World leaders, including the French and Israeli Presidents, have condemned the abduction in the strongest terms and called it a “heinous act of terrorism”. The United Nations Security Council has also convened an emergency meeting to address the crisis and explore means to secure safe return of hostages.

The coming days will be crucial in this unfolding drama. The international community’s response to this crisis will not only determine the fate of one young woman but could also significantly impact the volatile dynamics of the Middle Eastern conflict.
What is Mia Saying in the Video?
In the video Mia is talking in Hebrew, her words probably written in advance by her captors. This is what she says in the video:
“My name is Mia Schem, 21 years old from Shoham. Right now I am in Gaza, I came back on Friday, early in the morning, from Sderot, I was at the party, I was injured in my hand, they took me to Gaza and preformed surgery on me in the hospital. It took 3 hours. They are taking care of me, giving me medicine, everything is ok. I only ask that I will be brought back home as soon as possible, to my family, to my parents and my brothers, please get us out of here as fast as you can. Please.”
Our Take on the Video
It is obvious to us that the video is part of the psychological warfare of Hamas terrorist group. They start the video by showing us that she is being taken care of, her wounds, which Hamas inflicted on her, are being bandaged. A 21 year old girl, innocent of any crime against Hamas, abducted and now being used as a tool for warfare.
This is a horrible warcrime and the world can do something about it. France is also responsible and can do something to help release Mia. Hamas is the #1 culprit and responsible for hurting her, making her and her family suffer and must release her right away and pay for their crimes. The world can stand up to this terrorism and stand with Israel in order to get all of the hostages released right away.
