‘Evil that defies words’ – Footage of Hamas atrocities screened in US Senate

40 senators watch film documenting horrors of Hamas invasion.

Susan Tawil, World Israel News

A bi-partisan gathering of 40 members of the U.S .Senate met on Tuesday to screen the now-notorious documentary of the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel.

The video was compiled by the Israel Defense Force (IDF) from security footage, body-cam evidence, and the social media postings of the terrorists, gathered from the massacre.

The graphic 47-minute video presents evidence of the atrocities on Israeli civilians committed during the surprise terror attack.

The film has been shown selectively to various groups, such as members of Knesset (Israeli Parliament), the British Parliament, hand-picked groups of journalists, and groups of Hollywood celebrities, among others.

It was viewed by about 150 members of the US House of Representatives two weeks ago (Nov 14).

Senators Jacky Rosen (D-NV) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) arranged the screening for the Senate, together with Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Herzog.

Rosen, who is Jewish, released a statement in advance of the viewing, describing the Oct 7 attack by the Gaza Palestinians as “the worst terrorist attack in Israel’s history—the single deadliest day for the Jews since the Holocaust.”

She went on to explain the purpose of the screening: “Given the effort by some individuals and organizations around the world to distort and deny what happened that day, it was important that, as policymakers, we bear witness to the full extent of the atrocities committed by Hamas.”

She hoped that the video would convince the Senate to support a $14 billion emergency aid package to Israel.

On the early morning of Oct 7, thousands of Palestinian terrorists broke through Israel’s security fence and, in a well-planned, pre-meditated attack, invaded sleeping Israeli towns adjacent to the Gaza border, as well as a neighboring music festival.

There, they savagely murdered over 1,200 Israelis, most of them civilians.

The terrorists also raped, tortured, mutilated, and burned alive terrified border town residents and concert-goers with unspeakable cruelty.

Thousands of Israelis were wounded, and some 240 were taken hostage back to Gaza for use as bargaining chips and human shields.

The images revealed in the video are so brutal that they are difficult to watch. Many of the Senators were stunned into silence, and left the viewing pale and unable to comment to reporters waiting outside.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) commented to reporters later that day about the impact of watching the video. “It was jarring and harrowing,” he said. “It shook all of us up in the room. I had to go sit in my office for a half-hour alone after seeing it.”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) told reporters: “There is a level of evil and hate and depravity that defies words, and it is astonishing that there are still some in America and across the globe who deny these atrocities occurred.”

Senator Rubio remarked on the importance of seeing the video in real time, while Israel’s battle to eliminate the Hamas terror group is still raging: “I think it’s really important not to sanitize this over time,” he said. Aside from the raw carnage, what the Senator said stunned him the most was witnessing the jubilation of the perpetrators in their acts of evil: “the glee and the joy and the pride that the people involved in these horrifying crimes took in what they were doing.”

Viewing the IDF video reinforced the determination of Senator Thom Tillis (R, NC) to back Israel politically.

Posting on X after the screening, he wrote: “Today, my Senate colleagues and I watched footage of the devastation caused by Hamas’ horrific terrorist attack against Israel…What we saw was not for the faint-hearted. Hamas is pure evil and must be destroyed. Hamas has made it clear that they will stop at nothing to eliminate Israel and its people. As Israel’s longtime ally and friend, we must do everything we can to support its efforts to defend itself and destroy Hamas.”

Top CIA official under fire for ‘Free Palestine’ posts

US spy agency warns employees to stay away from politics.

Susan Tawil, World Israel News

A senior CIA official is under fire for posting pro-Palestinian social media posts following the Hamas invasion of Israel.

Amy McFadden, the Associate Deputy Director for Analysis at the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), is one of the agency’s highest-ranking officials.

She attracted media attention when, two weeks after the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel, she changed the cover photo of her personal Facebook account to that of a young man waving a Palestinian flag.

The Financial Times first reported the incident, and the CIA, via an internal email, warned its employees against sharing political messages on social media.

McFadden’s pro-Palestinian postings have since been deleted.

McFadden began her career at the CIA 24 years ago.

Her job as associate deputy director is one of the top posts at the CIA.

She is one of three people responsible for approving all intelligence information disseminated inside the agency. She was previously responsible for submitting the “daily brief” to the President, a summary of the day’s classified intelligence.

Beginning over a year ago, McFadden stepped over the line of the impartiality expected by the nation’s premier espionage organization when she posted a selfie on her Facebook account with a “Free Palestine” sticker superimposed.

Last week, her LinkedIn page showed her support for the anti-Israel International Crisis Group, a non-profit with ties to the Iranian government.

The post McFadden “liked” was an article criticizing Israel for “making the utter defeat of Hamas its top priority.”

Several former CIA officials expressed concern that McFadden’s posts demonstrated bias that could undermine the agency.

An unnamed source, familiar with the situation, maintains that McFadden has “extensive background in all aspects of the Middle East” and that her postings were “not intended to express a position on the conflict.”

In an emailed statement about the situation, a CIA spokesperson said: “CIA officers are committed to analytic objectivity, which is at the core of what we do as an Agency…CIA officers may have personal views, but this does not lessen their—or CIA’s—commitment to unbiased analysis.”

McFadden has thus far faced no repercussions for her actions. The CIA has not said whether she would be disciplined or fired.

Blinken meets Netanyahu and Israel’s war cabinet

The Israeli prime minister thanked the top U.S. diplomat for his support ‘in the war of eliminating Hamas and securing the release of our hostages.’

By JNS

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hosted U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken at his office in Jerusalem on Thursday afternoon.

It is the fourth time the top U.S. diplomat has visited the Jewish state since the war against Hamas began on Oct. 7.

In a video published following the sit-down, Netanyahu noted that the meeting with Biden took place “shortly after Hamas murderers murdered Israelis here in Jerusalem.

“This is the same Hamas that carried out the horrible massacre on Oct. 7, the same Hamas that tries to murder us everywhere. I told him: We swore, and I swore, to eliminate Hamas. Nothing will stop us,” said Netanyahu.

“We will continue this war until we achieve the three goals—to release all our abductees, to eliminate Hamas completely and to ensure that Gaza will never again face such a threat,” the prime minister added.

Blinken joined Netanyahu and the other War Cabinet members for a meeting.

“I want to express our appreciation for your support from the beginning: the president, you personally, the delegation, in the war of eliminating Hamas and securing the release of our hostages. You’ve been very helpful. We appreciate it deeply,” Netanyahu said at the start of the meeting.

“And of course, I’d like to talk to you about the next phase.”

On the American agenda was discussion about a further extension of the ceasefire and ways to free more hostages from the Gaza Strip. The current 24-hour extension expires on Friday morning.

In addition to the War Cabinet members Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Minister-without-Portfolio Benny Gantz, the meeting also included Strategic Affairs Minister Ron Dermer, Minister-without-Portfolio Gadi Eizenkot, MK Aryeh Deri, the prime minister’s chief of staff, Tzachi Braverman, IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi, the prime minister’s military secretary, Maj. Gen. Avi Gil, National Security Council Deputy Director Gil Reich and Cabinet Secretary Yossi Fuchs.

Representing the American side were Ambassador to Israel Jack Lew, Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Barbara Leaf, State Department Counselor Derek Chollet and Special Envoy for Middle East Humanitarian Issues David Satterfield.

The secretary of state also met with Israeli President Isaac Herzog in Tel Aviv on Thursday.

At the start of their meeting, Herzog commented on the terrorist attack in Jerusalem earlier in the day, saying “it is another example of the situation we’re in, the endless war that we are fighting against terror organizations, especially Hamas, in these very complicated and challenging times.”

Blinken began his remarks by talking about the Jerusalem attack.

“And, as you said, we’re reminded yet again by the events in Jerusalem today of the threat from terrorism that Israel and Israelis face every single day. Like you, my heart goes out to the victims of this attack.”

Blinken noted the “positive developments” in freeing Israeli hostages from Gaza and how the ceasefire has allowed more humanitarian aid into the Strip.

“I look forward to detailed conversations with the Government of Israel about the way ahead in Gaza. The United States firmly supports Israel and its right to defend itself and to try to ensure that October 7 never happens again,” he said.

Both leaders acknowledged the death of former U.S. secretary of state Henry Kissinger at the age of 100.

During a subsequent meeting with Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, Blinken brought up “ongoing efforts to accelerate the delivery of humanitarian assistance to Gaza, including through maximizing humanitarian pauses,” according to a State Department readout.

Blinken and Abbas also discussed “the urgent need for measures to improve security and freedom” for Palestinians in Judea and Samaria. “The secretary reiterated that the United States remains committed to advancing tangible steps for a Palestinian state,” added Washington.

Blinken arrived in the region after attending meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday in Brussels and Skopje, North Macedonia, where NATO foreign ministers and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) discussed the situation in Ukraine.

While in Brussels, Blinken dodged a question from a New York Times reporter about the possibility of Israel’s offensive against Hamas not resuming at all.

“We’d like to see the pause extended because what it has enabled first and foremost is hostages being released, coming home, being reunited with their families. It’s also enabled us to surge humanitarian assistance into the people of Gaza, who so desperately need it,” said Blinken. “So its continuation, by definition, means that more hostages would be coming home, more assistance would be getting in.”

The American diplomat then turned to the idea of a two-state solution, which he noted the Biden administration has characterized from the start as “the only path to enduring peace; to enduring security; to the preservation of Israel as a strong, secure, democratic and Jewish state; and Palestinians having their legitimate aspirations for a state and self-determination met.

“The events of Oct. 7 only further confirm that commitment,” he said.

Also on Wednesday, Netanyahu said that Israel would resume attacking Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

“There is no way we are not going back to fight to the end,” the prime minister said. “This is my policy, the entire Cabinet stands behind it, the entire government stands behind it, the soldiers stand behind it, the people stand behind it—this is exactly what we will do.”

Two Israeli women released from Gaza

Mia Shem and Amit Soussana transferred to IDF, with eight more hostages poised for release Thursday night.

By World Israel News Staff

Two Israeli women were released from their captivity in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip and returned to Israel via the International Red Cross, as part of the seventh tranche of hostage releases.

Amit Soussana, 40, and Mia Shem, 21, were handed over to the Red Cross Thursday evening, before being driven across the border from Gaza into Egypt at the Rafah crossing, where they were turned over to the custody of the Israeli military.

Shem, a dual Israeli-French citizen, was featured in a Hamas hostage video in late October, showing her receiving medical treatment for an injured arm.

In the video, Shem pleaded for Israeli leaders to ensure her safe return home.

“I just ask to return home, get me out of here as quickly as possible,” she said.

Shem was abducted during the Hamas attack on the Supernova festival outside of Re’im on October 7th, while Soussana, an attorney, was kidnapped from her house in Kfar Aza.

Eight more Israeli captives are expected to be released Thursday night.

According to an Israeli official cited in a report by CNN, unlike previous hostage releases, the captives being freed Thursday were held in different locations, resulting in a staggered release Thursday night.

Shem’s brother, Uri, told Yediot Aharonoth that his mother, Keren Shem, was ecstatic upon receiving the news of her daughter’s release.

“Mom opened the door screaming Mia was coming home.”

“We have been waiting for this moment for two months have prepared for an indefinite wait,” another sibling said.

“Now is the time and there is not much to say. The past days during hostages releases, have meant sleepless nights. I only managed to fall asleep at seven and when we heard the news, everyone has been calling me. It is happiness I cannot even express.”

Sinwar: ‘Oct. 7th was just a rehearsal’

After his release from prison, Sinwar gained power and popularity within Hamas, becoming its Gaza leader in February 2017 by defeating Ismail Haniyeh in an internal vote.

By JNS

Hamas’s Oct. 7 slaughter was “just a rehearsal,” the Islamist group’s leader in Gaza Yahya Sinwar threatened on Thursday, in his first public statement since the terrorist organization massacred more than a thousand people in Israel.

“The leaders of the occupation [Israel] should know, Oct. 7 was just a rehearsal,” stated Sinwar, according to the Maariv newspaper.

At least 1,200 people were killed in Hamas’s Oct. 7 attacks on Israeli communities near the Gaza border. Another 240 men, women, children, and soldiers were taken back to Gaza as hostages.

On Monday, Israeli media reported that Sinwar paid a visit to several of the hostages held in an underground tunnel in the Strip. One of the hostages released over the weekend said the terror mastermind spoke to them in Hebrew without an accent.

As Israel and Hamas agreed to extend their ceasefire-for-hostages agreement on Monday, Egypt reportedly put heavy pressure on Sinwar.

“Twice during the ceasefire the parties got into a crisis when Yahya Sinwar tried to violate the agreements, the first time last Saturday night,” said an Egyptian source with access to official circles in Cairo.

“Egyptian intelligence officers arrived at the Rafah Crossing [to Gaza] and conveyed to Sinwar extremely difficult messages and threats peppered with juicy curses. A short hour later … the Israeli hostages were released,” the source added.

On Oct. 14, Israel Defense Forces International Spokesperson Lt. Col. Richard Hecht told journalists that Sinwar and his entire command team “are in our sights.”

“Yahya Sinwar is the face of evil. He is the mastermind behind this, like [Osama] bin Laden was. He built his career on murdering Palestinians when he understood they were collaborators. That’s how he became known as the butcher of Khan Yunis [in southern Gaza],” said Hecht.

Sinwar was convicted on multiple murder counts by an Israeli court and sentenced to five life sentences, which he was supposed to serve until his death, but in October 2011 he was released from prison—having served only 22 years—as part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange.

After his release, Sinwar gained power and popularity within Hamas, becoming its Gaza leader in February 2017 by defeating Ismail Haniyeh in an internal vote.
