  1. i just opened up the site this morning at 7:30 am israel time to read about the closing remarks in Japan for these duped boys..may hashem redeem them hastily… But i must comment that it is also sad that I noticed there are 18 comments on the Chofetz Chaim suit issue and none on this story ..
    May hashem redeeem them Hastily!!!

  2. elirott, what exactly do you want people to comment on ? The article states that they need Rachmei Shomayim so we should all daven and say tehilim. By leaving comments, will not help them. By davening will help.

  3. “Duped” boys? Please. A stranger comes up to you and offers you a lot of money to take a suitcase and sneak it through customs? What, did they think there was nothing shady about it? They were stupid, and they got caught. Everyone is screaming “Anti-semitism!” when in reality, the Japanese are harsh with all drug smugglers, Jewish or not. These boys made a huge chillul Hashem.

  4. ‘Orthowatch’? Hmmm… interesting name. You are severely misinformed! Those boys knew the man who asked them for ‘a favor’. How can you even begin to think of it as a chillul Hashem. Shame on you!
