Horror stories continue to pour in from Israel in the aftermath of the surprise terror attacks by the militant group Hamas. One of the most savage assaults occurred at the Supernova music festival near the Gaza Strip, where at least 200 people—possibly many more—were murdered, and others ran for their lives.

Terrified festivalgoers first realised something was wrong when a siren began blaring at dawn warning of rockets. Hamas terrorists then cut the electricity before firing rockets and blasting gunshots from jeeps they drove onto the site…

The Israeli rescue service Zaka tonight said at least 260 bodies have been removed from the festival site. 

Some of the terrorists reportedly evaded Israel’s border defenses by flying in on paragliders. 

Full text of the above tweet:

Flying in armed terror squads to a music festival attended by unarmed young women and men from Israel and around the world, who are there promoting peace, and then systematically murdering, raping, kidnapping, and mutilating them in front of an adoring public, who further desecrate those bodies, is not an act of resistance. 

The level of depravity and hatred it requires for anyone to find solidarity in terrorists hunting and butchering young women and men at a music festival cannot be understated. 

More than 250 festival attendees are feared dead, with many more missing.

Other murderers came in by vehicle:

One partygoer named Ortel said the rockets fired were quickly followed by gunshots being fired from jeeps full of gunmen. 

She told the BBC: ‘They turned off the electricity and suddenly out of nowhere they [militants] come inside with gunfire, opening fire in every direction.

‘Fifty terrorists arrived in vans, dressed in military uniforms. They fired bursts, and we reached a point where everyone stopped their vehicles and started running.’

Witnesses described the utter terror they experienced. An emergency worker named Yaniv said: 

There are at least 200 bodies of Israelis in the area I was in. It was a massacre.

I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. It was a planned ambush. As people came out of the emergency exits, squads of terrorists were waiting for them there and just started picking them off.

As RedState’s Bonchie reported, some protesters in New York City were supportive of Hamas during rallies Sunday. It’s important to remember that this kind of absolute barbarism is what they’re cheering for.

The effects of these horrific attacks will be felt for years, if not forever, and the dynamics of the already-challenged region took a hard turn for the worse. More and more heart-wrenching stories are coming out, and they’re difficult to read (or write about). 

They make one question the very nature of humanity because it’s hard to believe that anyone could act with such wanton cruelty and disregard for innocent people. I’ve tried to put my head into that of a 9/11 terrorist and imagine what could possibly make someone do something like that, and I simply can’t do it. The same is true here: I can’t imagine a situation in the history of the planet that would make me consider indiscriminately killing hundreds if not thousands of people whom I’d never met and had committed no crime.

Unfortunately, however, it is clear that terrorists can and do descend into such depths of evil. They have committed unspeakable crimes, though, and for that, they must be stomped out of existence.
