The Religious Zionists of America (RZA) started a campaign this week to distribute as many pins as possible bearing pictures of the three kidnapped teenagers, Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Fraenkel.

The pins feature the slogan “Bring our boys home” and both the Israeli and US flags. The American flag was included because Fraenkel is a citizen of the United States.

“It is important that every single person who has feelings and decency can make a statement,” said RZA chairman Martin Oliner, who is in Israel for Jewish Agency events. “The pins are a way for them to make a statement. There are too many people who haven’t made a statement on this issue.”

Oliner complained that leading public figures in the US have been silent about the fate of the boys. He said the RZA would try to change that.

In a speech at the Knesset, Oliner recalled a biblical story about Rachel crying over her lost sons. He said the mothers of Yifrah, Shaer, and Fraenkel were crying with her now.

“Jerusalem, the entire nation and Jewish people throughout the world weep with them, anxiously awaiting the speedy return of our precious boys,” he said.

The pins can be requested by writing Msokol@RZA.ORG.
