Is it so hard to believe that the massive forces shaking the cowling apart could to throw debris into the air-stream with sufficient force to dislodge a cabin window?
yes it's hard to believe

The blade loss video show large motions at the inlet, but motion alone is not enough. You have to couple it with mass and rate of change.

The even more challenging forces are gust loads in extreme turbulence or aircraft upsets and these don't end up like what you see in the pictures. As long as the inlet remains a box structure designed to aircraft principals it will hold up through all types of loadings.
