There has been no proof given by israel nor any public claim by Hamas that the yeshiva boys were kidnapped, and I believe until there is proof given, the media should stop referring to the boys as being kidnapped. This continued unfounded belief only incites more violence. They are supposedly missing. And if they have been found or returned home safely on their own, israel can never let the world know after what has happened supposedly on their behalf. The 2 Palestinian teens murdered by IDF prior to the disappearance of the settler teens , one of whom was shot in the back, did not matter to the israeli governmenr...there was no apology, no culpability. And there never is when Palestinian children are kidnapped on the way to school or at night from their beds by the IDF, nor when they are torltured or murdered by soldiers or settlers. By the way, Israeli settler children DO throw rocks at Palestinians. Palestinians are not seen as human by zionists...I have had several online discussions with them regarding Haaretz articles, and their comments are quite disgusting. It is very difficult to understand the inhumanities inflicted upon a race of people who suffered those same inhumanities in recent history. Now that there is other than mainstream media and the world can actually see what is being done by the government and IDF to the Palestinians, empathy for the Palestinians is on the rise....and rightly so.
