Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) made the following statement on the kidnapping of three Israeli students in the West Bank:

“My thoughts and prayers are with Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Sha’er, Naftali Frenkel, and their families at this most difficult time.  Those individuals who kidnapped these innocent teens should be held accountable for their cowardly actions.  Acts of terror like this have no place in our society. I stand in support of Israel as they work to bring these brave young people home safely.”
