Following the Jerusalem Post's lead

I was impressed that the Jerusalem Post ceased all activity on their website for five minutes this morning at the exact moment (one year ago today) that Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev were kidnapped by Hezbollah. 

The placeholder on their site looked like this:

**************************

JPost.com

The soldiers cannot be found

Exactly one year ago, in these moments precisely, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev were abducted by Hizbullah and taken into Lebanese territory.

Ever since, no contact has been made with them and no signs of life have been given.

As a show of solidarity, JPost.com is ceasing all activity for the next 5 minutes, since we cannot let apathy take over.

Here is what can be done:

  • Demand that our government and the United Nations make more efforts to receive signs of life
  • Ensure that Gilad Schalit, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev return home safely
  • Make sure that the issue remains at the forefront of the public agenda
  • Never lose hope!

    Don't let apathy and indifference take over!!!

    JPost.com will return in a few moments.

    **************************

    May I suggest that we follow Jpost's lead... but instead of ceasing activity, that we begin any and all possible activities to raise awareness of the kidnapped soldier's plight, and press the international community to assist in facilitating their return to their families.

    The campaign was throughout the Israeli Internet, according to an article in Ha'aretz yesterday (I was offline at 9:05 this morning).

    Walla, Haaretz, Maariv, Yediot and other Israeli websites also participated.

    And may our soldiers come home to their families soon, without endangering Israel.

    Don't let apathy and indifference take over!!!

    AMEN!

    And may we never stop reciting Tehillim and praying for them until they are safely home.
