Canada Condemns PA Terror Kidnapping, But Obama’s Silent

Canada has firmly condemned last week’s Palestinian Authority terrorist kidnapping  of three teenage boys but U.S. President Barack Obama has yet to say a word about the attack — even though one of the hostages is an American citizen.

The boys are students at the Makor Chaim yeshiva high school at Kfar Etzion in Gush Etzion. They were apparently abducted somewhere near the Judean town of Alon Shevut, about 15 minutes south of Jerusalem.

Palestinian Authority Unity Government Arabs starting passing out candies and other sweets in the streets of Judea, Samaria and Gaza, to celebrate the attack after hearing about the kidnapping.

Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird issued the statement Saturday night, strongly condemning the kidnapping and reminding the PA in no uncertain terms that its paramilitary forces were trained, equipped and armed by Canada and the U.S.

“Canada is deeply concerned by reports that three Israeli teenagers may have been kidnapped in the West Bank and condemns those aiming to instigate conflict.

“We urge the Palestinian security authorities, who have been trained through Canadian and U.S. leadership, to make every effort to investigate this incident and work diligently to ensure the safe return of these children to their families.

“We call for the immediate release of the three Israeli teenagers. Whoever has taken this action must be found and brought to justice,” Baird said.

While Canada was unequivocal in its public condemnation of the terror attack on the three innocent teens, Israel’s “best friend” — the United States — has remained silent on the issue. The White House has made no public statement whatsoever, and the State Department restricted itself to a phone conversation between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Following is the transcript of the terse dialogue that took place between reporters and the State Department spokesperson as journalists tried to make sense of United States actions in the wake of the terrorist attack on the three boys Thursday night, especially given that one of kidnapped teens was an American citizen.

QUESTION: And last one, and this is in the Middle East. There’s reports coming out of the West Bank that there’s – three teens were kidnapped, and one of them is an American citizen. Do you have anything on that?

MS. HARF: We are aware – of course seen the reports, are very concerned for their well-being. The Secretary a short while ago expressed his concern in a meeting with Tzipi Livni in London and also has spoken with President Abbas this morning about it as well.

We are working with the Government of Israel and with the Palestinian Authority to try to ensure the situation is resolved quickly, and that the three teenagers are safely reunited with their families. I can’t confirm citizenship at this point.

QUESTION: Okay.

QUESTION: Did you – the Israelis say that the Palestinian Authority has – is responsible for their –

MS. HARF: I don’t have a readout of those conversations.

QUESTION: No, no, no. I understand that, but the Israelis are holding – say that the PA is responsible for their – these – the safety of these three teenagers.

MS. HARF: Well –

QUESTION: Do you share that?

MS. HARF: What we know is the Israelis and the Palestinian Authority are working closely together on efforts to find the three teenagers and to hopefully bring a quick resolution to the matter, and of course giving this cooperation our full encouragement.

QUESTION: But you don’t think that the PA –

MS. HARF: I don’t have more. I don’t have anything more on this, Matt.

QUESTION: Okay, all right. The Israelis also say that they told Ambassador Shapiro, right?

MS. HARF: Yes, Ambassador Shapiro.

QUESTION: Ambassador Shapiro, yes – about the one who has American citizenship. Can you confirm if there was a conversation between him and the Israelis about one of the three, regardless of whether you can confirm –

MS. HARF: I’m sure Ambassador Shapiro has been in contact on this.

QUESTION: All right.

For the record, the Fatah faction led by Mahmoud Abbas — who heads the Palestinian Authority Unity Government — has called on shopkeepers in Judea and Samaria via its official Facebook page to destroy their CCTV security camera footage in order to sabotage the IDF’s efforts to rescue the kidnapped teenagers and hunt down the terrorists who attacked them.

If the United States believes that handing out sweets to celebrate the kidnapping of Jewish children by terrorists and destroying security film footage to foil their rescue is evidence of how the new Palestinian Authority Unity Government “works closely together” with the Israeli government to find and rescue the kidnapped teens,  there’s a bridge for sale in Brooklyn. At a bargain price.

  1. Why Obama silent? because he is with the terrorists !!!

  2. Of course he is. He is an antisemitic ass with antiquated racist notions and blind hatred. I can’t wait until he is out of the White House. His actions speak volumes. The past will not repeat itself. Not again–not ever. Shane on you Mr. President

    I think many of us here have reached the point where we didn’t expect anything positive out of DC and if DC decided to make comment it would certainly have strings attached.

  58. Hmm you don’t suppose it has anything to do with the pres. Being a terrorist sympathizers make me so mad. I didn’t vote for him

  59. Ayy Excues me kind sir but give credit where credit is due. It’s not the PA it’s Hamas and probably their other partner in crimes. The PA announced that they’re trying to help find the boys! Now PM please do some PE before you pop a Molson!

  60. Our president won’t help a Marine (a real hero) in Mexico (a friendly nation) and will trade five terrorists for a deserter: why is anyone surprised he isn’t doing anything for a mere Jewish teenager taken in Israel??

  61. Cris Burns says:

    Oh stop criying, u burn people in Gaza, Mr Obama is too busy for this bs, so just rescue the kids and stop whining…

  62. Not surprising our government is staying silent. We sure don’t want to be seen as caring for one individual or three who may be in grave danger.

  63. wish we had such a leader

  64. Canada has a courageous Man leading the Country!!

  65. Where is BO ?
    Bring back a deserter but leave an American citizen in the hands of those religion of peace muse limbs

  102. The White House should have immediately issued a strong condemnation of the kidnappings. Further, Obama should have televised a statement that all U.S. support for peace talks would cease until the teenagers are returned unharmed. But nothing has been said or done?! What utter corruption at the highest level of this government.

  103. he does not want to be put in an awkward situation. he keep pressuring Israel to make peace with unpeaceful people. .the event flies in his face.

  104. The US will remain silent until Jewish leaders and Rabbis and the Establishment Jewish Organizations DEMAND the US govt treat American Jews as the voters we are. Until we demand the same respect our President gives others…keep wishing.

    The Obama administration will continue to support Fatah and Hamas no matter what, and resist Israeli efforts no matter what. Those who voted him in for a second term should be ashamed. He has a private agenda, not reflected by tha majority of Americans, that influences his every decision. So far he has been adept at pulling to wool over the eyes of his backers among the democrats, and few will criticize him for anything. His foreign policy has stunk from day one.

  132. Cody Flecker says:

  135. Cody Flecker says:

    The Jews flocked to vote for Mr. Obama and the rest of the Democratic hacks. You all created this mess, now you have to live with it. My entire family disowned me because I tried to warn them back in 2008 about this anti semite. Now it maybe too late for the Jewish People, and especially these three young men who were kidnapped.

  136. well said fellow jew

    Cody Flecker Not all "New York Jews" can be painted with the same brush. But that is something the will get you labeled an anti-semite.

  138. Douglas Ledet says:

    If you don't like Obama actions, don't vote for him next time. Oh wait, he is a lame duck president, who can't run again. I guess you will get what you want because he will not be president soon and then his decisions will not disturb you.

  139. Douglas Ledet says:

    For the record, I would run things much differently, but you most likely wouldn't like my decisions either!

  140. So Iron Dome, the most advanced weapons (that Bush refused Israel), increased intelligence cooperation, increased military cooperation . . . those are the "nothing" that Pres. Obama has done for Israel?

  141. So you say Pres. Obama doesn't care about captured US military? In your universe. Bergdahl was never released?

  142. Cody Flecker I've been hearing the same nonsense from BEFORE Pres. Obama was elected: "As soon as he's in office, you'll see . . ." "As soon as the mid-term elections are over, you'll see . . ." "The moment he's re-elected, you'll see . . ." Meanwhile, the Repubs have kicked to the curb their ONLY Jew.

  143. Not having Israel's back—you mean supporting Israel in the UN, sending advanced arms to Israel that Bush refused, having the largest military exercises with Israel . . . that's NOT having Israel's back?

  144. Cody Flecker I should have voted for anti-Semite Willard "Mitt" Romney, who converts Holocaust martyrs to his cult?

  146. Judith Dowla says:

    C16, We are a very conservative country with the goal being to never lean too far to the right, nor too far to the right, neither too far forward nor too far backward. There are Canadians who feel we are too conservative. They are permitted to say how they feel. They can always vote for the Liberals or the party of their choice. Personally, I would like to see the president of the USA spend more time with our prime minister for some brain storming on a few issues. At times two heads can work better together. Not in everything but in a lot. Always hope. Hope life in the USA works better for all Americans.

  147. Secretary Kerry: Tzipi Livni is NOT the Prime Minister of Israel, Binyamin Netanyahu is. He was ELECTED in a fair, democratic election by the citizens of Israel. He is the one you should be speaking to, not to mention your boss too. By the way, how about stopping your coddling of Israel's sworn enemies, who are also the enemies of the U.S.

  148. Judith Dowla says:

    Aronette, what you say could be true. When I checked his website I could tell he is overly busy with far too many things. How much can one person do? Seems like he needs more help from his staff and his people. Maybe he needs to increase his staff of helpers. It seems their burden is very heavy.

  149. Judith Dowla says:

    Gil, is there an imbalance of power within the US government itself. Appears to be a real struggle of getting together on thinking between the Democrats and the Republicans. That is the image presented to us our here in the world. So much time spent on elections and money and so much mud slinging between candidates. Where did the world RESPECT go to? We heard about the Ugly American. Time to hire someone to change that image to the Kind and Caring American. What say you Gil?

  150. Cody Flecker says:

    Shaya Dubin You can probably count the Republican or Libertarian Jews in New York on one hand. Think of it this way? How could a non resident carpetbagger like Hillary Clinton become a New York Senator without even being a resident of the State? The answer is that the Democrats voted for her en masse. Who are the biggest supporters of the Democrats in NY? The Jews of course.

  151. Judith Dowla says:

    Yes, Rodica, we do hope that the three young men are returned in good health with no harm done to them. That would be a wise move on behalf of the kidnappers. Hope for that.

  152. Chaya Maimon says:

    Right, deserters are heros. we trade terrorists for men who leave thier post, and have had at least 6 US non deserter soldiers die in order to rescue him. apparently men who serve with honor and take a wrong turn into Mexico, and young Jewish boys do not even eserve honorable mentions….

  153. Batya Mayson says:

    I am Canadian and Israeli and very proud of Canada for speaking out on the fact that terrorists using young boys as pawns is wrong wrong wrong

  154. Cody Flecker says:

    Carl B. Maltzman If it were not for the Mormons and other interested Christian groups, the State of Israel would have vanished a long time ago. Just like Hillary said"What difference does it make" if the Mormons baptize dead Jews…they are dead…who cares? The very first Governor
    of the State of Utah was a Jew. Who was the first Jewish Governor of the State of New York? and how many years apart was he the Governor than the one in Utah? Mormons, Evangelical Christians, people like Pastor Hagee, and a multitude of others are firmly in support of the Jewish People and the State of Israel. When will you become a supporter of Israel and the Jewish People?

  155. Esteban your'e dead right. Stephan Harper can't be compared to hubama because Stephen Harper is a much more polished HUMAN BEING whereas hubama is a low life satan

    Are you unaware that court appointments are not vacated, and that Supreme Court justices are appointed for life? A new President cannot 'sweep' the court systems clean.
    And I am happy that you are tired of 'MY KIND" – you are the very epitome of the leftists intolerance of anyone who does not agree with them. Well done! You display your nature by your ad hominem attacks. Keep it up!
