White House Condemns Murders of Eyal, Naftali, Gilad

The White House issued a careful statement Monday evening in response to the discovery of the bodies of Eyal Yifrach, 19, Naftali Frenkel, 16 and Gilad Sha’ar, 16.

The three Israeli teens were kidnapped on June 12 while on their way home from school and murdered by Arab terrorists.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms violence that takes the lives of innocent civilians,” Press Secretary Josh Earnest said, in response to the news that the bodies of the missing teens had been found.

Naftali Frenkel is also a citizen of the United States.

  10. Fran London says:

  11. Michelle Rod says:

    we don’t need your condemnation, we need you to stop funding HAMass

  12. Noel Flores says:

    Either you are with Israel or not White House

  13. Lisa Kamins says:

    tell obama and all associated with the white house that they are irrelevant, they have NO value, their opinions are worthless, and their very existence it a waste of air and water.

  14. obama a useless ‘stick dreck’

  15. I'm sorry but we don't need condolences. We need to find our bitachon and emunah and chase Ishmael out of the Holy Land!

  16. DECLARE WAR destroy hamass and abass.

  17. Camie Davis says:

    In the mean time, they will keep funding the PA, will push Israel to release the terrorists who commit violence against civilians, and will go ballistic if anyone slanders islm.

  18. White House finally learned their names!

  19. Scott Soffen says:

    NO–BOEHNER is a drunk!

  20. Scott Soffen says:

    Sign that HALIBURTON? YOU Are a waste.

  21. Scott Soffen says:

    Yeah and NO ONE IN THE GOP is a piece of garbage. ALL outstanding Americans. YOU are a moron.

  22. Same on the Whitehouse. As an American I will say how sorry I am that my country sat on their ass and did not condem this when it happened. One og

  23. Seriously???? Now it speaks. And this is what it says???!! By ‘it’ I mean the Obummer garbage, best friend a pal, a known Jew hater, hater of Israel, who helped the Obummer get to the White House with promises of putting pressure on Israel. Don’t worry. May Hashem give him everything He feels he has coming to him.

  24. One of the boys was American and they should have stepped up for that reason at the very least.

  25. I do pray and hope the world knows. The White House is pounding Americans into the ground and that we want a reversal of just about every policy foreign and domestic,

  26. Porl Wright says:

    On behalf of rational people still living in America, I apologize for Peggy Baayen’s remark. Even if Obama were Muslim, the type of Muslim elected to the White House would *not* be a radical affiliated with the Middle Eastern radicals. A radical African-American Muslim would be part of the NOI or the Five Percent Nation which are movements concerned with inequality and injustice here in America and nothing really to do with the struggles in Israel. Peggy, please educate yourself.

  27. Morry Barak says:

    **** obama and his hippie mama!

  28. Loren Renee says:

    I can’t even bear to read this- I know it’s such bull****.

    This is the strongest condemnation that Hussain Obama could express from the White House??? (The white mosque)!!!

  30. Alexx Bar says:

    ………………………………………………………………………

  31. So stop giving Hamas Money

  32. Exactly what I was wondering! No sanctions on PA for its unity with Hamas?

  33. Gary Compton says:

    The WH is happy — Obama**** is Muslim !!

  34. Peggy Baayen says:

    Porl, I am still free to say what I want. Don’t apologize for me. Obama is a muslim or at least supports them. He is a pathetic excuse for a leader. Please. My. Netanyahu, on the other hand, is a man.

  35. This is bull****. They made the statement so that Israel does NOT go in blazing

  36. Peggy Baayen says:

    And yes, both parties are shameful.

  37. What do mean careful condemnation!? What happen to the BOYS is wrong. They were children.

  38. Stu Katz says:

    Porl you are a stupid ****!
