3 Israeli Teens Feared Kidnapped By Terrorists

3 young Israeli teens were reported missing Thursday, and a kidnapping is strongly suspected, especially since their cell phones stopped broadcasting at exactly the same time.

The three boys, who are yeshiva students were on their way home from the Jewish town of Alon Shvut to the Jewish town of Sussya, south of Hebron on Thursday evening when they suddenly disappeared.

Israeli security forces have been searching the Bethlehem and Hebron area today, and have located a burnt car they think was used in the kidnappings.Israeli authorities think that the car, a fairly new one with Israeli plates was used by the suspected kidnappers to lure the victims into a false sense of security as it approached them.

Two of the missing boys are reportedly 16 and one is 19.One of them is a US citizen, and U.S> Ambassador Dan Shapiro was notified by the Israeli government.

Brig. Gen. Motti Almoz, the commander of the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, said Friday evening that security forces were doing everything possible to locate the teens and PM Netanyahu has been in touch with their families to assure them that everything possible will be done to find their sons.

Netanyahu also reportedly brought the matter up in a previously scheduled conversation with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, telling him that since the announcement of a unity government between the Fatah-led PLO and Hamas in April, “the situation on the ground has been destructive.”

“This is the result of letting a murderous terrorist organization enter the Palestinian government,” the PM said.

He's quite right about that. Abbas, thanks to the Obama team and the EU now has plausible denial for everything, just like Yasser Arafat. Hamas, Islamic jihad and Abbas' own Fatah thugs can carry out the attacks on Israeli civilians while Abbas issues pro form a condemnations and laughs up his sleeve at the gullible westerners who label him a 'man of peace' and continue funding terrorism.

The Israelis are now operating on a working basis that they're dealing with a hostage situation.Many Palestinian figures, especially from Hamas and Islamic Jihad but also from Fatah have urged the kidnapping of Israelis as a tool to get convicted terrorists in Israeli custody released.The deal for kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit, led to the release of 1,027 terrorists, 470 of whom were considered hard core murderers. The Prime Minister’s Office said Friday that, since the beginning of the year, the Shin Bet has foiled 14 attempts to kidnap Israelis.

Hamas in particular celebrated the kidnappings in several messages, although they didn't formally take responsibility. Hamas spokesman in Gaza Husam Badran said “the Hebron operation is a great success for the [Palestinian] resistance in the West Bank.”

The IDF and Shin Bet will leave no stone unturned to try and find the boys.They may, with G-d's help find them and rescue them.

If not, the next step will occur when the Palestinian kidnappers contact the Israeli government with their demands. That's when the Israeli government and Netanyahu are going to be severely tested'

At around midnight on Friday, hundreds of people gathered at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City to pray for the well-being of the three boys.I invite you to join them.

Their names are Ya'akov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah, Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim, and Eyal Ben Iris Teshura.

I will and am joining them in prayer for these boys that they would be returned safely to their families and that Israel would give NOTHING it deems vital to its security.

"The deal for kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit, led to the release of 1,027 terrorists..." I remember something about this. At the time, I thought it was a bad deal but it's not my place to question the actions of the government of a foreign country who has never wronged us in any way shape or form and has in fact been the most reliable ally we've ever had. I thought the deal made for Bowe Bergdahl was a bad deal that we made. This one seems to have been much worse. I was aware of the deal but not aware of exactly how many enemy combatants were exchanged.

"...thanks to the Obama team and the EU..." I've long known the EU is an evil entity as are the nations that make up this entity. They view the US as a "strategic competitor" and will rejoice at any news of it being harmed and will gleefully assist any nation or entity wishing to do so all while publically claiming friendship while looking for any and all opportunities to harm America and its people. I've long advocated that America should have nothing to do with such people.

As for Israel, I'd suggest they have nothing to do with these people or nations that make up the EU and they should have nothing to do with the current government of America. G_d willing the American people have enough redeeming qualities left for it to be fruitful for Israel to deal with us, just not our government. G_d willing the American government can be changed in due time.

I'm joining my prayers with the prayers of the Israelis for the safe return of these boys in such a manner that G_d would be glorified.
