On Thursday night, Fox News spoke about the legitimacy of photos exposing the violence done to Israeli civilians, and MSNBC discussed the resilience of Israelis.

Fox News — Debunking ‘Israeli propaganda’

On the “Ingraham Angle” Thursday night, Laura Ingraham said pro-Palestinian activists and media who didn’t trust that the photos of the violence being acted out by Hamas were real need to realize it isn’t Israeli propaganda.

“Even after some of the pics were verified by overseas media, doubters remained,” Ingraham said. “Well, today, Israel released photos of the barbarism, and the photos are so grizzly we will not show them on air.”

Ophir Falk, the foreign policy adviser for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, joined Ingraham via phone and said the release of those photos was a “test of moral clarity.”

Ingraham then asked if Falk was concerned that this could become a wider war that would include Hezbollah, Lebanon and “other jihadi fighters who could join in the mix here.”

“Well, that obviously is a concern,” Falk said. “We’re prepared for that. I think that’s what President Biden said that the world is watching.”

He added that those countries should take Biden’s advice and stay out of the war.

MSNBC — Israelis live in constant fear

Lawrence O’Donnell spoke to Rep. Greg Landsman, D-Ohio, on Thursday on “The Last Word” about his recent experience in Israel right before the attacks by Hamas occurred.

“We were in what’s called the Gaza envelope,” Landsman said, which are cities surrounding the Gaza Strip on the Israeli side. Landsman said the Israelis who lived there were incredible people who lived in constant fear.

But he added that they were some of the most resilient people he’d ever met.

Following the Hamas attack in that area, Landsman said, “Many people that we spent the day with are gone.”

O’Donnell then said that although many Americans are leaving Israel due to the war, many have chosen to stay.

Landsman said this is because “most want to stay and plan to stay. They want to be part of the next chapter, which will begin very sadly with this war. With Hamas.”

“But ultimately, Israel will prevail,” he added.
