Global billionaire Elon Musk visited southern Israeli villages Monday decimated Oct. 7 by Hamas terrorists to see for himself the devastation and atrocities perpetrated by the invading hordes from Gaza.
Following his visit to the decimated villages, Musk viewed the IDF Spokesperson’s compilation of uncensored footage from the October 7th massacre, at the Knesset in Jerusalem.
“We saw the joy expressed by terrorists that were killing innocent civilians, including kids and babies,” Musk said in an online discussion following the screening. “It’s troubling to see massive protests in almost every city in favor of Hamas; we must stop the propaganda that is convincing people to engage in murder.
“Israel must do in Gaza what the Allies did in Germany and Japan after World War II,” he added.
The entrepreneur was accompanied by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as they toured Kibbutz Kfar Aza, one of the worst-hit communities where Hamas massacres took place on that devastating Shabbat Simchat Torah.
Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council Acting Chairman Yossi Keren and IDF Spokesperson representative Liad Diamond briefed Musk on the massacre at the kibbutz.
Netanyahu and Musk went to the Leibstein family residence where the latter heard about the heroism of the late Ofir Leibstein, the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council chairman who was murdered on the morning of October 7th in exchanges of fire with terrorists who had entered the kibbutz.
The prime minister and Musk proceeded to the Itamari family residence where Musk heard about Avigail Idan (4), whose parents were murdered, and who was abducted to Gaza. Little Avigail turned four years old two days before her release on Sunday from Hamas captivity. At the family home, an IDF Spokesperson representative showed photographs that were taken a few days after the massacre.
At the conclusion of the visit, Netanyahu and Musk went to the young people’s neighborhood on the kibbutz, which suffered most of the horrors on October 7th, following which Musk viewed the uncensored footage of the events on that day.
Musk and Netanyahu also discussed the security aspects of artificial intelligence in in their online discussion, and later met on the subject with senior Israeli security personnel involved with AI, and cyber security officials.
Musk, who owns the X social media platform (formerly Twitter), SpaceX, Tesla, Neuralink and two other companies, also met with President Isaac Herzog and the families of hostages being held captive by Hamas in Gaza. The two men discussed “the need to act to combat rising antisemitism online” as well.
