Instead of Responding to Abduction Calls, Police Arrested Jews

What were police doing during the three-and-a-half hours it took them to respond to reports of the abduction?

Despite a phone call from one of the teenage boys and an official notification at 10:45 that three boys had been kidnapped Thursday night, Israel police waited more than three-and-a-half hours Thursday night before alerting IDF officials that three teenagers had been abducted.

According to Honenu, an Israeli legal aid organization, police and security forces spent the interim period rounding up Jews from Yitzhar.

At around 3 am Friday, a large contingent of police, Yasam paramilitary troops, spies and members of the Jewish section of the Shin Bet internal security service attacked the community and arrested three teenagers, two 16-year-old brothers and an 18-year-old. The brothers are suspected of involvement in several anti-Arab security incidents near Yitzhar and were interrogated at the police station in Ariel. Sunday, too, security forces took time off of the search for the teenage hostages in order to re-stain the two teens. They also detained the boys’ father, in an apparent attempt to pressure the boys.

According to a statement by Honenu, the suspects said they would refuse to cooperate with security forces “as long as Jewish teenagers are being held hostage by Arabs.”

The security establishment has lost its moral compass and forgotten who is friend and who is foe,” the organization said. “There is a direct relationship between the security forces’ lost of proportionality, having devoted enormous sums to create special units to deal with Jews and police’s failure to respond immediately to reports of abducted Jews, and the re-emergence of Arab terror. When our leaders declare that any scrawl of graffiti is ‘terrorism’, we get a painful reminder of what terrorism really is.”

    It is unfortunate that Israel has not learned from The Tanach upon relying on foreign leaders to help them. Having a deep love for Israel myself; It would be my prayer that The Leadership learn from the forefathers and once again turn to Hashem for her sole help. I as much as any Israeli wants to see positive and permanent stance for peace and stability. Gone is the time of trusting in nations and their leaders for help. That leaves only one source for help.

    Let them calm down!!!!

  3. Ida Wax says:

    Jewish blood is so cheap. If Arabs were kidnapped the
    Shoe would be on a different foot. These policemen should rot in jail with their Arab friends.

  4. I don’t believe this article, because there are MORE IDF Police that could have responded to the abduction of the teens, not just “these three IDF officers. What is the REAL reason why there wasn’t a response? Stop trying to think that Jews, expecially in America would believe this!

    That’s a lie..

  7. Hey guys priorities

  8. Quit, dogging the Police; it serves no purpose. Teenagers do all sorts of things. In US it takes longer time to be considered missing person! You know that!

  9. Kenneth Hammond says:

    Israeli society, is such a delusional society, only interested in hearing and heeding comment that reenforces and supports its delusional beliefs.

  10. Arab extremists use their children as human shields and brain wash them to be suicide bombers. Jewish extremists move their families to an hostile environment and send their children unescorted to Yeshivot. The coin of the extremist has two sides, one Moslem and one Jewish. Throw it up in the air and whatever side is uppermost is as bad the other.

  11. Anonymous says:

    Jews are the worst enemy of the Jewish people
    the police has lost it they are all nuts
    they are so scared at what the Arabs will say so the law is held on the defenseless Jews when I was a policeman we learned how to act with Arabs and it worked they were doing what they were told today the police is SCARED of the Arabs COWARDS COWARDS

  12. Tennille Thomson says:

    The problem is that Jews aren't safe anywhere – where would you suggest they go for safety. Have you read any global news reports?
