There is breaking news every hour when it comes to the evolving situation in Israel. We learn more about how the Israeli government is responding to the attacks, how the United States is responding, and what this means for the broader geopolitical situation.
These developments are rapidly taking us forward, and into new narratives about what happens next. But it’s important that we don’t lose sight of the horrors that happened—a series of terror attacks against Israeli civilians that’s been rightly labelled as their 9/11.
While we continue to have breaking news about official responses, we also learn more details about the true extent and nature of what Hamas did in those initial assaults.
The cruelty and depravity of the attacks must be understood by all and not forgotten. This was the targeted butchering of hundreds, including children. This time was very different from past flareups in the region.
