Israeli-Arab singer Nasreen Qadri posted a viral message to the Arab world following the release of a video showing five female IDF spotters in Hamas captivity. The soldiers were kidnapped from the Nahal Oz base on Oct. 7.

“This is not Islam. It’s shameful,” she said.

Speaking in Arabic, Qadri quoted the terrorists shown in the video filmed during the early moments of the abduction.

“Pray to the prophet, hah? What prophet is it exactly? What is Islam? This is not religion; it’s shameful,” she stressed. “You are abusing the girls, their dignity, where are you? Where are you, the Arab world? Look at yourself.”

Qadri converted to Judaism from Islam after marrying an Israeli Jew. Like many Israelis and viewers worldwide, she was horrified after watching the footage on the front page of the New York Post.

The disturbing 3-minute-long footage recorded on Hamas terrorists’ body cameras portrays the violence the captive women were subjugated to. They appeared stunned, barefoot, some of them smeared with blood and still wearing their pajamas. The video, which was shot inside the Nahal Oz base’s bomb shelter, was edited to exclude the most disturbing scenes. It was made public after the young women's families gave their approval.

In the video, the terrorists call the five female hostages “dogs” and yell at them to be quiet. One gunman told another to take their photos.

“Aren’t you ashamed of yourselves?” Qadri asked, slamming the terrorists who could be heard speaking and praising Allah in the background. “You say, ‘take their photo, take their photo,’ what photo? You talk about Islam – Is that Islam? Is that what you call Islam? These girls haven’t seen their parents in eight months...”

She continued, “It has been eight months that they’re suffering, eight months that they’re being raped, eight months without any food and water. These are the girls. Wake up, wake up! Bring them home now. Bring them home.”

Qadri’s video in Arabic has garnered hundreds of thousands of views and shares.
