We are all waiting and praying and hoping for the safe return of the three kidnapped teenagers.
I am going to say it: they were targeted because they are Jews. They went to Yeshiva and wore keppahs. We need to stop saying it is for any other reason. Yes, they are Israelis, but they were targeted because they are Jews.  They were not kidnapped because of talks breaking down. They were not kidnapped because of any policy of any government. They were kidnapped because they are Jews. Jew hate caused this. The same hate that drives Hamas to film cartoons aimed at children where cuddly characters tell the kids that Jews are subhuman and deserve to be killed. The same hate that drives Hamas to shoot rockets at Israel. The same hate that drives the Palestinan Authority to ask people to destoy CCTV footage so the IDF cannot find the teenagers. I dont know why this continues to surprise me. hat is why I find the propaganda of Fatah and Hamas so digusting.  The same lies just keep getting repeated. It is no different than the Nazi propaganda that Joseph Goebbels used. It is now just repackaged into Pro Palestinan hate for Jews. This is not something all Palestinans feel. The thing is this: what Hamas has done has made life WORSE for them. and they know it. Israel will not rest until these children are found. Maybe then we will all sleep.
