When word spread that terror group Hamas kidnapped people from Israel, we learned that Americans were among those taken.
At least seven U.S. citizens were taken hostage in the October 7 attack. Their current fate is unknown.
Their families back in America reached out to Biden for some comfort. They asked if they could attend the White House Hanukkah event. But this is what they got back.
From The Post Millennial:
The Biden administration allegedly snubbed family members of American hostages held captive by Hamas, and not allowing them to attend the White House’s 800-person Hanukkah party.
CNN’s MJ Lee reported, “Several family members of the American citizen hostages missing in Gaza had asked the White House to attend its Hanukkah reception tonight, but did not receive invitations, one of them tells me.”
According to a CNN report, family members of American citizens taken hostage by Hamas were denied invitations to the White House’s Hanukkah party. The White House has not responded to questions about the news.
Some might be wondering why anyone would want to attend an event hosted by Joe Biden, a president suffering dismal approval ratings. While some of these families might be Biden supporters, they were perhaps looking for some kind of recognition from the administration.
Their family members have been missing for over two months. When Hamas released hostages several weeks ago, none of them were American citizens. Critics have blasted the Biden administration for failing to secure these Americans’ release.
It is possible their families were seeking some kind of assurance from the administration that they had not forgotten them. Instead, they were denied even an invitation to the White House for Hanukkah—an important holiday for the Jewish people.
- The White House refused to invite the families of American Hama hostages to its Hanukkah party.
- The families asked for invitations but reportedly were snubbed.
- At least seven Americans were kidnapped by Hamas on October 7th; the White House has failed to secure their release.
