Vice President Kamala Harris is giving voice to the unspeakable horrors inflicted upon Israeli women by Hamas on October 7.

At an event on Monday highlighting wartime violence against women, Harris heard the harrowing testimony of former hostage Amit Soussana. The young woman recounted the depraved assault she endured while held hostage by Hamas before being freed in November during a temporary ceasefire agreement.

“In the days after October 7, I saw images of bloodied Israeli women abducted. Then it came to light that Hamas committed rape and gang rape at the Nova Music Festival,” Harris said.

The vice president did not shrink from detailing the sickening atrocities she saw in the Oct. 7 pictures, informing the world that Hamas committed “rape and gang rape” against women, leaving their brutalized bodies “naked from the waist down, hands tied behind their backs and shot in the head.”

“We cannot look away and we will not be silent. My heart breaks for all these survivors and their families and for all the pain and suffering over the past eight months in Israel and in Gaza. We are deeply concerned by all reports of sexual violence and degradation, and we mourn every innocent life lost in this conflict. It is devastating.”

While Hamas predictably denies such atrocities, a recent United Nations report found reasonable grounds to believe the terrorist organization had indeed perpetrated “sexualized torture” and other cruel violence against Israeli women.

As more gut-wrenching stories of Hamas barbarism inevitably emerge, Harris’ advocacy honors the suffering of innocents and exposes the warped evil festering in Gaza.

    KAMALA, why did you not speak out, when you first had evidence of the absolute cruelty, barbarism, vicious rape and murder of Israel women AND MEN AND CHILDREN when you were first shown, the disgusting inhuman, degregating atrocities committed NOT ONLY BY HAMAS terrorists but also civilian men of Gaza. Or is it that you are SPEAKING UP NOW, TO BOOST YOUR CONTINTUENTS VODES FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS IN OFFICE, when elections come. You may be VP of the USA but you are a disgrace to women in general!! SHAME ON YOU!!

    Where were you eight months ago Kamala?? … and you are just shedding light on this now ?? You’re a disgrace and it’s so obvious what you are doing . Speaking out to in some way garnish votes that you are not going to get regardless. You and your President and your administrations shameful weak response to the acts and actions against the Israeli people is beyond despicable . Such blatant and reprehensible actions by Hamas are being swept under the rug and it took you eight months to even mention it although the entire world is aware and knows about it . I’m not a Trump supporter but as god is my witness I will have to vote for him because I know his response will be validated by action not hypocrisy by your defunct and totally embarrassing and defunct administration… Shameful abhorrent and totally inexcusable.!!!!!!

    This acknowledgement is too little too late.
    Your 8 months of silence speak far louder than your 5 minute vocalization now!
    You join the ranks of Hilary Clinton, Michelle Obama, BLM, Me To and Susan Sarandon. Shameful and self seeking, manipulated and manipulating, perfect symbols of amoral ego’s

    Sycophants come in all shapes, colours, genders and political stripes. VP needs to cuddle up to congress as Netanyahu will soon demolish the silence of the presidential appeasers. As November 2024 approaches- it’s wise for the VP to speak from both sides of her mouth. You fool none with your crocodile tears and political manoeuvring and manipulation, while abusing the victims again by not believing in them WHEN IT HAPPENED and the gall you have to make them now parade their abuse to gain power in the polls. Can the VP finally retire from the presidential and the human race?
