Cartoon: Bring them home

A harmony of clanging drums and ear-shattering chants consumed the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv in Israel during the final weekend of March. The sea of screaming protesters raising blue and white banners gathered for two reasons — one was to call for the removal of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The other was to demand immediate action towards the retrieval of hostages held captive in Gaza. On Oct. 7, 2023, Hamas captured about 250 people. One hundred thirty of those captives are believed to still be in Gaza. Thirty-three of those remaining captives are presumed deceased. Many protesters carried pictures of these hostages, calling for action towards releasing the prisoners to be taken. Returning Gaza’s hostages to their families should be Israel’s primary focus as opposed to military or technological objectives. (Grace Stiefel)
