I agree with Sabrefencer. I put up a comment earlier but as odd as it may sound this media source censored my reply to this article, so it was not posted.

After 65 years of making war in Israel, the Palestinians have squandered too many opportunities. They should be removed back to Jordan, permanently.

Its such mindset, Sabrefencer why the cycle of violence has not stopped. Am sure there is enough genuine hurt on each side for the tit-for-tat to continue forever. Let us give peace a chance. The Palestinians might not be a match for Israel militarily but that should not be reason for the Isreali to think they are invincible.

GuitarGuyMV, couldn’t an equal and counter-argument be made about the other side too? Afterall, they have lived [continuously] in the place much longer than the other, most of whom are recent migrants from Eastern Europe. Granted, this point would only make sense to rational folks, not held hostage by something as irrational nonsensical as religion.

It’s only a matter of time until the Arab civil war closes in on and around Israel. I assume the U.S. has taken a stand on that matter.

Saberfencer, your comment makes no sense as kidnappings are nothing new. Israel has thwarted many attempts, however, as the article states this one slipped under the radar. Kidnappings have been going on all around the Muslim world for decades. And the US is far from weak. The majority just don’t want to see us bogged down in another Middle East war that accomplishes nothing. Have we learned nothing from the past decade and the mess Bush left us in.

Gee whiz, lots of headlines while a couple weeks ago Israelis used live bullets and killed two Palestinian teenagers at a protest. Where is the balance? The killing of the Palestinian youth was pure and simple murder and should be prosecuted as a war crime!

hamas is a terrorist element. abbas is now finding out just whose bed he is sleeping in.

Israel, do not let these young men die. bring in thousands upon thousands, and if they do die, occupy this heathen land permanently, and kill those responsible.

let God sort them out. you are his children.

“They arrested at least 12 Hebron area residents, including two women, confiscated video from privately owned security cameras and prevented around 300 residents from leaving the area, Palestinian officials and witnesses said. ”

Excactly how a demoratic country should react, exactly what would happen in France, German, US or even China.

Israel needs another 5 decades at least to learn how to deal with their security issues, but first they have to deal with mr Netanyahu.

@ I am not for war..i want peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis….but ,the Palestinians have been used by almost every arab govt for hatred against israel…with all the oil money floating around, the Arabs, have squandered a chance, forty or so years ago, to build them homes, farms, cities commerce..but they felt it was better to use them for hate…as cannon fodder…..then, when Arafat had 98% of what he asked for with Clinton…..Arafat said no…he blew it then, to the entire worlds’ disgust..the fact, that the Palestinians have wrecked Lebanon, wrecked Jordan, now are wrecking gaza, is no help either…hamas , Hezbollah, black septmber the plo, pflp, etc are just movements to kill, under the guise of freedom for the Palestinians…but it isn’t so…they need the hate, so they can steal all the aid, open swiss bank accounts and screw their own people, way more than the Israelis can… want peace..take the head two of the Israeli govt, the head two from the Palestinians, lock them in a room and no one comes out, till a deal is made….no advisors, no media, no nothing, just four people searching for a peace that has evaded all, for 70 some odd years….time for them to iron out an agreement, with no crap surrounding them….that is, if the Palestinians, are really committed to peace, which I feel they are not…they are just PR experts, being run by their handlers, in other countries..

EXAMPLE, AMERICANS ARE KIDNAPPED IN AMERICAN ALL THE TIME. THE SITUATION IS THE SAME IN EVERY COUNTRY FOR DIFFERENT REASONS. MALES LIKE TO KIDNAP AND RAPE.

“Hold the Palestinian new heads totally responsible..” ARE YOU GOING THE HOLD THE US CONGRESS RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERY KID NAPPING IN AMERICA AS WELL???

“Make it known if these kids aren’t returned, that all connected to this event, will be killed” WHY DON’T YOU LET EVERYONE KNOW WHO DID THIS? AND WHY YOU ARE AT IT, YOU CAN SOLVE ALL THE OTHER MISSING PERSON ISSUES AROUND THE WORLD.

“and three, wanted terrorists in return, will be grabbed from hamas, and imprisoned..” SAY WHAT?

“if Israel shows weakness, then they will be as weak as the USA is today under Obama…they cannot afford this, …never again, must apply here….” AGAIN THIS IS ISRAELS’ ISSUE!!! ISRAEL, A FORIGN COUNTRY THAT IS NOT PART OF THE USA. SPAIN, FRANCE AND GREENLAND ARE NOT PART OF THE USA EITHER. THE USA CAN BE FRIENDS WITH PALASTINE, ISRAEL, IRAN, TURKEY, VENSUELSULA, CHINA, RUSSIA, . . . . . . . L.

Probably just another Zionist false-flag attack, organize a group of hitch-hikers to go through a contentious area and make them go missing. I’m sure it was an easy one to arrange.
