Bring the hostages home now

We call on our government to act now to bring the hostages home. Alive, healthy, and whole. It’s possible. Our government cannot give up on the hostages. Our government cannot run from their responsibility to these people. 200 hostages in Gaza. It’s possible, it’s necessary, it’s a must that we make every effort to free them.

Around 200 men, women, and children were kidnapped into the Gaza Strip at the hands of Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Every one of these hostages is a whole world, a world unto themselves. And they are all part of families and communities – parents, siblings, partners, children, friends. 200 worlds. It’s forbidden for us to give up on them.

We can save Avinatan, Andrey, Segev, Almog, Ofek, Eitan, Tamar, Eden, Avigail, Rom, Vivian, Moran – we can save them and so many others. We can bring back peace of heart to so many parents, siblings, families, and friends. We can release them and we must release them. They’re trusting us.

At the moment, we know almost nothing about their status, mainly because Hamas is preventing anyone from seeing them – including the Red Cross. Parents are panicking for their children who may not have their inhalers, children worried for their parents who don’t have their medicines, people on tenterhooks waiting for news on their loved one’s lives. They know that the mass-scale bombings in Gaza affect the hostages, too.

We are calling on the government of Israel, on US President Joe Biden, on the countries of the world and our Palestinian counterparts – to anyone who wants to advance a political solution and work to end the occupation and the conflict – to take action to secure the peace, safety, and return of the hostages.

Resistance to occupation doesn’t justify harming innocent civilians, just as Israel cannot justify harming civilians in Gaza. It’s our responsibility to oppose acts that hurt Israeli civilians, just as we oppose acts that hurt Palestinian civilians. Sooner or later, some sort of deal will come. But time is not on our side. The time to bring them home is now. Free the hostages now.

Human rights organizations in Israel urge compliance with the ruling of the International Court of Justice


"As members of Israel-based civil society committed to human rights and the rule of law, we condemn the fact that Israel has so far failed to change its behaviour based on the measures imposed by the ICJ, as well as the fact that humanitarian aid to Gaza dropped by 50% in the month following the ruling."

Joint Statement in Support of UNRWA


"The suspension of funds from major donors significantly jeopardizes UNRWA’s capacity to deliver life-saving aid to over two million civilians in Gaza who depend on its services. In the context of ongoing military aggression by Israel, which has caused famine and disease outbreaks, the lack of UNRWA’s support could lead to catastrophic outcomes for those enduring already dire living conditions."

Israel-based civil society and human rights organizations call for a ceasefire


"We, the undersigned Israel-based civil society and human rights organizations, call for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and demand the immediate release of hostages held in the Gaza Strip. An immediate ceasefire will prevent further loss of civilian lives and facilitate access to vital aid for Gaza to address the unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe there."
