Senator Cory Booker on Murder of Eyal, Gilad and Naftali

bookerI am deeply pained by the news that the bodies of the three Israeli teens kidnapped on June 12th have been found. In recent months, the world has witnessed in horror the abduction of school girls in Nigeria and kidnapping of innocent teenagers in the West Bank. The use of children as a weapon of terror is simply intolerable and the perpetrators of this unconscionable crime must be brought to justice.

The U.S. and Israel maintain an unshakable bond and ever-strong partnership, and today I join my brothers and sisters in Israel in grieving for these three young, innocent children. My prayers and thoughts are with the families of the victims.

  1. His statement was more powerful than that of the President. The use of children for acts of terror is intolerable. It’s nice to know that he sees the crime for what it truly is…a terrorist act. Note that the President, in his love for Arabs refused to use that word in his statement.
