As the Jewish world continues to reel from the abduction of three innocent souls, three teenagers ripped from their families. Our Arab enemies are teaching their children to mock our sorrow, to revel in the suffering of others. Spreading across social media like the rancid plague that it is, are photos of Palestinian children displaying a three fingered gesture. The three fingers represent our three boys, Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frenkel and Eyal Yifrach.
A society that revels in criminal acts, that celebrates and facilitates the abduction of three guiltless teens, that raises its children in hate is not one capable of making peace, is not one capable of being trusted.
We hope for the day when peace and tolerance rather than hatred are the lessons taught in Palestinian schools and homes. We pray for the safe and speedy return of Eyal, Gilad and Naftali.
