[Ed. – As with his ‘investments’ in green energy, this president picks and chooses which abuses of American citizens he will get wee-weed up over.]
Eleven days after Naftali Frenkel, an American citizen, went missing alongside two other Israeli teenagers, President Barack Obama has yet to publicly address the hostage situation. While the White House Twitter account has expressed its concerns, the president himself has not made a statement.
On Tuesday, it was announced that Naftali’s mother Rachel will address the United Nation Human Rights Council about the kidnappings.
In the San Diego Jewish Week, Moshe Cohen and Benyamin Korn blastedthe president as “unhelpful” in the search:
The State Department’s demand that Israel “exercise restraint” in its search for the Hamas kidnappers makes a mockery of President Obama’s pledge two years ago that he “will always have Israel’s back.”
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki declared on June 20 that the Obama administration is “urging all parties to exercise restraint and avoid steps that could destabilize the situation.”
