I had to wait two hours to report this to you.
I know that's a long time in our news cycle, but sometimes, it's important to wait with horrific stuff like that. We've replaced God with shock and sensationalism and we here at Not The Bee don't want to be part of that, especially when fake testimonies about murdered babies have been used to sway public opinion on war (see: The First Gulf War).
With that said, this is what is being said across every newsfeed at the current moment:
[Graphic descriptions ahead]
Israeli military forces reportedly discovered at least 40 babies that were brutally murdered by Palestinian terrorists in a kibbutz in southern Israel after they drove the terrorists out of the area.
Israeli-based i24 News correspondent Nicole Zedeck, reporting from Kfar Aza, said it was "hard to even explain exactly the mass casualties that happened right here."
Zedeck said she saw "baby cribs thrown to the side" and "strollers left behind" after upwards of 70 terrorists stormed the community on Saturday, slaughtering entire families and taking numerous hostages. In a kibbutz, babies are typically all housed together in one nursery.
A kibbutz is a communal farming model that's been around for a century or so. These rural villages work the land together and care for each other's children.
There were reportedly 40 babies and young children who were killed in the nursery. IDF Major General Itai Veruv called it a "massacre," noting how the children and parents were killed in their beds.
The Daily Wire story has a picture that was released by Israeli photographer Tomer Peretz showing a bloody child's bed. I won't show it here because it is too graphic. Nor will I show the full picture of infant car seats with blood over them.
On one hand, there is a need for prudence here. It is easy to manipulate emotions in the fog of war, and some men will do anything for blood and treasure. I have no doubt that, like Ukraine, there are some in the Israeli military who would stoop to low measures - the same measures Hamas does with its sympathy theater - to try to compete with the terrorists' fundraising scheme that was perfected by Yasser Arafat back in the day.
On the other hand, you can't simply ignore these reports. They are going to sway people's emotions, whether you remain aloof or not. Put it into the light and investigate it.
Here's the on-the-ground reporting for you to do that yourself (no blood is shown here):
As you might expect is the norm across the uber-leftist mainstream media, an LA Times "journalist" immediately downplayed the report:
Here were a few replies:
"Clown" is too honorable a title to describe this guy.
One more bit from The Daily Wire:
More than 900 Israelis have been killed and 2,600 more injured from the terrorist attacks. At least 11 Americans were killed, and it is believed that Americans are among those who were kidnapped and are being held hostage inside Gaza.
I assume the president of the United States will comment or do something about that soon?
