Florida's First Lady answers Sara Netanyahu's plea.

Florida’s First Lady wants an end to the conflict in the Middle East, calling for Hamas to lay down its weapons and to release all hostages.

Casey DeSantis posted her demand to X.

“Shouldn’t even have to ask for this to be said, and it can’t be said loud enough. Hamas must release every single hostage immediately, lay down their weapons, and unequivocally surrender. Release all hostages NOW!” she said.

The First Lady was quote-tweeting a letter from Sara Netanyahu to the United States’ First Lady, Jill Biden, in which the wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appealed to Dr. Biden on an emotional level.

Netanyahu noted that she not only was “Bibi’s wife” but was writing as a “mother” to Biden as a “first lady and mother.”

She noted that 32 children were kidnapped last month by Hamas, vividly describing the uncertainty they face.

“These children are surely suffering from untold traumas, not only from being kidnapped, but also from witnessing the brutal murder of their parents and siblings on that horrific Oct. 7.”

From there, the letter turned to a description of a pregnant woman kidnapped by Hamas, and “what she must be going through as she is being held with her newborn by these murderers.” Sara Netanyahu also discussed a 10-month-old boy “kidnapped before he even knew how to walk.”

“We must speak out for these children. We must call for the immediate release of them and all those being held. We must demand the Red Cross visit them immediately. They have yet to do so.”

    Well meaning, perhaps.
    Òr maybe just show.
    But meaningless.

    Call on Benito Naziyahoo to step down.
    And installation of an honest broker for peace.
    Ìmagine if Gazans were honestly told, “Dump Hamas, and become a free state.”

      Like the right wing militias in the US, Hamas got most of the guns. And, God is on their side. (Both of them.)

    Who cares what Casey DeSantis thinks or says? She has an IQ of about 3, and has no right talking about anything more complex than choosing a pair of shoes.

    Hamas –“By the Prophet’s Holy Beard! (blessed be each whisker). We have awakened the she-devil named Casey, harridan from a wet world.
    We have really stepped in it now! Flee to the parched Sinai !”

    Israel’s far-right Nazionists are now again discussing the racist, colonialist, internationally illegal old proposal of the extreme rightwing: TRANSFER. The mass expulsion of Palestinians to other nations and the siezure of the territories as “Greater Israel.” Emptying Gaza into Egypt’s Sinai Desert is the focal point now. But their eyes are on the West Bank too.

    Oh please stop with the collective insanity. Jilly isn’t a real doctor, she’s got a Ph.d in education. Amazing how ‘dr. Jill” can’t diagnosis her own husband though, right? Yeah, that’s because all she sees is DOLLAR SIGNS. Show me the money is what Jilly the fake doc is. Show her the money baby while all you idiots guarding them and protecting them get thrown crumbs. Dumb people falling all over the Bidens thinking this is their moment. So foolish. They won’t gain anything from this. They are being used. Just like blacks have been used for years by Democrats. And NOTHING has improved…all lies. Democrats only know lies. “For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb.”
