Skip to comments.A Requiem for Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Shaar, Naftali Fraenkel, and Mohammed Karaka

On June 30, the Embassy of Israel announced: With great sadness we must announce the bodies of Eyal, Gilad and Naftali have been found near Hebron. Our thoughts are with their families.
The scenario looked familiar at first. Hamas claimed it had nothing to do with the abductions, but if it had, it would be a great thing. Fatah claimed that most Palestinians supported the abduction. Parents gave their children candy and celebrated the capture of vermin or soldiers (the abduction was acted out many times with three figures in IDF uniforms). Palestinians walked past Israelis waving three fingers for the three teens and taunted Jews at the Temple Mount. The hapless Mahmoud Abbas said one thing in English and another in Arabic.
Last week, another Israeli teen was riding with his father to a job site when a Syrian missile struck their truck, killing the boy and another person, and injuring the father. There was an immediate burble about settlers and Zionists from some of the usual candidates -- until it was understood that the teen was an Israeli Arab from the Galilee. The president-elect of Israel, Ruby Rivlin, visited the family in their home.Your son is everyone's son, Rivlin told the boy's father, Fahmi Karaka. I came here to express my condolences in the name of all citizens of the State of Israel, Jews, Druse and Muslims.
Until the Palestinians, or ISIS, or Iran, or Bashar Assad, or Nouri al-Maliki, or the Ayatollahs or the Taliban take that view, the larger war continues with Eyal, Gilad, Naftali, Mohammed and their parents as only its latest victims.

We mourn your sons with you, Israel. God rest their souls.
