The body of an Arab boy (17) from Shuafat, Jerusalem, has been found in the Jerusalem forest on Wednesday morning.

The boy has been identified as Mohammed Abu Khdeir.

Following reports that Abu Khdeir was kidnapped by three men near Beit Haninah on Tuesday night, Jerusalem police began a search for him.

Arabs from Shuafat claim the boy was kidnapped by Jews in a revenge attack, and certain Israeli elements rushed to lay suspicion on Jews for the act.

The area were the kidnapping happened has security cameras installed, and police are reviewing the footage.

There are unconfirmed reports that police have arrested a number of Arab suspects who were found driving in a car matching the description of the kidnapping vehicle, with suspicious items in the car.

Hadas Shteif of Galei Tzahal reports there was a failed attempt last week to kidnap the boy’s 7 year old brother, and this appears to be a fight between clans, and related to family “honor”.

But, if the Arab claim is true, and the boy wasn’t killed in a fight between Shuafat clans or in an honor killing, but by Jews, this act should be condemned in no uncertain terms.

It is the job of the Israeli government and the IDF, and not private individuals, to avenge the kidnapping and murder of Gilad Sha’ar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Fraenkel, against the terrorists and guilty parties.

Obviously, if it was a family honor killing it should be condemned too. And this culture of honor killings within Arab society must be eradicated.

At this point though, it does not look like a revenge attack.

The Jerusalem Light Rail will not be running through Shuafat today, for fear of Arab riots and attacks against the train.

The story will be updated as more information becomes available.

    When this murderer is found he / she will not be praised but tried and if found guilty will suffer the fullest extent of the law. BIG DIFFERENCE in how the Arabs handle it when one of their own kills a Jewish boy.

    Probably by his fellow Arabs to slander Jews and if Jews did it then it serves him right for celebrating and arrogantly holding three fingers mocking the victims.

  18. I seriously hope he was murdered by Arabs and not Jews seeking revenge because when an Arab dies the media takes notice and the world seems to care…

    Killed by their own, they do it all the time…

  20. Nobody is allowed to take the law in his hands;no jew no arabs;a killer has to pay and be put in jail;don,t kill and don’t miltreat not kids no big boys;in Israel only the court con punish the goverment has to act!

  21. You wrote, “It is the job of the Israeli government and the IDF, and not private individuals, to avenge the kidnapping and murder of Gilad Sha’ar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Fraenkel, against the terrorists and guilty parties.” No it is not. The army and the government exist to protect, not to avenge.

    Seems as if it was an internal clan fight between Arabs according to the footage. So relieved!

  27. Stuart Wragg says:

    It is annoying to see assumptions being made without facts being established. It also shows the bad in some who are clearly no better than the terrorists themselves. If we are to remain righteous and true wee should never stoopto the level of the terrorists. If we do then we are no better. We cry about young boys being murdered and then react the same way as Hamas when one of theirs is killed. This is wrong. Thankfully not everyone that is. There is hope after all.

  28. Racial and completely evil

  29. David Ring says:

    Not one of you shows any concern for the child or his family. You all want to point a finger and say his own people killed him. As if the IDF doesn’t kill children on a daily basis. As an American, I certainly understand that our armed forces are really good at killing kids. Regardless, I find it more than disturbing that people in Israel need a fence to separate themselves from people who are different than they are. I’d think Jewish people would be very aware of racism and it’s consequences. And all this fighting over what, who’s god is better than the other? I’ll let you in on a little secret; it’s all bull**** and there is no God. There is only the here and now and right and wrong. It’s hard for Israel to claim it needs protection when Israel holds all the power. And guess what, my ****ing tax dollars pay for it. USA!

  30. omgosh. So much violence in one tiny, holy place :(

  31. I don’t know who did this but it is wrong to wage war on children. Heartfelt sympathies to the parents.

  32. David Cohen says:

    Anthony Linn, the difference is it happens less often by Israelis. When the Palestinian terrorists kill children, the Palestinian crowds call them hero’s.

  33. When will it stop……never …I love Israel

  34. David Ring says:

    Keep it classy, sugar. Seeing your little children breaks my heart because I’m sure that’s the bull**** you fill their heads with.

  35. Now the Palestinians can hold up 1 finger instead of 3….

  39. Israel?is israel murdered three teens kidnaped for 3 weeks and later found their body laying on the dust?your hatred is very wicked than that of muhaMAD.

  40. Zak Klein says:

    Good, no sympathy for these dirty sons of bitches of hairy ass Ishmael.

  41. Iqbal Dinho says:

    Poor arab boy..may he rest in peace…this is really sad. Condolences to his family and may the killers be brought to justice

  42. Anthony Todd says:

    Mazhar Shah so what exactly was that?

  43. Harim Uzziel says:

    I wouldn’t doubt it was his own who did it

  44. This is nothing more than a very stupid, very clumsy attempt to blame Israeli Jews for a frame-up. The monsters that did this can’t seem to get it through their ugly heads that Israeli Jews are NOT like them, and do not make it their mission to kidnap and murder children, nor do they murder their own children like muslims do…every day. Very stupid, very obvious, so typical. I want them wiped off the face of the earth. LION OF JUDAH, ROAR!!!!!

  45. In ancient times, remember when one of Israel’s daughters was raped, the Torah says an entire city was killed in retaliation.

    I’m not saying it’s right. I know the mothers of the teens would never desire another mother to feel their pain. I hope suspicions are false

  46. Islam kills their own all the time. If one doesn’t adhere to their Islamic laws. Sad . But true. Families will kill their own if a family member puts their honor in jeopardy.

  47. Melody Rae says:

    Children are innocent, be it Jew or Arab

  48. How about we say stop with the killing!!!!!

  49. Henry Ladwig says:

    I support a free isreal

  50. They’re pathetic, evil. Not human.

  51. Judith Dowla says:

    Trisha, are you a Jew or a Christian?

  52. Judith Dowla says:

    Meredith, innocent until proven guilty. Or are you the judge and the jury and have second sight and saw everything in a vision.

  53. Nicky Hewie says:

    Poor family to have lost their vital spark. They ate suffering and need support. The loss of a child is something I wouldn’t wish on anyone.

  54. Lynne Horner says:

    You wonder the Muslims are capable of this” killing there children or women .there a sick bunch.

  55. jew or christian? what does it matter……they have done it many times before, national geographic’s picture of the year, of a boy and man being shot in cross fire was blamed on Israel. by the time the investigation was complete and proved that it was palistinian fire (just to make Israel look bad) the world didn’t care…it had done its job…..have you seen the paliwood film works……i have seen example after example leading me to believe, you can’t believe what palistians say! its an old story…cry wolf
