How is this America? How is this person in the U.S Department of Veteran Affairs?

About Shekeba Morrad


Shekeba Morrad is an attorney with the United States federal government who mocked people pleading for Israeli civilians kidnapped by Hamas terrorists to be returned. She posted an Instagram video in November 2023 where she put on an accent and mocked calls for the return of hundreds of hostages, but she deleted the video that same month.

The federal government subsequently opened an investigation into the incident amidst calls from several U.S. senators for Morrad’s immediate removal from her job in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). At the time of her video, she was an appellate attorney in VA at the Office of General Counsel.

Hamas kidnapped the civilians, including women and children, during a series of terror attacks and war crimes that left over 1,200 Israelis dead, hundreds kidnapped and thousands wounded. Hamas executed the terror attacks on October 7, 2023.

The other Hamas war crimes included mass murder, torture, rape and beheadings. Israel retaliated with a war called “Swords of Iron.”

Hamas has been designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S., Canada, European Union, Israel and other countries. Founded in 1987, it has killed thousands of Israeli civilians through mass shootings and suicide bombings. Hamas has also kidnapped children, families and the elderly and held them hostage in Gaza. It has desecrated [slide 2] dead bodies and launched numerous rocket attacks against Israeli civilians.

Mocking People Pleading for the Return of Kidnapped Israelis

On November 12, 2023, Morrad appeared in a video of herself from Instagram mocking calls for the return of Israeli citizens who were kidnapped by Hamas and being held hostage in Gaza.

Morrad put on an accent and said [00:00:01]: “We just want our hostages back! Give us our 200 hostages!”

Morrad later deleted the video and privated her Instagram account.

On November 28, 2023, VA reportedly opened an investigation into the incident.

On the same day, VA released a statement that said: “We are aware of this incident, are investigating the matter, and will take any appropriate action.” The statement also said: “There is no place at VA for anti-Semitism or any expression of bigotry or hatred.”
