Rachel Frenkel: Good Reasons to Believe the Boys Are Alive


gilad-shaer-naftali-frenkelRachel Frenkel, mother of Naftali, one of the three Israeli teens kidnapped by Hamas terrorists, said that she was deeply moved by the army’s efforts to find her son, along with Eyal Yifrah and Gilad Sha’ar, the other two kidnap victims.

Speaking on IDF Radio Sunday, Frenkel said that she was encouraged by the ongoing activity to find the boys. Despite the fact that over two weeks have passed with no indication of their fate or whereabouts, Frenkel said that she did not believe that “the search has reached a brick wall. As long as there is progress, we are hopeful.”

“I try not to think too deeply, though, because those kinds of thoughts can deplete your energy. But we have good reason to be optimistic,” Frenkel said. “The signs point to their still being alive, and G-d willing with all the efforts and prayers I hope we will get them back alive.” Read more at Arutz 7.

    The IDF should hit them so hard that they just accept that this negative behavior will leave them so desperate and despondent that they’ll never attempt it again!
