Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. (SOUNDBITE) (Hebrew) ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER, BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, SAYING: "Not far from here, a rally in support of the kidnapped teenagers is being held - for Eyal, Gilad and Naftali. I met with the army chief of staff, head of intelligence and the minister of justice and I told them not to spare any effort to bring the boys home." While Israel has named two Hamas Islamists as leading suspects and conducted widespread raids, they've been forced to scale back their search in recent days, due to criticism about collective punishment.
