Rachelle Fraenkel speaks

Times of Israel editor David Horovitz sat down for an interview with the mother of kidnapped Israeli teenager Naftali Fraenkel (video below). Naftali has been kidnapped by Hamas operatives at work in the area that is the responsibility of the Palestinian Authority. David briefly introduces the video and posts the transcript in “A mother’s plea for ‘prayer, positive energy, whatever it takes to find’ kidnapped teens.”

Writing from Jerusalem this morning, David seeks a hearing for Mrs. Fraaenkel’s message. She is in a situation nobody should be in, insistently optimistic, not sure what word or deed might make a difference, and therefore turning to anyone and everyone to do what can be done to help achieve the return of her son and his two friends.
