Peres Tells Parents of Abductees He'll Involve Obama


Outgoing President Shim'on Peres hosted the parents of abducted teenagers Gilad Sha'ar, Eyal Yifrah and Naftali Frenkel in the Presidential Residence Thursday. He told them, "The world is not yet recruited; during my conversations with President Obama and the leaders of the US Congress I will raise the cry of the people of Israel against terrorism, both in private and in public. We must continue to pressure the terrorists, to remove their sources of funding. Just as there were sanctions against Iran we must raise the sanctions against any source of terror. They must be brought to justice."
