Israel Offers to Help Find Kidnapped Nigerian Girls


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday offered to help Nigeria search for hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped by extremist Islamist group Boko Haram, his office said.

A statement said that Netanyahu, currently on an official visit to Japan, made the proposal in a telephone call to Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan.

"Israel expresses its deep shock at the crime against the girls," it quoted the premier as saying.

"We are prepared to help in locating the girls and to fight the cruel terror which has struck you."

Boko Haram, whose name is loosely translated as "Western education is forbidden" kidnapped the girls from their dormitory on April 14, and has threatened to sell them.

The abduction caused worldwide outrage and offers of help, including from U.S. President Barack Obama.

Shame on any muslim that did hear about this news and did not condem, even by heart, such acts. A clear action should be taken by any country that can help.I call on KSA and others to do at least what Iseael is planning to do for helpping!

Ignorant comments! Regardless of your personal biased opinion of Israel, you should focus on the fact that there is a need in the world and they are willing to provide support. I praise Israel and any other country willing to assist in this cause.
