a different side of Israel

Light a candle for the missing soldiers

Since the abduction of IDF soldiers Gilad Shalit, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev more than five months ago, the citizens of Israel and pro-Israel communities around the world have been praying for their wellbeing. This Hanukkah – the holiday of lights – Ynetnews, in coordination with the Jewish Agency and the World Zionist Organization, invite you to light a Hanukkah candle in their honor.
As individuals our light is weak, but together we will shine brightly and light a huge flame to express our common concern and hope that Gilad, Ehud and Eldad return safely home.


  1. Thank you for the opportunity to join with unified hearts on their behalf. My prayers are with them, their families and their country, Israel!
    The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. Numbers 6:24-26

  2. My candle burns with yours.

  3. The Prime Minister of Israel, together with his “illustrious”
    Defense Minister, decided to declare war of both the Palestinians and Hezbollah, following the capture of the three soldiers. The end result
    was more than 130 Isrealis killed, including 58 civilianns, millions of dollars in property damage and lost forests and agricultural products, and the entire northern part of Israel living on bomb shelters or fleeing to the south during this 34 day castrophie.

    As for Lebanon, despite more than 2,000 dead and BILLIONS od dollars in property damage, not to mention an environmental nightmare from spilled oil onto Lebanon’s beaches, Hezbollah is now even stronger than before, and the officially declared winner of this war,
    by most of the world.

    The three prisoners are still captured (if still alive, that his).

    We need to do lot more than just light candles. Olmert and Petetz,
    as well as IDF central command head Dan Halutz, all need to be replaced. But first of all, they need to do more to get these three guys released, instead of making comments that “it’s better to let them (the prisons) continue to sit in their confinement rather than
    loose any more IDF soldiers or civilians.

    That’s not the way to fight a war. George Patton would ( from WWII days) not have done it this way. But I guess we don’t have thse kind of generals around anymore. This goes for the American Armed Forces as well!
