You could hear the insane joy through the phone. A young man standing at the Mefalsim kibbutz called his parents in Gaza to brag about the murder of 10 Jews on October 7. They were elated.
That was just one episode in a harrowing 47-minute compilation of recordings and videos from that horrible day I saw in a Tel Aviv hospital during a recent trip with my wife, Dina, to Israel. A father executed in cold blood in front of his children. Entire families burned alive in their homes. Women staggering and bleeding through their clothing after being raped. Decapitations. Baby after baby, sacrificed. It is not possible to view these images without concluding that Hamas must be wiped off the face of the planet.
