Over the last seven weeks, President Joe Biden, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and many other Biden administration officials have hopscotched all over the Middle East meeting with heads of state focusing on getting the hostages home and raising the argument that Israel has the right to defend itself after the Hamas terrorist attack on Oct. 7 when 1,400 were killed and 240 were taken hostage to Gaza.
The Biden Administration has garnered attention speaking about the peace truce for the three to one ratio exchange of three Palestinian prisoners in Israel for every one Hamas-taken hostage.
During the first two days of the four-day exchange, no Americans were released.
On Sunday, the first American was released.
Abigail Mor Edan, one of many young children released by Hamas over the last three days, was the first American toddler released on Sunday.
Little Abigail’s story is of particular travesty. She is an orphan.
She was kidnapped as a three-year-old on October 7 after witnessing Hamas murder both of her parents on Oct. 7.
While being held Hamas inside the Gaza Strip, Abigail turned four years of age.
Her family, as well as the President of the United States, publicly stated how thrilled they were that she was released, as earlier reported by CDM.
Abigail's Aunt is more than connected to the Bidens and perhaps explains why Abigail was the first American, although in the third wave of the hostage for prisoner swap.
Abigail’s Aunt, Elizabeth Naftali, is a Los Angeles real estate investor, democratic donor, who is connected to Hunter Biden’s art, has had access to the Biden White House, and received a cushy appointment by President Joe Biden.
Federal Election Commission records show almost 1,700 democratic political donation entries by Natali over recent years.
It is reported in the records that Naftali gave $5,600 directly to Biden’s campaign and thousands in contributions to Democratic campaigns, party organizations, and PACs during the 2019-2020 campaign cycle, including a $50,000 contribution to a pro-Biden political action committee.
Those visits included a March 22 meeting with White House senior adviser Neera Tanden, who is now domestic policy advisor but previously served as Biden's staff secretary. That is a gatekeeper job for any White House, republican or democratic administration.
Naftali also met twice with White House policy adviser Richard Figueroa, in December and September 2022.
White House logs evidence that Naftali was with 40 people inside the East Wing on Sept. 17, 2022. Most of the events she attended seem to be while in the presence of the president with hundreds of people in attendance.
President Joe Biden appointed Elizabeth Hirsch Naftali to an obscure yet prestigious board of the federal Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad on July 1, 2022.
Naftali was one of several who collectively spent a boatload on Hunter Biden’s art, as reported The Real Deal.
