It is only one Jewish youngster. Israel doesn't really care when terrorists act like this. At best, the terrorist will serve a little time in prison and then let go in some prisoner exchange or another. This story is hardly new news anymore. Just another terrorist causing mayhem in Israel.

Israel must tell the P.L.O. that they are suspending talks until there is a significant period of time without violence and a stopping of their incitement to violence. It is better for Israel to stop the talks and give a good reason therefore blaming it on the "Palestinians" then for Abby Mazon to use building of apartment buildings as an excuese to stop the talks therefore blaming Israel.

Why does Israel let an ignorant, semi-litterate overly botoxed doofus like Kerry dictate conditions for them? The U.S. needs Israel more than vice versa. This administration is one step away from being anti-semitic.Time to put on the big boy pants, and tell the US to cram it.
He is with our Maker…however, our thoughts and prayers are with his family. I feel he is our son…we Jews are all one. When something like this happens, the bells toll for him and for all of us as well. Descanse en Paz, Eden Atias!!!
This isn't just one Jewish life, it is a scar on all Jewish souls. Here is a young boy just opening his eyes, ready to serve his country with hopes to also leave a blueprint for a better world but his ideals were blighted by what? a filthy arab! one that doesn't know that Israel is the place that would have most probably given him a job and fathered the bastard – that is the trouble, they, the arabs are so indoctrinated with hatred and venom that they have no neshuma – We can only wish Eden Atias's family long life – Kerry, this happened on your watch!
All people in Israel cared when a soldier died. If you look at the time served in prison, they're in for life. Only something crazy like this peace table with Abbas demanding criminals to be let out has affected the time served and then they took out men who had been in the longest-horrible though they were. Redbear, are you an Israeli like I am? Every time we hear these things, no matter how many times we hear it, it causes unhappiness and anger.
This is proof of the teachings going on in Judea/Samaria and of course, Gaza. The kids are being programmed to hate Jews and Israel in school, in their books, on TV, and from their hatefilled parents. And these are the ones to be future neighbors! Oh sure. Before any peace program is even discussed this needs to change.
this is why peace seems so remote and utopia; it takes two to tango; so, unless the Palestinian side would stop educating generations of haters, any negotiation or agreement towards peace is pointless; it won't happen in our current generation for sure
