Allowed the attack, Hannibal directive, Propaganda and the Brutality

Parking lot of Nova music festival (Supernova Sukkot Gathering) after attack.  Critics point to the fact that Hamas did not have the weapons to inflict this damage.  The Hannibal directive allows the IDF to kill their own citizens rather than allow them to be take hostage.  Image via twitter/X.  Likely source for photo credit is Maio Nawfal via twitter/X. 

During this past week, more evidence has emerged that Israel allowed the attacks of October 7th to happen, that Israel military enacted the Hannibal directive which allows them to kill their own soldiers and citizens rather than allow them to be taken hostage, and that the propaganda regarding dead babies and rape stories are not true.

Additionally, the Lancet reports that by “applying a conservative estimate of four indirect deaths per one direct death to the 37396 deaths reported, it is not implausible to estimate that up to 186 000 or even more deaths could be attributable to the current conflict in Gaza”. This is 8% of the population.

(The Lancet is a weekly peer-reviewed general medical journal and one of the oldest of its kind. It is also one of the world's highest-impact academic journals.[1][2] )

The genocidal government of Israel might be shaken out of it's goal of ethnically cleansing Gaza and the West Bank by new reporting on these three accusations that they have denied.

Did Israel allow the attacks of October 7 to occur in order to enable the mass slaughter that followed?

Yes. It takes an Apache Helicopter about 5 minutes to reach the Gaza border, yet a counter attack was not launched until 6 to 7 hours later. The border is highly secured and monitored. Soldiers were withdrawn from outposts, except one manned by female soldiers assigned the task of monitoring the border, most of whom were killed in order to prevent them from becoming hostages. See for yourself.

These videos from twitter/X summarizes the evidence: and

A search of “advance knowledge October 7 attack” yields ten videos covering the Hannibal directive. Below are 5, including CNN, Fox news, Cenk Uygur, etc.

Did Israel apply the Hannibal directive on Oct 7? The Hannibal directive, when active, mandates that the Israeli army use any means necessary to prevent the capture of Israeli soldiers, even if it involves killing them. Yes they did. Israel's Haaretz newspaper confirms this morning. John Mearsheimer reported this in December and was, of course, attacked by Israel and AIPAC. Others have also reported this fact.

There are at least 8 youtube videos on this, including from Prof Mearsheimer and several Israeli's.

I believe the most accurate number is that Israel killed 30 Israeli citizens, including 17 from one home which contained Hamas fighters and 18 Israelis. An Israeli tank was ordered to fire upon the house, killing 17 Israelis. This does not include Israeli's attempting to escape by car which were destroyed by Apache helicopters.

Propaganda: Is there proof of the atrocities attributed to Hamas?

The 40 beheaded babies has long been discredited, although President Biden claimed he saw images and has yet to walk that back. This did not happen. There is no evidence, nor is there 40 names to assign to the supposedly beheaded babies.

Is there proof of the alleged rapes and gang rapes? There are still many video's available claiming the rapes occurred, and of course the NYT story “Screams Without Words”. Here are several people challenging this narrative:

Those of you who are limited to American news propaganda, you will not have seen the violent horror of the genocidal “war” on Gaza. Trigger warning: These are very graphic images.

The purpose of this article is to collate into one location the many pieces of evidence challenging Israeli's narrative, better described as propaganda. Once one accepts that the attack was allowed or encouraged to happen, that Israel's IDF failed to respond for 6 hours, and the necessary associated propaganda is exactly that, then one will come to the obvious conclusion that Netanyahu does not have a plan to end the war other than extermination (ethnic cleansing).
