Operation Protective Edge: Hadar ben Chedva Leah hy"d


This post has information related to Hadar Goldin obm hy"d updated periodically (each bullet has been added at different times).  The bullet listed on top is the most recent added.

August 1, 2014 (written before IDF reports that he was killed on the field)
From Kfar Saba. 

This kidnapping coincided with yet another cease fire.  See my comments and suggested response after the 3 boys hy"d  were kidnapped.  I still believe this is the proper approach. We can not delay even for a minute since the initial moments and hours are crucial! ! Robin Ticker

OPERATION ‘PROTECTIVE EDGE’ DAY 25: Israeli Soldier Hadar Goldin, 23, Kidnapped by Hamas in Ceasefire Breach, IDF Launches Manhunt (LIVE UPDATES)

Buddy Macy comments:
Your Facebook suggestion certainly has merit. But, do you think that Hamas really cares about jailed terrorists? You see what it does to its civilians. Also, please leave the pigs out of this. Why should they suffer, too, as a result of Hamas?

Yes, let's pray for the quick release of an unharmed Hadar. Hashem, we need a miracle from you now! Buddy

My Response to Buddy:
Buddy, amv"sh

I hear your point about the pigs.....Of course killing a poor pig for a terrorist makes no sense.  If there was a dead pig then threatening to kill known terrorists and burying them with the pig's carcass as a deterrent makes sense.  I have read that for them being buried with a pig means that they won't get rewarded in the Afterworld with  70 virgins. If that is true, then there is no point in doing jihad if they can't get a reward in the afterlife. 

 I think that they need to see that there is no tangible benefit from acts of terror in this world as well.

Till now  
1. they got a salary, (the harsher the sentence, the greater the act of terror,  the better the pay.) Families of terrorists are rewarded monetarily as well if they succeeded and this in turn would encourage their family members to acts of Jihad
2.  they got room and board in Israeli jail (none of the released terrorist looked like they were malnourished 
3. they got education in jail,  either an actual degree and/or an education how to be a better more sophisticated terrorist and
4. they were considered heroes and their families were considered heroes

Hamas as an organization doesn't care about it's people but not getting rewarded for terror and in fact getting one's true reward of getting pay back for terror is a deterrent.....

Subject: Urgent Prayers Needed

90 minutes into a "humanitarian cease fire" this morning, Hamas kidnapped an Israeli soldier. His name is Hadar, son of Chedva Leah. The situation is desperate. The family requests that people please pray for him now!!! And requests that this message is shared. Please help!
