Rand Paul Op-Ed: Tragedy In IsraelSubmitted by samsticka on Thu, 07/03/2014 - 07:58
National Review: This week, three young boys were buried in Israel. The victims of kidnapping, they had been murdered by terrorists from Hamas.
The boys, Eyal Yifrach, 19; Gilad Shaar, 16; and Naftali Frenkel, a 16-year-old dual U.S.–Israeli citizen, were like any other children — their lives ready to be lived, their dreams ahead of them. They grew up in a nation that was at war but desperately wanted peace.
It is a peace they did not live to see, nor will others their age if action is not taken.
