Adam Sandler, Amy Schumer, Henry Winkler and Dozens of Others Sign “No Hostage Left Behind” Letter to President Biden

Dozens of celebrities and Hollywood influencers signed an open letter to President Biden released Monday calling for the release of hostages held by Hamas terrorists in their war against Israel.

Adam Sandler, Amy Schumer, Ben Stiller, Bella Thorne, Bob Odenkirk, Chris Rock, Eugene Levy, Henry Winkler, Rosie O’Donnell and dozens of others are included in the list published on

“We are encouraged by Friday’s release of two American hostages, Judith Ranaan and her daughter Natalie Ranaan, and today’s release of two Israelis, Nurit Cooper and Yocheved Lifshitz, whose husbands remain in captivity,” the letter begins.

“But our relief is tempered by our great concern that 220 innocent people, including 30 children, remain in terrorist captivity, facing torture and death. They were captured by Hamas in a brutal massacre on October 7 in which more than 1,400 Israelis were killed: women were kidnapped, families burned alive and babies beheaded,” he continues.

“Thank you for your unwavering moral conviction, leadership and support for the Jewish people, who have been terrorized by Hamas since the group’s founding over 35 years ago, as well as the Palestinians, who have also been terrorized, oppressed and persecuted by Hamas. The group has been ruling the Gaza Strip for the past 17 years.”

“We all want the same thing: freedom for Israelis and Palestinians to live side by side in peace. Freedom from the brutal violence spread by Hamas. And the most important thing at the moment is the freedom of the hostages,” the letter says.

“We urge everyone not to rest until all hostages are released. No hostage can be left behind. American, Argentinean, Australian, Azerbaijani, Brazilian, British, Canadian, Chilean, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Eritrean, Philippine, French, German, Indian, Israeli, Italian, Kazakh, Mexican, Panamanian, Paraguayan, Peruvian, Polish, Portuguese ” Romanians, Russians, South Africans, Spaniards, Sri Lankans, Thais, Ukrainians, Uzbeks or other people, we must bring them home,” he concludes.

Some of the signatories posted the letter on their social media accounts, including Schumer, who writes: “Today we come together in solidarity, not to divide but to unite, to thank President Biden for his work to free the hostages and to urge everyone to leave #NoHostageLeftBehind. »
