Hamas murders kidnapped Israeli Teenager

The identification card of Eliahu Asheri released by Hamas as proof that they had murdered the teenager.

More Proof that we shouldn’t negotiate with Hamas

(Warner Robins, GA) – On Thursday Israel recovered the body of Eliahu Asheri, an 18-year-old West Bank settler, who was kidnapped by Hamas terrorists on his way to school. The militants had said they would kill Asheri if the raid on Gaza did not stop, but an Israeli military official said he was shot in the head shortly after he was abducted Sunday. Hamas terrorists are still holding Israeli Cpl. Gilad Shalit whose kidnapping resulted in the current Israeli rescue operation in Gaza.

“The murder of kidnap victim Eliahu Asheri by the terrorist group Hamas demonstrates why the United States must stay the course in the War on Terror and never negotiate with terrorists. The only terrorist organization to have killed more Americans than Hamas is al Qaeda. It is the moral responsibility of the United States government and its elected representatives to stand by Israel and the fight against terrorism. Any form of negotiation with Hamas is nothing more than appeasement. These latest events again illustrate once again that the House’s passage of H.R. 4681 (The Palestine Anti-Terrorism Act) was the right thing to do”, said Congressman Mac Collins (Ret. R-GA).
