No Hostages Yet, but At Least Cops Nab Teenage Jews

Police can't find missing teens, but at least they nabbed three "truly" dangerous criminals.

Israel Police may have yet to find Gil-Ad Shayer and Naftali Frenkel, the two 16-year-old yeshiva students who kidnapped by Palestinian terrorists a week-and-a-half ago (not to mention Eyal Yifrah,19, abducted at the same time). But at least the police can take “pride” that they’ve nabbed another 16 year old: This one, a resident of Beitar Illit, is suspected of throwing Molotov Cocktails at Arab cars near the entrance to the city in reaction to the abduction. In addition, police apprehended two children accused of throwing stones at the same demonstration.

The three were arrested last Monday evening and have admitted their guilt. The were brought to the Jerusalem Magistrates Court  and released to house arrest.

During the court session, Itamar Ben-Gvir, representing the suspects on behalf of the Honenu legal aid organization, stressed the “high tensions” in Israel following the kidnappping of Frenkel, Shayer, Frenkel and Yifrah, but also noted that the teenagers studied with the two of the children that were abducted.

Friday, indictments were filed in the district juvenile court.

“It’s great that the court freed these minors, but I am very critical of the police and the state prosecutor who should have exercised better judgement in this case,” said Ben-Gvir. “These are very, very circumstances. The entire Jewish people is following, with great concern, the fate of the missing boys, and I don’t want to presume to ‘get into the heads’ of their friends. One of the boys I represent knows one of the kidnapped boys personally. I would have expected a bit more considerate and empathy from the prosecutor’s office and from the police.

    Throwing Molotov cocktails at cars is a crime in all civilized countries.

    hold on, dear fellow, brother in pain, but violence against our cousins ismaelites only will bring back more violence as result.

    Retaliate with the same forces that the savages use against Israel- the only language they will understand

  6. Earl W. Littlefield Jr says:

    If "throwing Molotov Cocktails at Arab cars" is not a crime then throwing Molotov Cocktails at Jewish cars is not a crime. If a 16 year old Jew is incapable of committing crimes, then a 16 year old Arab is incapable of committing a crime.
    Inflammatory chants & writings may be popular in your local community, but globally, they create a very negative image of Israel & Israeli people in Judea & Samaria in particular……

  7. Anonymous says:

    What is important here is that this misguided teen has been arrested and will face consequences for his actions. Unlike in "Palestinian" society where he would be considered a hero for such violence, and truly hailed if someone had died as the result of the Molotov cocktail.

  8. Kenneth Schreier says:

    Returning indiscriminate violence, just does not usually work but does indeed usually lead to more discriminate violence against innocent people who happen to be of the same race or religion of those guilty of causing the violence in the first place. The three kidnapped Israeli students will not be any safer or made to return any faster because of the rock throwing of the three Jewish boys arrested by Israeli police.
    They have indeed the right to feel anger but what they did was wrong. I am sure that they will be reprimanded and be returned to their families.
    The hate and violence must end and children are the future and must be taught that wanton violence is not the answer to achieve your ways!!
