“The horrors cannot be described in words – but it will stay with me for the rest of my life,” said Labor Party MP Preet Gill.

A now infamous video documenting the October 7th Hamas invasion of southern Israel and subsequent massacres was screened for members of Britain’s Parliament last Wednesday.

The graphic 47-minute video presents evidence of the atrocities committed by Gazans on Israeli civilians and soldiers during the surprise terror attack on October 7th.

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

The documentary has been shown selectively to various groups, including the Israeli Knesset, the U.S. House of Representatives, groups of foreign journalists operating in Israel, and Hollywood celebrities, among others.

The images of the carnage wreaked in the Palestinian attack are so brutal that viewers have reacted with extreme emotions. Many are unable to sit through the screening, others cry, or even faint. Many require counselling and/or medication to enable them to cope with the psychic trauma evoked by the film.

Over 1,200 Israelis, most of them civilians, were slaughtered after Gaza terrorists breached the border fence in more than 30 places, overrunning IDF positions and seizing control of frontier towns.

More than 240 were taken hostage into Gaza for use as bargaining chips and human shields in the conflict, their fate still unknown, with, as yet, no investigation by the International Red Cross, the UN, or any other humanitarian agency.

Only some 70 British parliamentarians were present at the screening, a small percentage of the House of Common’s 650 MPs and over 800 Peers of the House of Lords. Those who watched were visibly affected.

“It’s horrible to witness what happened. The barbarism, the cruelty… this is real terrorism,” said MP Bob Blackman of the Conservative Party.

“The horrors cannot be described in words – but it will stay with me for the rest of my life,” said Labor Party MP Preet Gill. “What I saw was extremely difficult. People were… slaughtered and murdered in cold blood in front of their families. Also, the glorification of the murder (by the Palestinian terrorists) – and the celebrations following it – were very difficult to watch.”

Oren Marmorstein, Israel’s Deputy Ambassador to Great Britain, also present, commented: “It is our duty to testify about the brutal crimes committed by the terrorist organization Hamas. This is not a war for land, this is a war for humanity.”

The screening was organized by the London Israeli Embassy, together with the Britain-Israel Parliamentary Group.
