Jun 19 2014 / 12:37 am

Jewish Telegraphic Agency – A Facebook page that calls on Israel to execute a Palestinian murderer every hour until three kidnapped Israeli teens are returned has garnered more than 19,000 likes.

[Ed. Note: 5,271 Palestinians are currently being held by Israel, 196 of them minors. In the past 14 years, Israeli forces have killed 1,523 Palestinian children, and Palestinians have killed 129 Israeli children.]

There is no indication of who established the page, which was created on June 13, one day after the abduction of the three teens in the West Bank. But according to statistics provided by Facebook under People Talking About This, the most popular age group for those who liked the page is 18 to 24 and the most popular location is Jerusalem.

The Facebook page Bring Back Our Boys, also established on June 13, has more than 93,000 likes.

“This page is part of our campaign to raise awareness about the kidnapping of three innocent young Israeli boys, on their way home from school, by the Hamas terrorist organization,” according to the description in the About section. People from around the world have posted photos of themselves on the page holding signs reading #BringBackOurBoys.

On Tuesday, the White House issued its first statement about the kidnapping, posting it on Twitter.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the 3 teens who were kidnapped last week,” the tweet reads. “May they be reunited with their families soon.”
