Thank G'd that the kidnapping incident near the Rahelim junction ended well. Like many people in Israel and like most parents I cannot stop wondering why two ( Jewish ) teenage girls should try to "hitch a ride" in general, and in the Westbank in particular, but of course that is only my leftist, hysterical, defeatist, give-in-to-those-bloody-Arabs side talking.
PS: To the commentators on some websites who point out the fact that most hitchhiking points ( trampiada's ) are also bus stops, and that the girls were simply waiting for the bus, read this on Ha'Aretz' website: "One of the girls who had been waiting at the hitchhiking station, 14, told Israel Radio that she has been hitchhiking since she was in sixth grade."
