Ramy Youssef's Emotional Plea: Free Palestine, End the Suffering

Ramy Youssef, the creator of the hit television series “Ramy,” made an impactful debut as the host of Saturday Night Live on March 30, with a poignant message focused on the war in Palestine. Addressing the audience during this significant weekend coinciding with both Ramazan and Easter, Youssef began by highlighting the spiritual significance of the occasion.

Acknowledging the diversity of religious celebrations occurring simultaneously, Youssef emphasized the power of prayer and the role it plays in his own life.

However, the tone quickly shifted as Youssef delved into a more somber topic, recounting a call from a friend named Ahmed, who asked for prayers for his family in Gaza. Expressing his support for peace in Palestine, Youssef earnestly prayed for an end to suffering and violence, advocating for the liberation of the Palestinian people.

His heartfelt plea resonated with the audience, who cheered in response to his impassioned words. Even amidst the seriousness of the moment, Youssef managed to infuse humor into his message, highlighting the absurdity of certain situations while maintaining a focus on the overarching theme of peace and justice.

Youssef’s advocacy for peace in Palestine extends beyond his appearance on Saturday Night Live. He has previously worn an Artists for Ceasefire pin to the Academy Awards, using his platform to raise awareness and call for action to end the conflict.

As a first-generation American born to Egyptian parents, Youssef’s personal background informs much of his work, including his acclaimed series “Ramy,” which explores the experiences of a young Muslim American navigating identity and faith. Youssef’s Golden Globe win for his role in “Ramy” further solidifies his impact as a storyteller and advocate for social justice.
