Guest Post: Kidnapped Jewish Teens and Search and Rescue

כ' לחודש השלישי תשע"ד

Pray for the kidnapped teens....

Yekutiel Ben-Ya'akov

There is unprecedented unity in Israel as millions pray for the immediate release and safety of the three Jewish teens who were abducted by Arab terrorists from Gush Etzyon.

There are many lessons to learn from this incident. As long as we allow our enemies to live amongst us they will continue to plot against us. The IDF continues to blame police for their inexcusable late response, only many hours, after they received notice from one of the boys that he was kidnapped. The police actually received notification minutes after the abduction. However, the GSS (Shabba"k) and IDF were only tipped off by police many crucial hours later.

We warned the Knesset State Controller's Committee, 4 months ago, Feb. 18th when I was asked to testify before a special Committee convened to investigate police treatment of missing people searches. My first words to the Committee were about the extreme delay in police response to missing people reports and how the police commence searching far too late, losing vital and critical time that could translate into life or death for the missing subject.

See page 5 of that Knesset Committee transcript.

We have offered our services to the Commander of the Missing Persons Unit in the army and we may yet be called in to help in the search with the use of our specially trained dogs.

Canine training this week tomorrow in Beth Shemesh at 3 PM, Tapuach at 6 PM, Leshem at 9.30 PM (Call for days)

Thursday special SAR training on rubble sight at 7 PM

Our Israeli Dog Unit is in need of more volunteers and in need of finding to maintain our canine units.

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
I was recently informed that it was the Israeli Police which delayed passing the information onto to the IDF and to the GSS. Apparently, the police actually received a call from one of the abducted boys saying that they were being kidnapped.

And, by the way, did anyone think that the kidnappers had to have stolen an orange, Israeli license plate to replace their green, "P" license plate, in order to disguise their car??

Curiouser and curiouser...

It would be very interesting, indeed, if the Shabba"k came up as the heroes of the hour, successfully rescuing these boys, the same Shabba"k, albeit a different "Jewish" department, feared by so many settlers. Perhaps they will then be convinced that they need the Shabba"k in their lives.

I can't help wondering if the policeman who took the call might have been an Arab.
