About

There Is a List refers to parodies and skits of a November 2023 viral video in which Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson and Rear Admiral (RAdm.) Daniel Hagari is seen walking through a purported Hamas subterranean terrorist tunnel that exits in a Gaza hospital as he points out a calendar that he claims documents the terrorists' shifts guarding hostages during the Israel-Hamas Conflict. The video became the subject of criticism and was painted as propaganda among some online as numerous online sources refuted the claims that the calendar featured any of the information purported by Hagari, resulting in parodies and memes about the contents of the calendar spreading online.

Origin

On November 13th, 2023, the IDF YouTube[1] channel posted a video titled "EXCLUSIVE: Inside Hamas Terrorist Tunnel Under Rantisi Hospital in Gaza" where RAdm. Daniel Hagari walks a camera operator through a purported Hamas-made underground base that is said to exit in a Gaza hospital. At the 5:30 mark, Hagari approaches a calendar hanging on the wall, points at it and says, "There is a list." He then states that the calendar is used by Hamas terrorists to mark their hostage-guarding shifts. The video gained over 900,000 views in a week (shown below).



The claim was refuted online that day by many, with Arabic speakers claiming that the calendar simply states the days of the week and does not showcase any names. For example, that day, X[2] user @zoo_bear made a post purportedly debunking the claim, joking that the "names of the Hamas soldiers" are the same as the days of the week, garnering over 8,400 likes in a week (shown below).


Mohammed Zubair @zoo_bear Wow! So @IDF Spokesperson in the video says, Hamas has put out names of their members guarding the Israeli hostages. The names of Hamas members mentioned in the 'List' are : السبت :Saturday الأحد : Sunday الاثنين : Monday الثلاثاء :Tuesday الأربعاء :Wednesday الخميس : Thursday جمعة :Friday II 0:22 PAINTERE K 6 G 47 M IN 6 9/48 M A NE 14 478 176 1/4 4/4 cha WN INN ww KNE 5:41 PM - Nov 13, 2023 - 398.SK Views of Hamas terrorists who guarded the hostages.
