Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar responded to the release of Israeli-Irish hostage Emily Hand, saying “an innocent child who was lost has now been found.”

Within hours of Varadkar’s post, the X platform included a notification that “Readers added context they thought people might want to know.”

“Emily Hand was not ‘lost,’ she was ‘kidnapped,’ taken as hostage by Hamas. Kidnapping is against the law, being lost is not,” the readers’ addition read.

Chaya Raichik tweeted: “This is disgusting. Prime Minister of Ireland says an Irish-Isareli child was “lost” and has been found and returned to her family. That child was taken hostage by Hamas terrorists on Oct 7 and was released today in exchange for Palestinian prisoners.”

She added, “She was not “lost”’.

MMA Champion Conor McGregor replied: “She was abducted by an evil terrorist organization. What is with you and your government and your paid for media affiliates constantly down playing / attempting to repress horrific acts that happen to children. You are a disgrace. The day after a stabbing of children in Ireland, NOT ONE PAPER HAD IT ON THEIR FRONT COVER. We will not forget.”

Foreign Minister Eli Cohen said he had ordered his staff to call in Ireland’s ambassador for a reprimand. In a tweet directed at Varadkar earlier on Sunday, Cohen wrote: “It seems you have lost your moral compass and need a reality check! Emily Hand was not “lost”, she was kidnapped by a terror organization worse than ISIS that murdered her stepmother. Emily and more than 30 other Israeli children were taken hostage by Hamas, and you @LeoVaradkar are trying to legitimize and normalize terror. Shame on you!”

An X account called Irish Jewish Voice, which has over 18,000 followers, also slammed Varadkar’s tweet, writing, “Emily Hand was not ‘lost’ or mislaid. This is NOT an Oscar Wilde play. Emily was cruelly abducted by Hamas terrorists. Israeli pressure brought her home,” the post continued.

To this degenerate it looks like the child took a walk in the woods and got lost than the kind hearted Hamas “activists” found her and brought her back to the family.

He later posted an image to twitter with a “full response” if you read the second paragraph it puts things into context…. but still, why post that to twitter to begin with?
