Father of hostage: ‘My son told me not to trade terrorists for him’

“The Caroline Glick Show” with Tzvika Mor, father of hostage Eitan Mor, Ep. 83

Before he was kidnapped by Hamas terrorists on Oct. 7, Eitan Mor saved hundreds of people at the Nova music festival, where he was working as a security guard.

Eitan and his friends from the security team were raised in Kiryat Arba, adjacent to Hebron, and their parents raised them on the Jewish value of defending the nation of Israel.

Eitan’s father, Tzvika Mor, appears as a guest on “The Caroline Glick Show.” Tzvika and his wife, Ditza, are founding members of the Tkuma (“Arising”) forum of parents of hostages who oppose making a deal with Hamas to rescue the hostages. Instead, they insist that the only way to free them is by defeating Hamas and eradicating its regime in Gaza.

Tzvika spoke with Caroline about how he and his family are enduring their son’s captivity in Gaza. They discussed the disagreements among the hostages’ families over the proper way to rescue them. They discussed the left’s effort to coopt the hostages’ families and exploit their suffering to advance the left’s campaign to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and how the Mors and many like-minded families of hostages are pushing against this effort.

Tzvika said that in times of war, Jewish tradition requires an individual to put his welfare second to the welfare of the nation. He discussed why he knows that the position he has taken is what Eitan would want.
