Kafr Qasim Mayor Adel Badir says the leadership of the Arab community condemned the October 7 assault, and that what happened that day is undeniable.

“I didn’t have to see the film; the facts are the facts, it’s the truth,” Badir tells the Kan public broadcaster.

“The [Arab] leadership showed responsibility, and from the first day they condemned what happened. Most of the Arab mayors said so, if not all of them,” he says.

“It goes against our values and the values of Islam,” Badir says.

“When you personally know some of the murdered people it is even harder. They kidnapped people, they took children to Gaza,” he says.

Badir was speaking after he attended a screening last night of the video of the Hamas atrocities that was held by the Prime Minister’s Office for leaders of Israel’s Arab community.

“I left after five minutes following [the video of] the two boys and their father. I couldn’t bear it. As a father of six with 13 grandchildren, I couldn’t,” he says.

Arab mayors, heads of city councils, community center administrators, media figures, journalists and “thought leaders” were among those invited to the Nazareth viewing.

The film, produced by the IDF Spokesperson’s Office, shows uncensored, difficult-to-watch videos, many taken from terrorists’ bodycams during their murderous rampage in southern Israel on October 7.
