Israel – Hamas is responsible for the murder of the Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrah and Gil-Ad Shaer, and Hamas will pay, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday evening at the start of an emergency security cabinet meeting called to determine how to respond to the murders.
USDefenseLeague.com shares the following from Our Republic of The United States (One Nation Under God not allah) ally Israel:
Regarding the recent kidnapping of the three missing Israeli youths: Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frankel, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu stated,
“We hold Abu Mazen and the Palestinian Authority responsible for all attacks against Israel that originate from their territory, whether this is Judea and Samaria or the Gaza Strip…The claim that the Palestinian Authority is not responsible because the event occurred in an area under Israeli control is baseless. When terrorist attacks were perpetrated, and you all remember this, in the center of the country, it was the authority that controlled the area from which the attackers originated that was responsible. This is exactly the case here. The attackers came from Palestinian Authority areas and the Authority is responsible.”

International Quartet Representative Tony Blair discusses the situation regarding Hamas’ kidnapping of three Israeli young teenage boys with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued the following statement this evening:
We are in the midst of a wide-ranging operation to locate and return the three missing youths. The three missing students are Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frankel.
I spoke with their parents before the onset of Shabbat. I told them that we are doing everything that the State of Israel can do, and even more, in order to bring their children – who are our children – back home. I must say that these parents showed admirable restraint and strength of spirit. In these difficult hours the heart of the entire nation is with the teens and their families.
The IDF, ISA and all the security services are currently engaged in intensive operations in order to locate the missing youths. I thank them for this activity; they are working ’round the clock. Naturally, I cannot share everything we know, not at this time; however, I can say this: Our young people have been abducted by a terrorist organization. This is absolutely clear; there is no doubt about this. They were abducted by a terrorist organization.
In consultations with Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz and ISA Director Yoram Cohen, I issued the following instructions:
* First, to use all means at our disposal in order to locate the abductees;
* Second, to prevent the possibility of their being moved to the Gaza Strip or any other place;
* Third, to prepare all forces for any scenario; and
* Fourth, to demand that the Palestinian Authority and its leader, Abu Mazen, from whose territory the kidnappers came, to do whatever is necessary to assist in bring the abductees back home. This is the responsibility of the Palestinian Authority. We hold Abu Mazen and the Palestinian Authority responsible for all attacks against Israel that originate from their territory, whether this is Judea and Samaria or the Gaza Strip.
The claim that the Palestinian Authority is not responsible because the event occurred in an area under Israeli control is baseless. When terrorist attacks were perpetrated, and you all remember this, in the center of the country, it was the authority that controlled the area from which the attackers originated that was responsible. This is exactly the case here. The attackers came from Palestinian Authority areas and the Authority is responsible.
To my regret, this event underscores what we have been saying – myself, the Defense Minister and the Government of Israel – for many months: The pact with Hamas has led to very harsh results, results which are the exact opposite of advancing peace between us and the Palestinians.
All of the terrorist organizations – Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the other terrorist organizations – are committed to the destruction of Israel and they draw encouragement from this pact. Their personnel are constantly trying to murder, attack and abduct Israeli citizens simply because they are Israeli citizens – women, youths and children. They shrink at nothing and need no excuse, reason or pretext to do so, and they are indeed trying to do so. Over the decades they have tried to perpetrate abductions and, to our regret, they occasionally succeed. Dozens of such attempts were foiled last year alone.
My friends, we have all seen the terrorist base that was created in the Gaza Strip when Hamas and the terrorist organizations seized control there. Now, Abu Mazen’s pact with Hamas has opened the door to a possible Hamas takeover of the Palestinian Authority areas in Judea and Samaria.
I have said this before and I reiterate it tonight: There is no possibility of talking peace with Israel while, at the same time, establishing a unity government with Hamas, a terrorist organization that aspires to destroy Israel. Those same elements in the international community that said that the Palestinian agreement with Hamas would advance peace now see the true results of this union.
Citizens of Israel, in our region, states are collapsing and coming apart under the murderous assaults of extremist Islam and the terrorist organizations operating under its auspices. Only a strong and united stand by the entire nation is preventing – and continuing to prevent – their victory here. Again and again we have discovered that we can rely only on ourselves – on the IDF, the ISA, the security services and on your strength of spirit – soldiers and citizens of Israel.
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu – FB:A little bit about us and what makes us different than the rest of the news media:USDefenseLeague’s MissionIf this is your first time reading an article here, you might be surprised to find real news intertwined with spiritual passion for the lost. As Christians, and as Pastor and Worship Ministers, we are called to reach out and share the gospel whenever and wherever possible. We are led to present real news with real emotion and real Holy Spirit led prayer. If you are offended, we won’t apologize but we will pray that your heart will soften to the Truth of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Who Alone claimed He was the Son of God, being equal with God The Father by the Power of The Holy Spirit. Yashua Ha Mashiach. Our Boss will one day give us an assessment of how well we obeyed Him. Did we share Him with as many as we could? God is Love. God is Just. God is Holy. God is Angry (at all evil and all sin). God is Merciful. And ultimately God is and will be the Judge for all mankind for all time. God loves you and so do we. We pray that you will have a personal meeting with the Lord of Lords and King of Kings here on earth, be transformed by His saving Grace, filled by His Spirit and Saved by His Sacrificial Blood that was poured out instead of our own. We all, apart from Christ Jesus intercession, death and resurrection deserve an eternal penalty of death which would send us all to Hell. Yet, Jesus took our sins upon Himself and became a curse for us. For it is written, “Cursed is the One who hangs upon a tree.” Jesus overcame that curse, which was death and overcame all the power of Hell for Jesus was, is and always will be the Lamb of God. He alone will wash away all our tears, pain and give us a new name in Heaven. We invite you to walk towards the Kingdom of Heaven and receive Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Savior. We are praying for you daily. Love in Christ Jesus Our Lord.~ M. Katherine Orts and Husband Pastor David A. Orts for USDefenseLeague “Pushing Back Tyranny with Truth” Subscribe for free.
