“It has been more than two years since Hadar Goldin disappeared down a dark hole. The young Israeli lieutenant was last seen being dragged into a Hamas tunnel during the 2014 Gaza war. Bits of his equipment were recovered, stained with blood and tissue — enough evidence for forensic pathologists and army rabbis to declare him killed in action. But Goldin’s body is still being held by Hamas, the Islamist militant movement that controls the Gaza Strip. His mother, Leah Goldin, said, “We have no way to come to an end of our mourning until we bring him home” It is a terrible thing to have nothing to bury, and in this the Goldin family is not alone.” (Washington Post, November 26 2016)
