So 3 Israeli Yeshiva students were kidnapped. Yea it’s sad. I hope they are found alive and returned peacefully home. I also hope that if/when they return home, they admit that hitchhiking in country that has residents which hate Israelis, is a dumb idea. Sure, Israelis hitchhike all the time. I’ve never really hear about yeshiva students doing it and I don’t think they were targeted. I think it was just a random occurrence and they found themselves in the wrong place, at wrong time.
I believe an even bigger issue is going on right now. Why do religious Jews only put urgency into their useless prayers for a Jewish victim? How many children have been kidnapped in America? Were there any religious Jews praying for the African girls that were recently kidnapped by terrorists? Probably a few did pray, but you don’t see the masses at the kotel.
Another question I have is if 3 Palestinian kids were kidnapped, would there be prayers at the kotel? Again, probably only from those with good hearts, but most likely there would be no word about it, or there would be rejoicing and lots of giving thanks to Yahweh.
Instead of wasting their time talking to a wall, the religious Jews should start enforcing better security, provide more precautions for their youth, instill earlier curfews for children, or perhaps religious leaders can come together and declare that hitchhiking is no longer kosher.
