WASHINGTON (CC) - On Tuesday, members of the U.S. House of Representatives attended a screening of a 45-minute video of footage collected by Israel's government, detailing the atrocities committed by the terrorist-designated organization, Hamas, on October 7.


Shown to the lawmakers in an auditorium on Capitol Hill, some of the footage was assembled from the terrorist's bodycams.


Some members of the House left the screening in utter silence, shaken to the core, brought to tears and feeling ill.


“We had a large group of Republican and Democrat House members in the auditorium this morning, and you could have heard a pin drop — except for the sighs and the cries in the room because the video would make anyone with a soul cry,” Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson (R-LA) said.


Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, drew praise from the Speaker.


“I agree with our friend, Prime Minister Netanyahu, who said this is a battle between good versus evil, between light versus darkness, between civilization and barbarism. And we want to make absolutely clear where America stands in that fight, and we’ll continue to do that,” he added.


Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) said on X: "Many of my colleagues are currently watching the video that I saw in Israel of the Hamas killings. Hamas copied the Nazis, lining up families killing kids in front of parents. Burning people alive, in pits. They will hear brothers scream as their father jumped on a grenade."


Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) said he felt sickened after viewing the footage.


"I've seen decapitation and I've seen just beating, and beating on both dead and alive bodies," Issa said.


"It’s just war crimes. Unbelievable. And quite frankly, I'm just sick to my stomach. I mean, the details. And you can hear it, but when you see it, it's like visiting Auschwitz or Birkenau, except it's still going on visually," he added.


Auschiwtz and Birkenau were infamous Nazi death camps during WW2 that aided in the Holocaust.


After the video screening of the Hamas atrocities, Rep. Haley Stevens (D-MI) said she was “gutted.”


"This morning I viewed the horrific footage of Hamas killing, torturing, and kidnapping Israeli civilians," she said on X,


"I’m gutted. This is barbarism and an attack on all humanity. We cannot let this ever happen again and we must never forget."


“Seeing the video footage of people celebrating the killing of Jews shows what we’re up against. And the fact that anybody would encourage or condone what Hamas did that day. It’s outrageous. It’s unbelievable seeing footage like that in the year 2023, in places we’ve all been,” she said.


Israeli officials have been comparing Hamas to the Nazis, as they have witnessed people around the world align with the terrorists and against Israel in the latest installment of the Arab-Israeli wars.


The screening held for U.S. lawmakers could help to clarify who is for good and who is for evil in the House of Representatives.


It will also be interesting to find out when, where and how Israel will show the video to international bodies such as the UN.


Israel has been at odds with the UN for years. The animosity has boiled over, recently, spilling to the point of Israelis calling for the resignation of UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres.


Israel has also refused to issue visas to UN officials, ever since declaring war against Hams in early October.


Christians are watching to see who continues to support Hamas, after the screening, and who in the House renigs their Hamas support.


We are also watching for the latest developments, day by day, to get a better understanding of where the war is headed in terms of end times prophesy.
