Skip to comments.White House's 'Condolences' for Murdered Israeli Teens Will not be Enough

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.
was there a hashtag?
Maybe he will fly over for 18 in Tel Aviv. That will send a message.
Let Israel liquidate and eradicate Hamas....any opposition to this is vile Anti-Semitism
There was! What a strong leader we have! (spit)
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.
Did Moochelle hold up a sign while putting on her concerned face?
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.
How about this one:
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.
Obama and his minions suck bigtime. Major condolences to the teens’ families.
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.
Most Israeli's know it too.
Who cares? Kill them all. Let Allah sort them out!
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.
