White House's 'Condolences' for Murdered Israeli Teens Will not be Enough
Breitbart ^ | 06.30.14 | Dr. Phyllis Chesler

Posted on 06/30/2014 2:01:29 PM PDT by SJackson

My heart is broken, absolutely broken. Words never fail me but at this moment, only words feel inadequate, even inappropriate. I am, of course, talking about the discovery of three dead bodies which once belonged to three beautiful Israeli souls: Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frenkel, and Eyal Yifrach.

This is a time for tears but also a time for some very serious decisions. Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu has confirmed that “Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay. He added that the teenagers were “kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by wild beasts.”

The French foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius, is “deeply shocked and upset” by the murder of these boys. He also expressed “horror” and indignation.”

President Obama expressed his "deepest condolences" to the family of the slain teenagers. He added: “I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation.” President Obama did not accuse Hamas of this despicable act nor did he say our government would assist Israel in its search for security and justice.

White House spokesman, Josh Earnest, said: "We obviously condemn in the strongest possible terms violence that takes the lives of innocent civilians."

Never miss an opportunity to urge restraint on those fighting terrorists. If Josh Earnest, (We obviously condemn in the strongest possible terms violence that takes the lives of innocent civilians) had a teleprompter like his boss, he'd have remembered their names, or at least that they were teens

I hear that the WH has even TWEETED their condolence. I have never heard of such strong actions.

Maybe he will fly over for 18 in Tel Aviv. That will send a message.

Obama clandestinely donated almost a billion dollar to Hamas through the U.N. His condolences my ass. He’s an accomplice.

Sounds like time for a red line in the sand, an admonition that “they are on the wrong side of history”, and a strongly-worded letter. That’ll show them.

Are they even sure it was Hamas? There have been reports of ISIS showing up, and didn't a group associated with ISIS say they were responsible?

A shooting war in the West Bank at this time will give ISIS an opening to the sea.

Well, he hasn't sent the families an iPod with all of his speeches on it.

Yet.

This will be a non-event in most European countries. You know those awful Israeli teens were probably asking for it anyway. The poor Palies...what could they do but kidnap and shoot the teens for hiking. (snicker)

If this had been Israelis who had kidnapped three Palie teenagers and murdered them, you can bet it would be three inch headlines in all the Euro rags. Every time the murdering Palie slime do something like this, the Israelis ought to take three Palie prisoners and shoot them in public. Nothing will impress the Palie subhumans but force.

“I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation.”

Those despicable words alone ought to have Israeli attack aircraft warming up on the runway.

It isn't that simple. The threat has gone global. Boka Haran is wreaking havoc in Africa. Libya is still destabilized because the US and NATO destroyed a perfectly wonderful dictatorship there. There are reports of those mad Chechnyans getting involved, and we saw with the Boston Marathon a year ago that Muslims from their neck of the woods have crazies in the US. Refugees are crossing the Med from Libya to Italy, plenty of them potential terrorists. France, England, and even some parts of China have Muslims ready to riot. This is serious stuff, caused by the US overthrowing govs that were dictatorships, for sure, but they pretty much kept their nutcases in line. These new nutcases on the block....ISIS....have learned the lesson. They fought the wars for the west, and don't see any point in giving the west power to in turn give them the Assad-Khadaffi-Sadam treatment.

I don't think anyone expected a terror group this powerful, savvy, and determined to arise from US-Saudi mis-steps in Syria.

In a statement, Israel’s Shin Bet security service identified the men as Marwan Qawasmeh and Amer Abu Aisheh. It said both men are activists from the Hamas militant group in the West Bank city of Hebron, near where the youths disappeared on June 12.

Israel identifies suspects in alleged kidnapping

I know, but it's not really important who did the murders. I'm sure Mossad knows who did it and will take care of them. It's a good excuse for Israel to bomb the $hit out of Hamas.

Find them. Catch them. Pump them for names. Kill them. Dump them. Reciprocity is justice.

I, for one, am sick to death of this president ALWAYS chastising and warning and advising Israel!

Pompous ass.

He never does the same to the other side.
