Senator John Fetterman (D-PA) posted a video on social media on Friday in which he vowed to keep bringing up the issue of the hostages being held by Hamas in Gaza until they return home.

Near the start of the war, Fetterman put up posters of the Israelis who were abducted by Hamas in his front office and said that those photos will stay up until every single person is safely returned home.

In Friday’s video, published ahead of Passover which begins at sundown on Monday, the Senator said, “I’m here in my office and all of these hostages, they’ve been up on our walls for over six months. And that’s exactly where they’re gonna stay until everyone is back home.”

“And I’ll never understand why we’re not talking about that more, and why there’s not more stories about that in the media,” he continued.

Fetterman said the hostages should continue to be talked about “until every last one is accounted for and brought back home. Because everyone who wants peace, we have to do this.”

He further pointed out that “if Hamas would just send everybody home and surrender, all the death, destruction and misery in Gaza would end right now.”

Fetterman has shown to be a supporter of Israel, having told Israel’s Channel 12 News in February, “For me personally, it's been just incredibly easy to be on the right side. And I believe the right side is with Israel. Some people call that moral clarity. It is my job as a senator to be on the right side on any issue, and especially after October 7, there’s only one clear, right side and that’s with Israel.”

When anti-Israel protesters showed up outside Fetterman's office, chanting accusations of genocide, he responded by waving an Israeli flag from the roof of the building.

Last month, Fetterman condemned the decision by the Biden administration to abstain rather than veto a UN Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza for the month of Ramadan.

"It’s appalling the US allowed passage of a resolution that fails to condemn Hamas. The UN has always been unwilling to condemn this group of terrorists, cowards and rapists," he said.
