Tom Gross’s daily war report

October 16, 2023 • 10:40 am

I’m reproducing with permission Tom Gross‘s photo-and-video newsletter on the war, a newsletter that’s not publicly available. I’ve added links to the video descriptions to simplify matters, indented Gross’s text, and rearranged things slightly so all the videos at the bottom are together.

(Here is a clip of Hamas leaders in Qatar – the recent host of the World Cup – warmly welcoming the Iranian foreign minister on Friday evening who flew into congratulate them on their mass murder.)

Two tweets from Israelis:

The death toll in the Hamas terror attacks on Israel of October 7 has risen to over 1400, the overwhelming majority civilians, most of whom are young people, children or babies. Over 3600 people were injured.

Funerals and death announcements continue daily in Israel as the injured continue to die and more charred bodies are identified after they were burned alive by Hamas.

VIDEOS (Gross’s bolding)

I know everyone is busy, but I would suggest you watch all three of these short videos if you can.

YUVAL NOAH HARARI TELLS HIS 650 MILLION INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS: PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE SITUATION

Best-selling author Yuval Noah Harari to readers abroad: please understand what Israel is up against

Tom Gross writes:

Yuval Noah Harari, the well-known Israeli author, public intellectual, historian and professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, pleads with his 650 million Instagram followers around the world to understand what Israel is facing. Harari’s aunt and uncle as well as friends of his lived in Kibbutz Beeri and people he knew were killed, injured, decapitated or raped by Hamas.

He is the author of several bestselling books including “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” and “Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow”. In the past he has been a fierce critic of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

BBC uses the worst attack on Jews since the Holocaust to spread antisemitic conspiracy theories

In this video, Joseph Cohen demolishes the BBC’s hypocrisy and bigotry.

Hamas film babies after shooting their parents

Hamas films babies after shooting their parents in their homes, then kills some kids, kidnaps others

This short video, a few seconds long, is NOT as hard to watch as it sounds (the gruesome parts have been removed) but I have posted this footage — filmed by Hamas itself — to show their absolute insanity and obscenity — and yet they have defenders not just on the streets of London and New York, but among some of America’s academics and teachers.

This essay which I wrote almost 20 years ago seems almost as relevant today as it did then, and explains some of the “ethics” of the BBC newsroom:

There are no hostages “on both sides” as the media claim

  1. You think things are bad enough with the wretched BBC here in the UK?
    “I wanted a process which ended the Israeli occupation of Palestine”.
    For those of you who are unaware of who might have been PM in the UK at our last General Election, the above is a direct quote (a couple of days ago – link below) from Jeremy Corbyn MP, in direct response to the question as to why he won’t condemn Hamas. A former leader of the Labour party (though still an MP he was evicted from that Parliamentary Party for his ant-semitic ‘views’ (views which he denies holding) and for some on the political far left, a ‘Messiah’ (‘JC’ ?) like figure, who was mercifully ‘thrashed’ in the 2019 General Election, though still has a toxic presence here and is ever quick to speak at pro-palestine rallies, which shockingly in our Cities here are well attended (He has aims to be Mayor of London, a position currently held by a muslim, as is the SNP leader in Scotland, whose wife’s parents currently happen to be stuck in Gaza).

      I saw the contrasting aerial photos of London the other day but hadn’t been able to find it again. Those images say it all.

  2. Photos of London: it does not superficially seem to be the same place. Even if it is, it is not to be surprising that a photo taken of a demonstration shows more people than otherwise. Business and government office areas do not have a heavy footfall normally outside the start or finishing of work times, unless they are also tourist area.

    Official efforts seem to be dealing with the outbreak of anti-semitic acts associated with schools and synagogues. And there are reports of anti muslim activity too.
