Omer Shem-Tov, 21, is where no parent would want their child to be
Think of dancing and the next minute you die. To dance and the next minute to find yourself with mutilated limbs, riddled with bullets, to dance and the next moment to see next to you bloody bodies, girls rushing, human monsters wreaking havoc, burning people alive, even on dead bodies, to kill defenseless animals.
Parents talking to their children for the last time on the cell phone, video of the last moments of your loved ones begging for help, their voices breaking through your cell phone and you not being able to offer them the help they are desperately begging for. And there, in the Underworld of Gaza, 136 people still remain hostages of the monsters.
How can the western world sleep peacefully after all this destruction? How is it possible that he does not sense the threat - the hot breath of death?
Who out there does not understand that right now the army of Israel is fighting for the freedom of the western world?
And after the massacre follows an equally painful reversal of reality. The victim, the Jewish people, to appear as the perpetrator. Even at Harvard, Yale, the UN, in the politicians' statements, in the absence of the movements that make so much noise in other cases.
Following the letter that KIS had addressed to the Prime Minister, Mr. Kyriakos Mitsotakis, requesting the mediation of Greece for the release of the hostages held by Hamas in Gaza, on the occasion of the 100 days since their abduction on 7.10.23, the Director of the Diplomatic Office of the Prime Minister, Ambassador Ms. Anna Maria Boura, sent to the KIS (on January 18.1.2024, XNUMX) the following letter:
Dear Mr. Saltiel,
Dear Mr. Eliezer,
On behalf of the Prime Minister, I would like to thank you for your letter of January 11, XNUMX.
More than a hundred days after the terrorist attack by Hamas on October 7th and the abduction of the hostages, Greece continues to stand by Israel. On every occasion, the Prime Minister expresses his solidarity towards the government of Israel and the friendly Israeli people, having stated, from the very first moment, his devastation and repugnance for Hamas’s brutal and unprovoked attack.
As the Greek Prime Minister has repeatedly stated, within the framework of the European Union and its international and regional contacts, our country unequivocally condemns terrorism, acknowledges Israel’s right to self-defense and requests the immediate release of all hostages held by Hamas, without terms and conditions.
