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.

  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….

  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!!!!!

    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

  56. GREGG K MOORE.
    YOU MUST BE OUT OF YOUR MIND¿¿¿¿ ISRAEL DOES NOT KILL THERE OWN CHILDREN,
    WHAT TYPE OF DRUGS+ALCOHOLE ARE YOU ON???

  57. should kill them all, **** them

  58. R.I.P
    Done the violence!
    Shalom Salaam!

  59. But who will investigate it? Is it Israels responsability? Warm thoughts to the mourning family!

  60. An Arab boy or a Muslim boy?

  61. I am sad to hear anout kidnaping, if the doer was Israelite I an disappointed at their Jihadist behavior.

  62. Pallies kill their own as a religious act to defend Islam.

  63. Sue Johnson says:

    I love Israel and hate what happened. But killing children is always wrong. No one knows who did this. Yes, it very well could have been done by Palestinians. But whether it was done by Jews or Palestinians, this kind of behavior is horrible. I think most of the Jewish people are above it. Not most of the Palestinians.

  64. Sue Johnson says:

    Tacky. A child is still a child. It should not matter whose child. Sadly, so many Palestinian children have been taught to hate.

  65. To each one of you hoping it was an Arab who killed this boy instead of a Jew and especially those who say it would be ok if it were done to make israel look bad or those who say, no big deal because he would grow up to do heinous acts- SHAME ON YOU. Death of a child is a tragedy a horrible thing.
    Yes if it was done as revenge – and is proven to be so, there are POTENTIALLY terrible implications. But only if it’s dealt with from the same callous frankly disgustingly place as where those comments come from in each of us. The world will always judge us- history has shown us this over and over again- but it is our job OUR DUTY as Jews to strive for better to be better. What do you think TIKKUN OLAM is about??
    A child had been killed. A family is broken from their loss. We should mourn for them and find WHOEVER did this and bring him or her or them to justice.

  66. Sue Johnson says:

    True. Not all arabs are muslim.

  67. Hamas propaganda. I call BS on this one.

  68. A terrorist is still a terrorist. Sue you need to educate yourself about the situation. About how the ” Palestinians ” use children to wage terror against Jews.

  69. This is horrible too

  70. Gary Gien says:

    Of a Arab terrorist

  71. Oh vey! I feel very sorry for his parents. This should not happened at all, Poor innocent youths, only because of the Israel/Palestine conflict , however I think (I hope I am wrong) that this is a revenge for the murder of the Jewish teenagers and that means the innocent Arab was murder by Israelis. Hopefully I am wrong, because that would be a shame among Israelis. The world is against Israel and if it is an Israeli, I am affraid it will be a new intifada .

  72. Don’t know what goes thru the minds of those on either side as they kidnap and kill young people.

  73. Stu Katz says:

    If done by a Jew, that person should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If not for the moral reason, to prove that the State of Israel does not permit the murder of any innocent.

  74. Ira Abramson says:

    Three wrongs do not make one right.

  75. Marie Parker says:

    Sad that youth cannot feel safe

  76. They are so sick that they killed him and blamed the Jews for it

  77. Still not understand?
    Killing children, no matter if jew or muslim, is a big act of cowardy.
    It is violence at its maximum extent.
    I see how some of the persons that comment here change their profile photos from a simple smiling one to an anger-faced one, showing a gun in their hands.
    This is ridiculous.
    Can’t you see how bonded are you in this little satanic game?

  78. Ken Gesser says:

    They don’t know who did this. Irresponsible to report that it was Jews without any proof! Just like th U.N. said when our boys were kidnapped, where is the proof?

  79. Reports from senior officials is this is an honor killing which happens all the time with Arab families. In fact just last week most recently. Sorry, the reality is unfortunate, but has to be considered.

  80. If this is true I don’t agree, if he was killed by Jews they should be found and dealt with. Unfortunately if it is the Arabs fighting with each other then we won’t know. But no eye for an eye.

  81. John Hanson says:

    this is exactly what Hamas wanted !

  82. And by the way Ma’am. Since you’re ready to blame a Jew for this, I’ll say this. If it was, the entire Jewish people and Govt of Israel would condemn it, find the killer, bring them to trial and condemn them some more. Because that is what one does. You won’t see us running around celebrating holding one finger up in the air.

  83. I Don’t Condone Murder. This Is A Child. I Don’t Care Who’s Child. If It Were Arabs Or Jews Who Killed This Child They MUST Be Brought To Justice. I feel the same pain as I did for our three boys. My heart breaks when children are murdered!

  84. Feraco Ed says:

    Killed by arabs/muslims! Not by Jews!

  85. Wouldn’t be surprised they killed one of their own to create a scenario to blame Israel. They do that routinely.

  86. I don’t like but I’m glad Israel has got the guts to pay back. Tommy.

  87. There are many Israeli Arabs….havent any of you read about the Arabs jailed (terrorist) threatening the young Israeli Arab youth for holding up a sign last week…to bring our brothers home safely….referring to the three that were murdered. The Arabs killing their own is nothing new.

  88. The Arabs terrorists performed a human sacrifice to blame it on israel. The demons Arabs are fully capable of killing their own people. they believe in suicide bombings so this suicide is of their own hands. The lying Arabs has conjured this up. Sorry our beautiful people Jewish people did NOT kill this Arabs (suicide or killed by their own).
