The IDF confirmed early Thursday a report the Popular Resistance Committees issued from Gaza that it had executed Eliyahu Asheri, 18, of Itamar, who was
kidnapped earlier this week in the West Bank. Asheri’s family has been notified.
His funeral was scheduled to take place at 2:30 p.m. in Jerusalem, with the funeral procession to pass from Beit Sanhedria to the Mount of Olives in the
OC Central Command Maj.-Gen. Yair Naveh revealed Thursday morning that the youth had been shot in the head immediately after the kidnapping on Sunday.
Yet Condelisa Rice keeps telling Israel to just settle down.
I guarantee you if it were an American kidnapped like that, especially on American soil, the Bush Administration wouldn’t be telling anyone to settle down.
Then again, maybe they would.
Bush managed to come up with words of condolence for the Russians butchered by the Iraqi terrorists, but not the Americans.
Not so much as a word.
May Eliyahu’s family be comforted, along with the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
