White House Statement, Finally, on Terror Kidnapping

The White House has finally managed to ‘catch up’ on the terrorist kidnapping of three Israeli teens last week — one of whom was also an American citizen.

In a tepid statement posted on the Twitter social networking site, President Barack Obama (at least it appears to have been written by or for the president) said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of 3 Israeli teens who were kidnapped last week. May they be reunited with their sons soon.”

But although the statement was clearly written to be as neutral as possible, a quick glance at the comments posted in response makes it obvious the president is ‘damned if he does, and damned if he doesn’t.’

A flurry of condemnations followed the statement, including screams of protest about ‘prayers’ (‘Can we leave prayer out of this please. You’re the White House.”) Others demanded to know “What about Palestinian kids???”

    Muslim culture is a savage culture, brutalized everyone involved in it. It is a religion of hate. Sunni hate the ****ties(I think I spelled that wrong). They kill rape, kidnap, enslave and torture people will do not believe as they do. The Koran teaches them this is alright. Xxx

    How about a strong personal statement of condemnation.
    He was quick to condemn the Boston policeman for supposed racial bias

  18. Expect nothing good to come out of this most islamic POTUS…he is a liar and the father of lies, with the cowardly Kerry they put up the politically correct front of 'diversity' and non commitment to anything right and moral…shun them, they hate us.

  19. Obama… too little, too late.

  20. I think this is one of those times where Obama made a good decision to weigh in late. And that's good

  21. Kenneth Schreier says:

    Obama's weak stand on terrorism, nuclear negotiations with Iran, chemical attacks by the dictator Assad of Syria on his own people, Russia's invasion of the Ukraine and the support of the union of Hamas with the palestinian Fatah government is the major cause of the terrorist takeover of Iraq, the kidnapping of the 3 Jewish boys and the rise of anti-Israel/Jewish prejudice in europe! The USA has become a paper tiger and is no longer feared by the terrorist or other governments who wish to go nuclear or invade other peoples countries.
    Obama's has conducted a failed foreign policy but could not care less.
    He just wants to finish his term and go on $200,000 speaking engagements and travel the world.
    What a let down for being the 1st African-American president in the US.
