Teenaged girls released

Voice of Judea reports that the three teen girls aged 13-16 have been released from jail. That's good to know.

Aside from that, there's something I thought of regarding the subject, that I first thought of while travelling on a bus between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, that I first posted on the Orange Humanist blog, and that I'll post here too and see if I can expand upon:
I think there's an interesting point that could made here in regards to the court's "threat" to try and send the kids to a kibbutz based custodian:

Whereever you go in Israel, there are sensible kibbutz residents today who'd find the idea embarrassing, no matter their positions, and if they found out that say, the custodians were treating the kids like trash, they'd do whatever they could to stop them. That's probably also one of the reasons why the whole idea of dormitories for the children of the residents wore off by the 1960s.

I don't think there's that many kibbutz managements who'd want to allow something like that on their premises, because these days, it doesn't take long for these things to be found out, and if they allowed it, they'd be risking a boycott by external members of the public, and it could end up harming even their own businesses, such as factories and stores. I was once on a tour trip with a social group that went to eat lunch at a kibbutz dining hall(it was simply delicious what we ate there), and many kibbutzes need to make money not just from local residents, but from external visitors as well, including tourists and passers-by, and if they were to let something like a forced custody matter take place on their property, it could end up embarrassing their reputation, even with the local residents.

I thought about this just yesterday while travelling on a bus, and I realized that the idea really does have holes in it, big or small. So when it comes to the country's kibbutzes, there may not be all that much need for concern. But when it comes to the court, there most certainly is.
Not only that, most of today's kibbutz residents don't want to be seen as shoe polishers or tools, and the whole idea of being custodians to children over politicized matters would come as insulting to many. So if anything, the idea that the court could actually send them to reside on a kibbutz for a time is exaggerated at best.

So all the court did was to insult even the kibbutz movement in Israel by implying that they'd actually be willing to work as their servants. That's not going to win the courts much respect now from the Kibbutzim.
