EU Condemns Terrorist Kidnapping – 5 Days Later

The European Union finally came out Tuesday with a statement of condemnation against the terrorists who kidnapped three teenage yeshiva students – five days after the incident took place. Two 16 year old boys, one of whom is an American citizen, and a 19 year old, were abducted in Gush Etzion while hitchhiking to reach their homes last Thursday evening in order to spend time with their families for the Sabbath. Public bus service in the area — which is completely under Israeli administration and security control in accordance with the internationally-recognized Oslo Accords — is infrequent and hitchhiking is common as a result.

“We condemn in the strongest of terms the abduction of three Israeli students in the West Bank and call for their immediate release and safe return to their families,” said the statement issued by the EU.

“Such acts can only undermine international efforts to encourage a resumption of peace negotiations. We are following developments closely and remain in constant contact with our Israeli and Palestinian counterparts.”

The statement was later even than the one issued by Palestinian Authority unity government chairman Mahmoud Abbas, tepid as it was. Moreover, the abduction came barely 24 hours after an EU delegation visited Gaza to express their support for the Hamas-backed ministers who had just been sworn into office in the new PA unity government two days earlier.

    You’re way off here and you’re pushing people away. I suspect you’re one of the very few that has never encountered violence. What will happen when you witness or are involved in being attacked? Hope someone will help you rather than saying ‘chillax’

  24. Took them long enough…lol ….

  25. The European Union is as disgusting now as it always has been when it comes to Jewish people and Israel, so this is nothing new. After all, most of the Nazi-occupied European countries were perfectly happy to send all their Jewish citizens to be murdered. Why expect anything different now? When Israel was declared a Jewish State, some countries (Slovakia is a good example) began hunting and killing Jews – scarcely 3 years after the war had ended. This is their mentality, and we had better understand that it is not going to change. No matter that Muslim behaviour throughout the world is rotten to the core – when it comes to Israel and Jews, then Islamist Arabs are the "good guys." No matter how many lies and libels this is based on – this is what Europe, including the UK – insists on believing. They will never change.

  26. I do not care what they have to say. WE HAVE GOD

  27. Let’s all pretend UN hasn’t accommodated, protected and funded agents of hate worldwide, and is not itself an agent of satan
