Article by rescued hostage whose husband is still held by Hamas

Raz Ben Ami, a rescued hostage whose husband is still captive of Hamas, wrote an article about the ordeal she still faces:
Mr. Prime Minister, I was there, I know.

I know how they feel, I know what they are going through. I know about the feeling of being suffocated, the hunger, the thirst, the pain, the fear and the paralyzing dread, the sleepless nights, the days of sorrow and anxiety. I also know that if I had stayed there another week I'm not sure I would have survived.

Mr. Prime Minister, when I was there I did not know. I did not know if I would survive the hunger, the horrors, the bombings. I did not know if I would get out of there alive if I would see my daughters again, my beloved husband, my family, and friends. And yet, even there in captivity, what kept me going was the knowledge that the state would do everything to bring us all back home. It was the knowledge that we would never be forsaken that kept me alive.

And then I was released, welcomed with warmth and love, the people of Israel embraced my daughters, embraced me with blessings and compassion and I truly knew that soon I would be reunited with my husband and all the kidnapped would return home and reunite with their loved ones.

But now I am left in the dark. I do not know the condition of the captives left behind; I do not know if they have food and medicine; I do not know what they are wearing these cold days as they are inside dark and gloomy tunnels, I do not know how they could survive so many days without sleep; I do not know how my Ohad is and I do not know what efforts are being made to bring all the hostages back home. I do not know what your considerations and those of the War Cabinet members are.
Well the time's come they locate exactly where remaining hostages are held by Hamas in Gaza, and start doing whatever possible to release them, though obviously not at the cost of letting dangerous jihadists loose, which will come at the expense of Israelis and all other innocent communities around. It's good that the infrastructure of the Hamas is being destroyed. But there's still a considerable amount of work to do.
