Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen condemned the decision not to screen the 43-minute video documenting the atrocities committed by Hamas on October 7 at the Belgian Parliament as it was shown to US Senators and Representatives yesterday (Tuesday).

"In your decision not to screen in parliament the video depicting the atrocities, the President of the Parliament of Belgium Eliane Tillieux is turning a blind eye to the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Hamas," Cohen stated

"This is not a propaganda video, rather it is a film created from footage shot by the terrorists themselves, that shows their indiscriminate slaughter of Israeli civilians.

"Turning a blind eye to Hamas’ crimes is tantamount to disregarding Israel's right to defend itself against a terrorist organization that is worse than ISIS.

"Hamas is guilty of instigating the war, in which the State of Israel is defending its citizens and is standing at the forefront of the Western world in the face of murderous terrorism," the Foreign Minister concluded.

Over 1,200 people were murdered by Hamas terrorists on the morning of October 7. In addition, about 240 people were taken hostage to Gaza.
