A U.S. official said this week that one of the reasons that Hamas terrorists ended negotiations for releasing more hostages is that the terrorist organization does not want to release female hostages because those hostages are then going to reveal what Hamas did to them.

The remarks — from State Department Spokesman Matthew Miller — come after there have been multiple horrifying accounts of the extreme sexual violence that the Islamic terrorists committed against Israeli women during the October 7 massacre.

“The fact that they continue to hold women hostages, the fact that they continue to hold children hostages, just the fact that it seems one of the reasons they don’t want to turn women over they’ve been holding hostage, and the reason this pause fell apart, is they don’t want those women to be able to talk about what happened to them during their time in custody,” Miller said.

“There is very little that I would put beyond Hamas when it comes to its treatment of civilians, and particularly its treatment of women,” he added.


Israeli officials and eyewitness accounts have painted a grisly picture about what happened on October 7 as experts say that Hamas had a premeditated plan “to use sexual violence as a weapon of war.”

“They cut limbs and genitals, they raped, they abused corpses,” said Israeli Police Chief Kobi Shabtai “There were sadistic sexual acts.”

Some of the rapes against grandmothers, women, and children were so violent that the women had their pelvises broken. Women were gang raped by the Palestinian terrorists, some of whom shot and killed the women “while inside her,” according to eyewitness accounts.

Another highly disturbing report that was published over the weekend revealed that one woman was gang raped simultaneously by eight to 10 terrorists. “She was screaming, ‘Stop it already! I’m going to die anyway from what you are doing, just kill me!’” an eyewitness said. “When they finished, they were laughing, and the last one shot her in the head.”

Leftist organizations that are allegedly committed to protecting women from sexual violence have largely been radio silent on the matter.

When Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) was asked on Sunday about condemning Hamas for its extreme acts of sexual violence, she responded: “I think we have to be balanced about bringing in the outrages against Palestinians.”
