ā€œThe abduction of Hodali is a very serious violation, an Israeli attempt to confiscate freedom of speech, meant at silencing the Palestinians.ā€

The Union also said that Hodali was repeatedly abducted and imprisoned by Israel, spending many years behind bars, and that he is a senior writer, including theater and childrenā€™s books, while many of his works have been used in various televised documentaries and educational features in many TV and radio stations.
