Woman whose father was abducted by the Iranian regime calls out pro-Hamas protesters
"My dad spent 16 years of his life here in America to be the voice of the people of Iran, who are right now in the middle of a revolution," Gazelle Sharmahd said.
Daughter of Iranian journalist and hostage Gazelle Sharmahd asks where the pro-Hamas protesters were when her father was abducted by the Iranian regime.
"My dad spent 16 years of his life here in America to be the voice of the people of Iran, who are right now in the middle of a revolution," she said. "They have been on the streets since last year in September fighting the terrorists."
"Those are people that fight those terrorists," she said in reference to the Iranian protesters. "And I didn't see the people that are on the streets right now in these Hamas rallies there when the people of Iran were on the streets."
Three years ago, her father, Jamshid Sharmahd, was abducted during a business flight layover in Dubai and is currently being held hostage in an unknown location in Iran because he created a website that was critical of the Iranian government.
Sharmahd organized a campaign to fight for her father's freedom titled "Freedom for Jamshid Sharmahd."
"Where were they when thousands and thousands of people in Syria were butchered?" she said in reference to those that attended the Hamas rallies. "They were not there."
She also went on to blast the Biden administration over the recent Iran prisoner swap.
"We have released some of the hostages in a horrible, horrible deal a month ago," Sharmahd said. "But my dad and some others were left behind. And now we're giving more money to the regime, while still leaving hostages behind."
