Graphic Footage of Hamas’ Oct. 7 Israel Attacks to Screen in Hollywood and New York This Week

The video is being shared with members of the press and film industry by Israel’s national military

Official screenings of 47 minutes of footage showing graphic atrocities committed during Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel are being held in Los Angeles and New York this week. The footage is being shared by the Israel Defense Forces, the national military of Israel.

Invitees include select members of the press and the film industry. The screening has been labeled, “Bearing Witness to the October 7th Massacre.”

The footage is known to be violent, including video of murder, beheadings and rapes of Jewish people, according to media reports. Much of it was filmed by Hamas terrorists during their attack on Israel. The American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League are helping to organize the screenings.

Guy Nattiv, who directed the Golda Meir biopic “Golda” released earlier this year, shared a redacted image of the invitation on social media Sunday. He captioned his post, “Because the world needs to know. #neveragainisnow 💔”

While inviting in some members of the media to see the footage, the Israeli government recently denied a press credential to a reporter for Rolling Stone, saying that the often left-wing magazine is “not a news organization.” The magazine has a deep history of political reporting, going back more than 50 years. It is also a sister publication owned by Penske Media with several Hollywood trades.

The footage was first shown to a small group of international journalists outside Israel on Oct. 27. At that time, the country had no intention of releasing the footage publicly out of respect for the victims and their families.

For Israeli leaders, the primary motivation to share the footage is to respond to international criticism of its military’s actions in the Gaza Strip since Oct. 7. The 140.9 square mile region is currently experiencing a massive humanitarian crisis that has drawn condemnation from world leaders and citizens alike.

The footage depicts members of Hamas as they shoot Israeli families and individuals in their homes and set the homes they can’t infiltrate on fire. Other scenes show someone from Hamas standing on a man as he continues to shoot him; another shows the slow decapitation by garden hoe of a Thai worker.

The footage also spares no one. Children and adults are assaulted and attacked, and at one point a young boy asks, “Why am I alive? Why am I alive?” as militants from Hamas go through his refrigerator. His father had been killed by a grenade moments before.

The massacre at the Nova music festival is also in the film, including a shot of bodies in white body bags stacked alongside one another, as well as clips of Hamas firing into portable toilets and bomb shelters where Israelis were hiding.

    Hamas attack is atrocious. However, shown by fascist Netanyehu’s government is biased and ludicrous when in fact the Isreal army is using phosphorous gas to kill over 7500 innocent children and adults in Gaza. Bombing hospitals, schools, residential buildings which are blatant war crimes. Even Jewish Voices for Peace are against the Netaneyhu’s fascist totalitarian government and hainous genocide of the Palestinian peopel and Isreali’s alike. When in fact he did everything possible from erupting the peace talks decades ago which would have brought a Palestinina State and peace to the region. More ridicoulous is that the fact the from the time of Jesus Christ and evern before Jesus Christ the entire region was called Palestine, and Jews and Arabs alike leave in peace.  The meddling of the USA and European governments distabilized the region – pure propaganda. #CEASEFIREIMMEDIATELY #STOPTHEGENOCIDE #RELEASETHEHOSTAGES #STOPBOMBINGBABIES

      All we hear about is children, children, children. The children are the shields of notorious Hamas fighters. The kids are the pawns. I recall upon destroying 911 NY Towers the dancing, and singing by Palestinians. I can’t forget the joy in their eyes as victims jumped from the burning and demolishing Towers. That is human?

    I am against violence but can’t agree with you here. Hamas started this and set the tone. Now you are crying because Israel is retaliating? ALL the blame here lies with Hamas. They knew this would happen. They are the ones who put their own people in harms way.

      Thank you for your response. It’s always comforting to hear the voice of reason! But what is there for anyone to do? These Hamas people do not want any kind of peace; they are an evil people who have no regard for life…Who builds a terroristic organization’s headquarters & command-center-hub within & under those hospitals, schools and residential buildings???????
      Where is this going? It was all well-thought out in the first place down to the last detail & created so the problem could never have a solution! God help us!

    Bin Laden used 911 to shock the US into taking precipitous, rash, immensely huge violent reactions that would do great damage to the US, not only in the world at large, but in its own governance. He struck while we had and administration of fraudulent clowns in the White House. Of course, almost everyone with a poltical career in the US felt they had to join the idiot’s parade as we went to war against

    Hamas has followed that playbook, and done the same thing to Israel. The attack was sufficiently brutal, barbaric and massive to get Netanyahu and his coalition of screwball, incompetent and seditious Far Right clowns to respond with a stupidly reactive overkill that has wasted 10k Gazan lives, mostly civilians. This has engaged and enraged much of world opinion against Israel.

    Hamas leaders couldn’t be happier with the result. I was reading Ehud Omert’s critique of the current Israeli government, and this past PM of Israel hit the nail on the head. Netanyahu must be removed, and his coalition of Revanchists and Fascists relegated to the gallery. Negotiations for a Palestinian state must be begun in earnest with the PA. This would pull the rug out from under the feet of Hamas. Then the PA could be empowered to take on Hamas with the aid of all the Western world and no doubt, most of the Sunni Arab states as well. Gazans hate Hamas, and could be instigated to pour into the streets and push out the criminal gangsters who have been abusing them all these years.
    .

    Israel stepped right into the trap. The Oct 7th attack was made as awful, brutal and barbaric as possible to incite the Israeli govt to kill huge numbers of Gazans and thereby enlist the outrage of the world to advance Hamas’s goal…the destruction of Zionism and of the state of Israel.

    I propose that, instead of bombing the surface structures of Hamas’ installations, the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) start pumping acetylene gas into the tunnels of the terrorists. Acetylene is heavier than air and will settle to the lower chambers first, rising up displacing the air in the tunnel-systems. This will either drive out or suffocate the terrorists. And with an added heat source the acetylene can be ignited to clean out any resistance. Not to mention that that would also “clean out” (blow up) any tunnel-infrastructure under the area. Plus the ensuing smoke from the burnt acetylene will rise out of any other tunnel openings. The IDF can then locate and seal off these openings without too much incident.
    This can be a way to “protect the innocent victims” of the Hamas instigated war against Israel. After all New York City, NY, USA is using poisonous gas to eradicate the rodents & vermin from it’s tunnel systems.
    If it’s ok for the US to use poisonous gas in New York City; it’s ok for Israel to gas Gaza to get rid of its vermin problem.
    How many innocent lives will be spared while vermin are eliminated?
    Yes. I am for this tactic.

    Just flood the tunnels with the Mediterranean Sea and be done with Hamas in 48 hours.

    Will the public have access? I want to see. Jews made sure that ‘Night and Fog’ were kept available. This one should be too.
