Will Obama Admin Demand Israel Release More Palestinian ‘Prisoners’ for 3 Kidnapped Yeshiva Students?

Although the Obama Administration did condemn last week’s kidnapping of three Yeshiva students by Hamas in the West Bank, John Kerry isn’t exactly a guy I want in a foxhole with me. After all, this is the man who flip-flopped on demanding that Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state. The fact the Administration isn’t withholding funding from the Fatah-Hamas coalition inspires little confidence.
I cannot help but think that the Obama Administration will eventually pressure Israel to release more so-called Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the three Yeshiva students — dead or alive.
