Philippines demand release of UN peacekeepers in Syria

In the Mohammedan system, every kafir is a potential hostage. The West should have learned this by now, but it seems that there is massive cognitive dissonance when dealing with savages.

The Philippines has demanded the immediate release of 21 of its nationals working as UN observers who have been kidnapped by rebels in Syria.

“The command of the Martyrs of Yarmouk announced that it is holding forces of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force until the withdrawal of forces of the regime of (President) Bashar Assad from the outskirts of the village of Jamla,” said the man, wearing civilian clothes.

The group is being held by armed fighters near the Golan Heights.

They had been monitoring the ceasefire line between Syria and Israel, which captured the Heights in 1967.

The Philippine foreign affairs ministry said the observers were being treated well and that negotiations were under way to secure their release.  (BBC)
