"War Is Not the Answer": Meet the Israeli Peace Activist Whose Parents Were Killed Oct. 7


Four Israeli hostages have returned to their families after Israel’s deadly raid on the Nuseirat refugee camp that killed at least 274 Palestinians. All four hostages were in good medical condition. As Israel’s war on Gaza continues unabated, families and supporters of many of the remaining hostages see the Israeli government’s refusal to negotiate for a ceasefire as a barrier to their loved ones’ safe return. “I already lost my parents, and I don’t want [anyone] to be in the position I am,” says Maoz Inon, whose parents were killed in the Hamas attack on October 7. Inon is a supporter of an “all for all” exchange, in which all surviving Israeli hostages would be returned to Israel in exchange for the release of the thousands of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli detention before and after October 7. “It’s time for action to stop the war immediately, to make a deal — all hostages in exchange for all Palestinian prisoners — and start working to build a better future,” says Inon.
