Posted on 06/13/2014 8:04:37 AM PDT by Former Fetus
Three Israeli students from the Makor Chaim Yeshiva in the religious kibbutz Kfar Etzion were kidnapped by terrorists on Thursday night.
As the students made their way home from the Yeshiva, security forces say they were dragged into a vehicle driven by terrorists that had stopped for them as they waited at a hitchhiking post.
Makor Chaim Yeshiva is located between Jerusalem and Hevron in the Judea region.
IDF and police forces have been searching in the hours since the kidnapping to try and locate the three young students, while a gag order was placed on the press, due to the sensitive nature of the incident and the danger posed to the students.
Reports state that during the IDF search that ensued, special forces located a cell phone signal near the city of Hevron indicating that one of the captured had tried to call the police, but the call was cut off after seconds.
Meanwhile, the Arab Ma'an News Agency reported on Friday that IDF forces were searching the town of Dura to the southwest of Hevron, while Palestinian footage of IDF forces conducting searches was also aired.
Heavy military, Shin Bet and Border Guard patrols are working their way through the Hevron sector, including the Palestinian villages around the town, backed by deep intelligence operations in an attempt to find a trace of the boys.
A torched car with Israeli plates was also found, and investigators are trying to learn if there is a connection between the vehicle and the missing boys.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will issue a special statement holding Palestinian Authority head Mahmoud Abbas and his unity government responsible for the fate of the missing students.
Police have been in touch with the families and say that they have no reason to believe that the teenagers decided to go missing on their own, or run away from home.
From the Times of Israel: Islamic Jihad: Kidnappings the only way to release prisoners Senior official of terror organization calls on Palestinians to abduct Israeli citizens, target settlers in West Bank.
Please, pray for the safety of the students.
Implant timed squib charges in these prisoners and then swap 'em.
Maybe they'll take out a "Senior official" as well...
Here we go.
But the IDF has a few more balls than Obama, and will make the kidnappers pay.
Pray for Israel to start glassing Mecca.
"Six years later, in October 1985, Alpha Group was dispatched to war-torn Beirut, Lebanon. The Kremlin was informed of the kidnapping of four Soviet diplomats by the militant group, the Islamic Liberation Organization (a radical offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood). It was believed that this was retaliation for the Soviet support of Syrian involvement in the Lebanese Civil War. However, by the time Alpha arrived, one of the hostages had already been killed. Through a network of supporting KGB operatives, members of the task-force identified each of the perpetrators involved in the crisis, and once identified, began to take the relatives of these militants as hostages. Following the standard Soviet policy of no negotiations with terrorists, some of the hostages taken by Alpha Group were dismembered, and their body parts sent to the militants. The warning was clear: more would follow unless the remaining hostages were released immediately. The show of force worked, and for a period of 20 years no Soviet or Russian officials were taken captive."
prayers started as soon as I read the headline.
Was it The Judean Peoples’ Front or the Peoples’ Front of Judea?
for S.jackson’s ping list and for Albion’s prayer warriors
As big as a Monty Python fan as I am, I cannot find humor here.
For their rescue!
As we don’t need anymore lopsided prisoner swaps.
The Obama State Department will “Deplore the cycle of violence and call on all sides to exercise restraint”.
Obama’s swap of the Taliban for Bergdahl has not helped this situation...
Maybe the kidnappers will not have any balls after the IDF gets the prisoners free...
A few minutes ago, Hamas spokesman Hassan Badran openly called on Arabs in Judea and Samaria to obstruct the Israeli effort to find the boys.
Amen, I say to you, Amen.
Prayers for the students... .
Obama set the new standard with his foolish release of five top terrorists.
I expect these boys will be found, dead or alive, and I also expect that Israel will exact a heavy toll in retribution.
You can see the tensions mounting, the springs, rubber bands, whatever metaphor you wish, and the Israelis will go “Roman” on Gaza, the West Bank and Lebanon, and it won’t be for “limited objectives” this time.
I think the Israelis have learned over the last almost 70 years that there are no limited objectives and that they can’t give back real estate to be left in peace.
They must understand by now that if the power balance were reversed there would be no Jew left living anywhere in Israel.
So, here’s to the Israelis—finally do what you were commanded to do by God and that you failed to obey. Kill everything, take no booty, slaughter all the animals, take no prisoners, wipe out the Baal worshippers forever (that would mean muslims who worship the same so-called “god” Allah, or as educated people would say, Satan).
Or not. God will do it for them anyway.
