In the time of grief, we all are thinking of EyalGilad and Naftali, three wonderful teens, who were abducted and murdered for only one reason, that of being Jews.

They were kind, joyful and open. They were helpful and well brought up by their loving families. They had their whole lives in front of them. They fell victims of the animals who were brought up in an opposite way and who are the product of the society that lives on the hate-vitamin.

It is a black day in Jewish history, one more dat added now to our line of survival from the ashes, despite any of the hate-diets of any of the Jew-haters.

The whole House of Israel, all Jews in the Diaspora, the friends of the Jewish people and Israel all over the world are crying their hearts out with and for the families of these boys, for the grieving Sha'arFrenkel and Yifrah families, for these exemplary Jews on their own Land.

Their boys, their beloved children have become a symbol uniting the nation, both inside and outside of Israel. And for strengthening the country, hopefully.

We all strive to be better Jews, importantly, to live proudly and productively in justice and kindness and many minds of very many people will be enlightened for many years to come by the smiles on the faces of Israel's dear boys, Gilad, Eyal and Naftali.

We share the pain of these brave and devoted families, the Sha'ars, Frenkels and Yifrahs.

We pray for the souls of these three new martyrs of Israel.

In this grieving time, it is worth remembering the historical fact that Jewish tears have a miraculous quality: they strengthen Jewish hearts and make Jewish hands steadfast.

In our grief, we get stronger. And no vitamins will help those hate-fed human-like jackals and those who breed them.

Dear boys, your country and your people everywhere in the world will live on with your smiles in our minds.
