At the special government cabinet meeting held this morning in the Kirya (IDF HQ) in Tel Aviv, Prime Minister Netanyahu stated, “I am able to say now, what I wasn’t able to say yesterday – those responsible for the kidnapping are Hamas, the same Hamas with whom Abu Mazen formed a unity government, and there will be serious consequences.”

Netanyahu added, “We are taking all steps to return the kidnapped home. I give a hug and encouragement to all the families from all of Israel.”

Two Hamas terrorists in Hebron went into hiding last week, and it is believed they are involved in the kidnapping.

The names of the three boys kidnapped in Gush Etzion are, Eyal Yifrach (19) from Elad, Naftali Frankel (16) from Nof Ayalon and Gil-ad Sheyar (16) from Talmon.

Eyal Yifrah (19), Gil-Ad Shayer(16) and Naftali Frenkel (16)

  15. One question: all terrorist organizations do not belong to Al Qaeda and all Palestinian terrorists are not all members of Hamas, is not it? They are only great cowards who use the Koran so shameful

  16. Tim Whittemore says:

    Hope they are returned wiser, and safely…as for terrorists, hope they have a new career as compost.

  17. Nice Guy says:

    quietly inform the reporters and newspapers of EVERYCOUNTY that has reporters in Israel….they must submit their stories to your censureship or: foreign reporters will be deported and banned from Israel for five years/Israeli reporters imprisoned one month and Israeli mags and papers shut down one month or more if they blab too much….I think this can be handled quietly…..publically ask for help from Hamas and PA etc in finding the LOST BOYS who got lost…..if they turn them over then praise them publically for finding your lost boys….privately with out mention in any paper (subject to reporters being deportered and or arrested) shut off electric in gaza…..when asked about it say that there is technical problem but you are 100% involved in finding the lost boys and have no time nor personal available for fixing the gaza problem but as soon as the boys are found you will assign large amt of workers to fix the gaza problem and electricity should most likely be promptly restored…and leave the electric OFF until the boys are found…..alive….quietly let all arab groups (HAMAS fatah PA) know that 1)the 100 million tax money Israel collects for PA will suffer a penalty if the boys are dead and each boys family gets 10 million dollars (total 30 million) out of that tax money and if bus exploded same thing from now on….even if all the money is used up!
    ALSO>>>>ten prisoners each day boys are missing shall be executed by random drawing…or even pick worst prisoners first….anyway without any news reporters told nor allowed to know….execute ten prisoners each day…don't worry the arabs will get the news out to their people!

    do not deny nor confirm…just ignore…if the boys are killed then 100 terrorists in prison per boy are executed in one or two days!
    the terrorists will decide that NO propaganda advantage since you silence all reporters (before/during/and after the kidnapping….all news is dead on these type stories….because ACTIONS speak louder than words!)
    when the arabs realize you TAKE ACTION quietly and a)discuss zero
    and b)give in nothing to them….they get zero deals! the only advantage to them in releasing the boys alive is the arabs avoid serious consequences! but NO advantages to killing the boys…no release of prisoners! no stopping builing houses no loss of Jewish land…no advantages to arabs…..let them quietly know they get screwed if boys harmed ! PERIOD! and do NOT publically blame anyone….only story is boys lost in Israel, we need all the help we can get…we would appreciate and thank anyone who finds and returns our lost boys and that includes PA hamas fatah etc….
    I think my plan will work if they believe you are NO BULL ….the ten executions per day and the awarding of the money to the families will convince arabs you are NO BULL! and not afraid of them!
    if you do any other plans…..the arabs will continue to kidnap and kill and blow up buses because ISRAEL media reporters and Israeli govt
    falls apart and is 100% occupied with scared words about the boys….
    actions speak louder than words speak softly and execute arabs

  18. Tim Whittemore says:

    You didn't sir. Helped MB in Libya pretty quick, Letting Iraq stew with a few airstrikes…on this he's been silent. I honestly think that by his actions and inaction's (IMHOO) he has ensured that he will be the first and last POTUS of color, and this is sad in what it says about us.

  19. Alan Kardon says:

    Tim Whittemore It is really sad that we picked someone not qualified to be a President.

  20. Alan Kardon says:

    If they are this crummy as a person I doubt they would make good compost. Landfill a better option. They will feel better to be with their own kind, garbage.

  21. Go get them BEN..

  22. Go get them BEN..

  23. abu mazen, return the children immediately and unharmed or there will be no hamas alive with whom to have "unity".

  24. Judith Dowla says:

    Since you are certain it is Hamas then call upon Pope Francis for assistance with this matter since he has an amicable relationship with President Abbas of Palestine. That would be a good start for your President to take. Hope he does! Who is shepherding My People Israel?

  25. Netanyahu attack Gaza and annihilate Hamas let's see the Palestinians hand out sweets and cookies after that.

  26. Yes Bibi! May we strike fear in the hearts of those Arab terrorists!

  27. Cluster bomb the entire Gaza Strip NOW!! Give these *******s back the only thing they understand – violence and death.

  28. Cluster bomb the entire Gaza Strip NOW!! Give these *******s back the only thing they understand – violence and death.

  29. Cluster bomb the entire Gaza Strip NOW!! Give these *******s back the only thing they understand – violence and death.

  30. Judith Dowla of course there is a need for a strategic plan,but I'm sure that plan already lies on the table,it's just a matter of implementing it. Operation "Cast Lead"could have brought the solution but Israël let itself be reined back in by the heavy protests of the E.U.,the U.N. and the U.S. Israel has to take care of Hamas as soon as possible and this time for good, because if it does not destroy Hamas once and for all these problems will occur again and again.

  31. Besides Judith "All hell will break loose" anyway,it's just a matter of time. I hope Israel is prepared for it militarywise, I think it's better to act as soon as possible and in this way have the advantage of "first strike".
    Israel must prevent it's enemies from getting stronger and now is the time to act.

  32. How ? Unfortunately Israel don’t shot terrorist which they should . When Palestinian will start dying from Israel retaliation maybe they will think twice before throwing rocks or kidnapping .

  33. How ? Unfortunately Israel don’t shot terrorist which they should . When Palestinian will start dying from Israel retaliation maybe they will think twice before throwing rocks or kidnapping .

    Nice Guy, you are right on! I think this is the exact way it should be handled. It's time to burn the garbage – it stinks!!!
