    I would like to bring to the attention of the Frum community here in the United States an on-going outrage that’s being committed by the Israeli government.

    The Israeli Shabak (general security services) arrested for interrogation three Frum Yeshiva students all under the age of seventeen years old.

    They are entering their fourth day behind bars with zero face time with their attorneys or family members, and their families don’t even know where they are being held.

    Based on similar arrests in the past I worry that these children are being tortured, since unfortunately there’s a lot of documentation of that happening in previous arrests of a similar nature.

    In fact, just yesterday a different case was thrown out because of the illegal methods the Israeli police used to pressure a different underage Jewish arrestee. In that case they placed undercover officers in his cell with one of the policemen playing the role of a prisoner serving a murder sentence. Officers even planted fake drugs under his mattress.

    Other torture tactics documented in similar cases (with no rebuttal from the Israeli government) include: sleep deprivation, tying hands and feet for dozens of hours at a time, extreme temperature changes, and denying them basic religious rights. Some of the other methods are too shocking to write in Frum publications.

    As the biggest defenders of Eretz Yisroel we, the Orthodox Jewish community, are protesting strongly this despicable behavior. These three underage suspects must be given their basic human and religious rights immediately. We won’t remain silent until that happens.

    We must ask ourselves, what would we do if it was our own children who were being tortured by a supposedly democratic country?

    Please say Tehillim for Moshe Ben Pazit (age 15) Tzvi Niriya ben Ayala (Age 15) and Avraham Ben Aliza (age 16).

    To take further action please call the Israeli consulate closest to your home to voice your protest at this horrific travesty. If you have social media you can use that as well.
