Ahead of ‘somber Passover’ Fetterman reminds media of hostages: ‘Hamas owns this entire catastrophe’

Ahead of a “somber” Passover, Senator John Fetterman (D-Pa.) called on the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas to “surrender” and send the hostages home.

“With a somber Passover approaching,” Fetterman wrote on X, “I remain committed to speaking about this travesty and acknowledge there can’t be true lasting peace until the hostages are home.”

“We must never forget Hamas owns this entire catastrophe and can end this,” he reminded social media. “Send them all home and surrender.”

Once the butt of conservative jokes, the outspoken Democrat has, in recent months, broken with his party with several surprising, common-sense statements.

As many within his party advocate in favor of the Iranian-backed terrorists, Fetterman has offered his unwavering support to Israel.

Fetterman addressed followers in front of a wall of posters showing Israelis whom Hamas has kidnapped. He has wallpapered his front office with them and vowed, “They will stay up until every single person is safely returned home.”

“I’m here in my office and all of these hostages, they’ve been up on our walls for over six months, and that’s exactly where they’re going to stay until everyone is brought back home,” he said in his Friday video. “And I’ll never understand why we’re not talking about that more, and why there’s not more stories about that in the media.”

“We don’t even know exactly where they are and if they are even okay,” Fetterman continued. “It’s very clear that we always make sure that we always talk about this and demand that and make sure until every last one is accounted for and brought back home. Because anyone [who] wants peace, we have to do this.”

“And remember that if Hamas would just send everybody home and surrender, all of the death, destruction, and misery in Gaza would end right now,” he stated. “Our office will never stop talking about this until everyone is brought back home.”

On October 19, less than two weeks after Hamas savagely attacked Israeli civilians, President Biden claimed that getting the hostages home was his highest “priority.”

“As I told the families of Americans being held captive by Hamas, we are pursuing every avenue to bring their loved ones home,” he wrote on X. “As president, there is no higher priority for me than the safety of Americans held hostage.”

On January 14, 2024, Biden issued a statement marking 100 days of captivity for the hostages.

“Today, we mark a devastating and tragic milestone—100 days of captivity for the more than 100 innocent people, including as many as 6 Americans, who are still held being hostage by Hamas in Gaza,” the president said. “For 100 days, they have existed in fear for their lives, not knowing what tomorrow will bring. For 100 days, their families have lived in agony, praying for the safe return of their loved ones.

“And for each of those 100 days, the hostages and their families have been at the forefront of my mind as my national security team and I have worked non-stop to try to secure their freedom.”

As BizPac Review reported on Thursday, “Over 100 hostages have either been freed, released by Hamas, or discovered to be dead in captivity since then, but the status of the remaining roughly 130 hostages — of which 50 are already believed to be dead — is virtually unknown to U.S. and Israeli intelligence, officials told NBC.”

“Not at all,” a former senior Israeli official told NBC when asked if there was a stable estimate as to how many hostages are alive. “No one reliable has this information. It’s all speculation.”
