Three Israeli boys have been kidnapped yet The New York Times is still more concerned with Palestinian “suffering.” It’s only been a few days since the IDF launched a major operation to find the three kidnapped Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, 19, Naftali Frankel, 16, and Gil-ad Shaar, 16. Judging from Jodi Rudoren’s report for The New York Times, you’d think that Hebron had been “under siege” for months or even years.

What should be our sole priority is the safety of Jews in the Land and State of Israel. Our only concern should be our security. The fact that Israel publicizes its care and kindness for its enemies just makes us look weaker and less reliable in the eyes of the Arabs. And when we look weak, then the Arabs are more attracted to the terrorists. They are pragmatic. They don't want to be perceived as "pro-Israel' by those who have no compunctions about murdering their friends and family over what they rationalize as "honor."
There should be a total blackout on Israeli television of the feelings and so called "suffering" of the Arabs whose homes are being inspected because of the chance they are hiding Arab terrorists or something of the kidnapped boys. Those Arabs will survive perfectly well at the hands of the IDF unless they are guilty.
Our sympathy should only be to the families and friends of the Jewish victims or this immoral crime.
We must continue praying for:
- Gilad Michael ben Bat-Galim
- Yaakov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah
- Eyal ben Iris T'shura
