IDF must not scale back operations against jihadists

The mother kidnapee Gilad Sha'ar gave a speech to the Knesset where she asked the military to use all resources to locate her son and the other two boys:
Bat-Galim Sha'ar addressed the Israeli Knesset Wednesday, in an emotional speech to urge the Israeli government to keep all resources trained on finding her son Gilad (16), Naftali Frenkel (16), and Eyal Yifrah (19) despite a recent decision to scale back the wide-ranging IDF operation. (See full text at the end of this article.) [...]

On Tuesday, the Security Cabinet decided to scale down the IDF operations against Hamas and focus on locating the teens, concentrating on arrests that would aid in gathering intel about the three.

The decision, which was initially denied by Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, allegedly was to fend off international criticism over the IDF crackdown on Hamas over the abduction, as well as concerns about the upcoming Muslim holiday of Ramadan.

The announcement surfaced hours after the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) publicly assailed Israel for over 90 minutes during a session in Geneva, just before Rachel Frenkel - Naftali's mother - was about to speak.
Whether or not this report is accurate, the IDF must not weaken the search for the missing students. They must be found, and the UN cannot be allowed to get in the way.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
