“Just imagine if these were your children, or any children you know,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said on the floor of the Senate Thursday, making the case for the three abducted teens in Israel.

“Just imagine if your child was kidnapped for 14 days –and you don’t know where they are, or even whether they’re still alive.”

The three teens, Naftali Frankel, Gilad Sha’ar and Eyal Yifrah, ages 16 through 19, were taken from a bus stop after school June 12 in the West Bank near the city of Hebron. Frankel holds dual U.S-Israeli citizenship.

“These are teenagers who were targeted for who they are, who have done no wrong, who have done nothing that comes near to deserving what has happened to them that day while waiting at the bus stop to go home from school,” Cruz said.

Until now, there have been no statements issued by President Obama.

As I recall, HAMAS decided to kidnap Americans in Lebanon for ransom in the 1980s. We paid them.

HAMAS then decided to kidnap some Russian diplomats for ransom. Russia sent in KGB operatives to kidnap the relatives of the kidnappers, and began returning them a piece at a time (I believe it started with fingers and ears). The Russian diplomats were released within hours.

Not politically correct, but effective.

Perhaps HAMAS has forgotten about the Israeli assassination of some HAMAS generals? “Never Forget” does not only apply to the Holocost.
