shabbat HaSh'chora" or "Black Saturday," depicts the events of October 7, 2023, when Palestinian militants from Hamas, along with other groups and civilians, invaded Israel and proceeded to systematically kill civilians, including women, children, the elderly, and babies. They engaged in acts of rape, pillaging, and plundering as they moved through several Israeli communities close to the Gaza border.
When all was said and done, more than 1,400 people lost their lives. Over 245 hostages were taken, some deceased and some still alive.
The Judean has decided to run this series with a heavy heart. There is an abundance of misinformation circulating about what transpired, including claims that it never occurred or that Israeli forces were responsible. Social media channels have systematically removed all videos depicting that day, whether they were redacted, blurred, or edited to minimize the graphic content.
This series is not for the faint of heart; however, it is a must-see for all those who doubt the barbaric nature of the Palestinians in Gaza, including those who support Hamas and those who, from the videos, appear to rejoice in these events. The Judean invites anyone who wishes to use these videos to dispel the lies and misinformation surrounding that dark day, one that witnessed more Jews suffering in horrific ways than since the Holocaust.
PART 5: The reality is that many Palestinian civilians were involved on October 7th. Some came to steal items ranging from motorcycles and heavy farm equipment to televisions and children's toys. Others came with intentions to kill, kidnap, and commit acts of rape.
WARNING: This video contains extremely graphic content. It depicts a massacre of Thai workers and the beheading of a man who is still visibly moving at the start of the clip. It also shows the brutal nature of the massacre itself - roving bands of terrorists and civilians shooting at anything they encountered, even those who were already deceased. They hunted as if Israelis were their prey and then systematically looted the pockets of the deceased, making off with their belongings.
The purpose of this installment is to highlight the involvement of ordinary Palestinians, including some who brought their children along to participate in the crimes of that day. Throughout the video, you will hear Palestinians shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is great) while committing unspeakable crimes. The end of this video poses a question that every Western society needs to address, and it's a question that anyone tearing down posters of hostages should be answering.
