Naama’s face is the one that haunts me. Naama’s pain, her helplessness, her despair. I grieve for her and for her mom. It’s unendurable, yet we endure. God bless and protect her.

As the mother of a 20 year old Jewish daughter, I would do anything I could to help you get Naama back. I’m sure this is a complete nightmare. I hope she comes home soon and her captors perish. Hell is too good for them.

No person should have to endure what Naama or Ayelet have endured. That is why the only sensible course of action is to eradicate Hamas, no matter how long it takes.

It's not about retribution, it's about prevention.

Wow. How powerful. Ayelet's words hit at the hearts and guts of all mothers, fathers and human beings. Bari, keep on broadcasting these voices. It's so unfortunate that your site appears to be one of the very few that does but oh, so wonderful that you're here doing God's work. Who would ever have thought that all of us Amercian Jews, so assimilated, would ever be living thru a time like this, when not just the whole world, but also our own country, seems to hate us simply because of our religion. Was Germany/Poland etc. at this inflection point 80 years ago when the lucky Jews decided to leave?

All prayers and love for Naama and we won't give up hope

Diplomacy is inadequate to deal with barbarians like Hamas. The IDF has only one choice, for these girls, other women and those who will live in the future. Destroy Hamas, take control of education of Gazan youth, make life better for Gazans than they could ever hope for under Hamas rule, and take away an inclinations to hate Isreal or Jews. The world did it with Nazi Germany, and has to do it again with Muslim Gaza under Hamas rule.

I pray for Naama daily. She is on a list on my wall so I don't forget her. May she come home soon.

I have a son

A military age son

When I was his age, a bit younger, I was in the military, Marines - oo-rah.

🤔 rules of war. What a crock. Tell me which "rules of war" Hamas is following; and yet the elected fools in DC, those appointed in the UN demand Israel follow these "rules of War" - is there really a war going on? Really?

My solution: green space, lots of it, approximately 141 sq miles of it. Bulldoze the refuse, let the rats flee to other places, clean it up. The Israelis are smart - I'm sure they can engineer a solution to a festering cesspool that threatens the world and can create a place of peace and beauty.

Shalom

I actually have thought about changing my profile pic to a picture of a 15-year-old girl.

Because this would remind people of how a gang of Arab Pirates raped a 15-year-old German girl so badly that she almost died.

There are no words for this horror but you should be proud of your articulate advocacy. I am so saddened that this has happened and I am praying for your daughter and the other hostages and for their safe return. May God give you and your daughter the strength to survive and overcome this. May God Bless you and your daughter and bring her and the other hostages home safe.
