HaShem Y'Nkom Damoh!
The body of the kidnapped youth Eliyahu Asheri was found overnight near Ramallah. He was likely murdered Sunday night by his Arab kidnappers, and will be buried on the Mt. of Olives this afternoon.
A large part of the inherent cruelty of the Arabs is the fact that for days they teased the family and nation with the possibility that Eliyahu, HaYa"D, may still be alive. Manpower and money were wasted in a surrealistic, Kafkaesque attempt to rescue him.
Baruch HaShem, at least his body was found and he will receive a proper Jewish burial.
