(DailyVantage.com) – Families of the Hamas hostages in Gaza gathered at a US House event put on by the GOP in order to plead for help for their relatives.
Doris Liber, whose son, Guy Illouz, was kidnapped at the Israeli music festival attacked by Hamas on October 7, attended the House Republican press conference.
Over the phone, Liber’s husband told his son, Guy Illouz, to hide under the bodies of those who died. Illouz said he had been shot in the arm and believed he was going to die. His mother said Illouz wanted to tell her his last words, as he said everyone around him was dead. He told his mother that “nobody survived.” Hamas terrorists killed more than 250 people at the festival and murdered about 1,400 more during their attack on Israel on October 7th.
Liber said she told her son she loved him, to stay quiet, and that she was going to send him help. Liber reassured her son that everything would work out fine and then regretfully hung up the phone. That was the last time she heard from her son.
Doris Liber lamented that no one has a complete list of the hostages and that families do not know what is happening. She is desperately looking for her son and knows he sustained an injury during the attack. Liber expressed impatience, saying it had been a month since the abduction. Liber said she was proud to be both an Israeli and an American. She pleaded with those at the GOP event to “just please help” her.
Another attendee, Yonatan Lulu-Shamriz, said his brother, Alon Shamriz, was carried away by Hamas. Shamriz cautioned the House GOP that Hamas would view the United States as a target and that they would be “next” if they did not defeat Hamas. He told those at the conference to “wake up” and called them to act and help Israel. In aiding Israel, Shamriz said they would also help the United States and “all of Europe.”
A bill passed by the House Republicans would give $14.3 billion to Israel to help fight Hamas. President Joe Biden said he plans to veto the bill if it reaches his desk. The Majority Leader of the Senate, Chuck Schumer, said the bill would be a “nonstarter.”
