Chazal (Sota 11) reveal the reason for Iyov’s severe punishment. “Iyov sh’shoshak, nidon b’yisurim”- Iyov who remained silent, was punished with suffering

I went to the petition site to sign but after I saw it only mentions ONE of the boys (the one who is a US citizen), I did not sign. I’m sure that boy would not want to be released while his friends are still captive.

all 3 boys will be helped! The website is only for US citizens, but when obama sees the support he will take a stand just like the Canadians have.
Please go back and sign.

..and Prime MInister Stephen Harper. Yet again, they show the world a clear moral value and strong leadership where there is little else around.

Also to be commended is the President of the Czech republic saying it like it is…

Nevertheless, as the Rebbe always said, a small flame can push away much darkness. We are reminded once again that we can only turn to HKB”H and not rely on anyone else…

Obama HATES Israel & by extention, the Jews, with a passion. Despite the PC commentators out there, it is clear that at the very least he has strong pro-Muslim sentiments. Ergo, he will support their efforts to get rid of Jews & Christians. So….They took 3 Jewish kids (one is a US citicen but he doesn’t care about that.) Well, for Obama, it’s a non issue. He is evil incarnate & yes, his heart is as black as Hitler’s ym’s. He is just too afraid to act. So far.

3 Jewish boys, even if one is an American, aren’t worth anything. If he didn’t care about his own Ambassador to Libya, why would you think he cares about a Jew?

It is a shame that the strongest world leader does not display any compassion or concern that three innocent boys were kidnaped. These are young children captured by cowards themselves to exploit ther own evil agenda and there is nothing said from the leader of the free world on this cruel act. It’s a shame that he does not display any courage or leadership against this immoral act . Praise to Canada who have the courage to stand up against this evil that has seen as just being accepted by President Obama. We should all pray for the safe return… Read more »

You are absolutely correct. I refused to sign as well. A petition that throws 65 percent of the abductees under the bus is a disgrace. Hopefully the COL editor will replace the link with this one that includes all 3 of them;

What does anyone expect. He’s (Obama) is more concerned in getting in bed with Iran! He’s using Iraq as a reason to get closer. We need to admit this administration doesn’t like Jews. That’s all. His name is BARAK OBAMA – think about it. Stop voting for these left wing Jewish hating liberals, enough is enough!

It will be as Hashem wants it to be.. one thing is for sure Hashem wants our thillim and our good deeds!
May all our davening prevail and bring our boys home NOW!!!

Petition is not a bad thing

The petition to the white house only mentions the American boy because that is the only person over whom the American government has jurisdiction. Unfortunately it’s not realistic to assume that America will even glance at a petition to help Jewish foreign citizens in a foreign country. I’m sure whoever initiated the petition was trying to achieve something that may have some slight chance of being acknowledged by present day government.

May the boys be returned safely
Perhaps someone should also start a petition to Hashem demanding the geulah now. I am sure it has been done in the past but Moshiach is still not here.. The meraglim did not want a portion in Eretz Yisroel; now is a time to demand that the boys as well as all of us return to the true borders of Eretz Yisroel with Moshiach NOW!

You really think Obama has such deep animosity against Jews? I actually think he is pretty much devoid of any feelings- that is, for anyone except himself, his ridiculously overpampered family and his tight group of like-minded leftist cronies (at least the ones who don’t get in his way.) He certainly doesn’t seem to give a real hoot about the Americans who were killed in Benghazi, or other parts of the world…

This article is very distorted and inaccurate. Kerry, the U.S. Secretary of State, put out a very strong statement. This is no different that the statement put out by Canada’s Foreign Minister (a position similar to Secretary of State in the U.S.). In short, the response by both countries was the same.

Lets just hope and pray that they come back safely

Even though it’s true that Obama is a coward and he should never have become president, at the end of the day Hashem is the one who can change it. Not Obama or anyone else, as a matter of a fact. There is obviously a reason why He chose this to happen, and all we could do is daven.

Yes, and if this is the way he has been conducting business from day one then that might hold water. However, our president has been putting the presidential nose into many foreign matters. Also, are you aware that the pres made a statement when he was first elected condemning SM Rubashkin- such opinion voicing by a president in such cases are unheard of. It seems the good pres picks and chooses his battles.

He condemned the incident in Boston, and then made a beer summit. He condemned a white guy in Fl shooting a black kid. The problem here is that the boys are not black and they were not kidnapped by whites. For the party who sees no color, things are pretty black and white to me. Btw, Kerry said the boys are missing. Like when someone gets lost on a hike or something. Best comment here: the one about he didn’t care about our own ppl in Benghazi, why care about Israel. He also won’t comment unless Israel retaliates by building.… Read more »

Kerry is so anti semitic. His statements were not even supportive. He didnt want to directly sat that Hamas is behind tge kidnapping when it is obvious. He said there is an indication that Hamas is behind the kidnapping. Kerry is anti Israel not pro Israel. He shouldnt be the one either commenting on the kidnappings, Obama should be the one to comment. Obamabhasnt commented yet at all. Michelle Obama hasnt either. Michelle Obama only commentes on the Nigerian kidnappings. What about Israel?? Clearly the Obamas are anti Israel!!!

You can’t have it both ways. Israel never commented when the Nigerians girls were kidnapped. So…..

You know, I must admit this is troubling. If a non-Jew were in such a situation, how many of us would care? If we don’t give a hoot if it were a goy, why should we expect a goy to care about us?
If, however, we are G-d’s chosen people, then based on that, they may have an obligation, much the same as the Secret Service has for big time political leaders.
