Text of Rachel Frenkel’s Speech to the UN Human Rights Council

I believe much more can be done — and should be done — by so many. That is why we three mothers have come here today — before the United Nations, and before the world — to ask everyone to do whatever they can, to bring back our boys.
The mothers of the three Israeli boys kidnapped by terrorists were at the United Nations on June 23, 2014. Naftali Frenkel's mother addressed the UN Human Rights Council.

The mothers of the three Israeli boys kidnapped by terrorists were at the United Nations on June 23, 2014. Naftali Frenkel's mother addressed the UN Human Rights Council.

On behalf of UN Watch, my name is Rachel Frenkel, and I live in Israel. I’ve come here today as a mother. Twelve days ago, my son Naftali, and two other teenage students, Eyal Yifrah and Gilad Shaer — whose mothers are sitting behind me — were kidnapped on their way home from school. Since then, we’ve heard nothing — no news, no sign of life.

With your permission, I’d like to tell you about the boys. My son Naftali is 16. He loves to play guitar and basketball. He’s a good student and a good boy — a combination of serious and fun. Eyal loves to play sports and cook. Gilad is an amateur pastry chef, and loves movies.

My son texted me — said he’s on his way home — and then he’s gone. Every mother’s nightmare is waiting and waiting endlessly for her child to come home.

We wish to express our profound gratitude for the waves of prayers, support and positive energy, pouring in from around the world.

Being in this assembly, I wish to thank the UN Secretary-General for condemning the abduction of our boys, expressing his solidarity with the families, and calling for their immediate release.

And I thank the International Red Cross for stating clearly that international humanitarian law prohibits the taking of hostages, and for demanding the immediate and unconditional release of our boys.

At the same time, I believe much more can be done — and should be done — by so many. That is why we three mothers have come here today — before the United Nations, and before the world —  to ask everyone to do whatever they can, to bring back our boys.

Mr. President, it is wrong to take children, innocent boys or girls, and use them as instruments of any struggle. It is cruel. This council is charged with protecting human rights. I wish to ask: Doesn’t every child have the right to come home safely from school?

We just want them back in our homes, in their beds. We just want to hug them again.  Thank you, Mr. President.

  1. People are praying so nothing more needs to be done. Unless you are an atheist.

  2. Do you really think they care. These are only Israeli kids!

  3. Never give up, nevet give in, find the 3 missing boys!

  4. You think the UN cares? They hate Israel !

    …At the funeral of Izz Al-Din Al-Masr, the infamous killer who blew up a Sbarro
    restaurant, killing 15 people, in 2001, his mother had this to say:
    By Allah, today is the best day of my life. I feel that Allah is pleased with me,
    because I am offering something [my son] for Him. I wish to sacrifice more [sons] for Allah’s forgiveness, and for the flag of Islam.

    Juxtapose this admonition with that of the mother of Naphtali Fraenkel, one of the Israeli teenagers kidnapped last week: “We just want to embrace our children.”
    It’s unmistakable: the “Palestinian” mindset indicates a clash of culture, not a secular dispute.

    [It is not a clash betwenn civilizations, Islam is not a civilastion, it is neither a
    theological clash, Islam is not a Abrahamic Faith or Religion.
    Claiming that Islam is part of Abrahamic Faith or Religion,
    is the same as claiming Muhamad overnight journey on the back of a flying horse]

    Such rancor is beyond the limits most rational people can fathom.
    Yet it’s the reality of the Middle East conflict.

    As they’ve pressured and cajoled Israel into unrequited tangible concessions,
    [mental dhimmitude enslavement portrayed as policies of appeasements, goodwill gestures, compromises etc...]
    it’s perplexing that the Obama administration doesn’t distinguish or doesn’t care to recognize that from the “Palestinian” standpoint, this is a “holy” war.
    ["palestinians" say so, they even hold signs saying so & they act accordingly]

    “Palestinian” mothers are sending their kids off to meet Allah not just because some guy extended his porch in a Jewish settlement.
    More likely they are responding to the invocations of a moderator at a Fatah event in 2012 who proclaimed: “Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs [i.e., Jews] is a war of religion and faith. Long live Fatah!”

    …The crux of this conflict goes even beyond dar-al Islam, the Islamic concept that doesn’t allow for a non-Muslim country to exist on land claimed by Islam.

    The expressed aims of Hamas, Hezb’allah, and their offshoots isn’t just to banish Israelis from Israel, or even to return them to submissive dhimmitude; it’s to kill Jews, plain and simple.

    …When speaking of the Middle East conflict, nothing ever changes, except employing modern tools. Resurgent Islam is once again on the move. For those willing to remove blinders from their eyes, it’s not difficult to ascertain that the Palestinian/Israeli conflict is just one battle in a religious war being fought by Muslim zealots throughout the world.
