    These boys were probably taken by a small Hamas cell and whilst they are Hamas they were acting independent from the Hamas top brass so this was not well planned. Most probably plan was grab some hitchhikers and hand them over to the top brass but there was no time for that before the IDF moved in and right now they probably don't know what to do with them. The worry is if they cannot get rid they will eventually decidee its easier to kill them rather than continue guarding and feeding them and risk getting caught by the IDF. All the palestinians better hope and pray they do not do that because otherwise the IDF response will be massive and make Cast Lead look like a minor scirmish. Right now Bibi is doing the smart thing he is not just trying to get the boys back but he has thousands of soldiers arresting known terrorists to try and clean house in Judea & Samaria and weaken Hamas there and right now he has international support for this plan.This is going to also be a blow to any hopes Abbas has of forming a unity government with Hamas. I encourage all Israelis to come out show solidarity with the IDF and demand the safe return of the boys now
