י״ז לחודש השלישי תשע״ד
Three Jewish boys were kidnapped by Yishma'elite (Arab) terrorists near Hevron.
By the way, how exactly did photos of these boys pop up in Saudi Arabia? The Arabs are not all working together against Israel, are they?? Gimme a break!
I certainly appreciate that the Israeli military cannot reveal any secret plans to get them back. So, this has been their public response thus far, a #hashtag campaign.
Here is one Jew's response to the IDF's #hashtag campaign.
"B"H - IDF, you don't have to make bold, propagandist declarations: Just do the job we pay you through the nose for!"In contrast to the Israeli #hashtag campaign, here is an Arab #hashtag campaign.
-Ariel Ben Yochanan of The Torah Revolution
The reference is to Gilad Shalit, whose release was negotiated in exchange for imprisoned Arab murderers with Jewish blood on their hands.

Read more at Elder Of Ziyon on the double standards applied by the so-called "international community" to Jews vs. Arabs. Jews are expected to adhere to international "rules," such as those of the Geneva Convention. On the other hand, Arabs are apparently not expected to so the same. And how can they? They are too busy handing out treats, in celebration of the kidnappings of Jews!
In contrast to the namby-pamby, nebachy, "write a letter, feel better" attitude of Galuth-minded Jews, there are other Jews out there taking a much different approach, such as setting up the following page on Facebook. Notice that there are already 8,957 "likes," and that was only as of this morning.
I wonder how long it will take for their to be complaints about this page, and for it to be taken down, in typical Facebook fashion.
|"Until the boys are returned, each hour, shoot an Arab Terrorist" [in our prisons]|
I wonder how the silly Leftists, and even silly super State-loyalists with kippoth on their heads would feel about this. No doubt they will speak from Galuth (exile) perspective, that as Jews we are above this sort of "barbaric" thing.
Are they really that naive and brainwashed, that they are completely unaware that "this sort of thing" is more in line with a Torah response than the restraint imposed on the Israeli Defense Forces [IDF]?
Whoops! I forgot. What do either of these groups care about an authentic Torah response?
In other words, since they ARE making war with us,....מי שמבין יבין.......אבל לאבדו בידו, או לדוחפו לבור, וכיוצא בזה--אסור, מפני שאינו עושה עימנו מלחמה. (רמב"ם, הל' עבודה זרה פרק י,א)
...But, to kill him by hand, or to push him into a pit, and other similar actions is forbidden, because he is not making war with us. (Ramba"m, Laws of Avodah Zarah 10:1)
The Ramba"m was very careful with the wording here. Of course, I doubt that we will find any state-"rabbis" willing to declare that we are indeed in a state of milhemeth misswah (obligatory war).
