Israeli-American Hostage Gadi Haggai has Died in Hamas Captivity

Israeli-American Hostage Gadi Haggai has Died in Hamas Captivity

Haggai’s wife Judi Weinstein, a U.S. national, is still held captive in Gaza by Hamas.

Kibbutz Nir Oz announced that Gadi Haggai, 73, died while in Hamas captivity. The terrorist group is still holding his body in Gaza.

Haggai held American and Israeli citizenship.

From The Times of Israel:

In a statement, the kibbutz said Gadi Haggai, 73, was murdered and that his wife, 70-year-old Judi Weinstein, remains hostage in Gaza.

Weinstein is believed to have been wounded during the onslaught.

The kibbutz does not say how it received the information of Haggai’s death, but said his body remains in the hands of Gaza terrorists.

Haggai, a retired chef and jazz musician, was a father of four and grandfather of seven.

“Gadi was a man full of humor who knew how to make those around him laugh. A musician at heart, a gifted flautist, he played in the IDF Orchestra and was involved with music his whole life,” the Hostages and Missing Persons Families Forum said in a statement, adding that Haggai’s family had asked for privacy.

Judi, a U.S. national, took a 40-second video on her phone on October 7. They were on a morning walk when Hamas invaded. They tried to take cover in a field:

Taking cover in a field, they could hear a recorded voice from an alert system for their kibbutz in southern Israel.

“What did she say?” Weinstein asked in Hebrew as she captured the scene on video.

“Red alert,” her 72-year-old husband said, referring to the warning for incoming rocket fire.

Weinstein shared the 40-second video clip in a group chat on October 7, when Hamas invaded Kibbutz Nir Oz during its terror onslaught, in the couple’s last contact with their family.

Thank Hamas and every Hamas licking moron in the world for that death.

The IDF needs to say “we are going to reclaim Gaze, one mile at a time, until the hostages are released, alive and healthy.”

Kill two birds with one stone.

    As long as those Gazans who raise their children to be martyrs, this problem will not go away, all those people should receive the same treatment as Hamas,

Netanyahu said, “Surrender or die.” It should be an easy choice – for those with the ability to make it.

Biden has ignored more deaths so this is a nothing burger for the White House. He can’t risk offending his benefactor…. Iran.

No tears for any of the murdered Israeli Jews, from any of the vile and evil useful idiot crowd among the European, Leftist dhimmis, and, American Dhimmi-crats.

Jews cannot be victims; they are alleged oppressors; only Muslim supremacists, terrorists and Islamofascists will be anointed as alleged “victims.”

    Note that I have suggested that JR/Thad Jarvis express some empathy for Jews who have been harmed by Pales. Neither could bring themselves to do so, yet they were whining about consequence Pales are receiving.

An American

Biden does nothing

Replaced by the scum at the border

    The movement that’s captured The Screaming D’s, and runs The Brandon Administration isn’t an exercise in Americans governing ourselves for our own advantage, or at all, really.

    America is to be governed by a mostly external cabal of big-brained overlords, for the benefit of everybody else. It’s the Wilson version of “progressive” governance, settled in for 100 years. Haggai was expendable, as are we all.

    The farm isn’t run for the livestock’s benefit. Some of the livestock are even raised to be fodder for others, to be eaten last. Those aren’t the farmers either. Also, “Four legs good; two legs better.” and “Some animals are more equal than others.”

There needs to be American retaliation for his death. Israel is already working over Pales in Gaza. The West bank would make a good target, but Jews have a significant presence, about 450,000. It looks like most of them are concentrated in a comparatively small area. So it should be fairly east to identify deserving high population targets.

How about GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB)?

The essence of war is delivering more terror than they can. The West Bank is full of the same kind of creations as Gaza has.
