Iran’s president says he intends to release, ‘pardon’ U.S. hikers
As usual: nothing to do with Islam because hostage taking is totally un-Islamic.Right?
I quote the notoriousÂ Abu Hamza:
If a kafir person (non-believer) goes in a Muslim country, he is like a cow. Anybody can take him. That is the Islamic law. …If a kafir is walking by and you catch him, he’s booty. You can sell him in the market. Most of them are spies. And even if they don’t do anything, if Muslims cannot take them and sell them in the market, you just kill them. It’s OK….I say the reality that’s in the Muslim books anyway. Whether I say it or not, it’s in the books.
After two years the criminal dregs who turned Iran into a sharia nightmare must have realized that America doesn’t take that much interest in the kidz from Berkely who got napped on a hiking trip. Â (WaPo)
American hikers Shane Bauer, left, Josh Fattal and Sarah Shourd wait to see their mothers at the Esteghlal hotel in Tehran. There are some really weird pic’s here…
TheyÂ areÂ hostages. And you can see the fear in their eyes; there is likely far more to come out about their treatment when they are out of custody. Â As was the case with Sara Shourd, they may well have sit for some photo ops and sing the praises of the Iranian regime all the way to the end of Iranian airspace.

The German government has been presented with a new challenge in Yemen. Kidnappers holding a German family are allegedly demanding $2 million in ransom and the release of several suspected Islamist terrorists being held by the Yemeni government. The demands are being met with skepticism.Â more…

The Pain of Listening
For years, US interrogators at Guantanamo used painfully loud music on prisoners at Camp Delta. Rock musicians like Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and civil rights organization are demanding an investigation into the practice.Â By Tobias RappÂ more…
More than half of the approx. 220,000 Turkish immigrants – 2.65% of the 8.3 million people in Austria – want Islamic law introduced into the Austrian legal system.Â Asked whether some parts of Islamic law (e.g. marriage, family and inheritance laws) should be incorporated into Austrian law, 50% agreed, 16% said it depended on which elements were incorporated and 22% were against it.Â Responses varied by education level and German language skills, but religion was the most decisive factor.Â Close to 62% of religious-political Muslims agreed Sharia should be incorporated, compared to 41% of secular Muslims.Â In both groups, an additional 16% said it depends on what elements were to be incorporated.
72% says that following religious commandments is more important than democratic ones.Â For 57% of the Turks, the laws and regulations of Islam are more important than that of Austria.Â And almost half of the Turkish immigrants say that crime in Austria is caused by democracy… Islam in Europe>>
Tim Blair: Â RESPECTFULLY RAPED
What’s next Joanie? Taliban porn flicks?
Like her fellow journalistsÂ Yvonne RidleyÂ andÂ Beverly Giesbrecht, Dutch leftistÂ Joanie de RijkeÂ was kidnapped by Islamic extremists.
Ridley converted to Islam (and sometimes writes to us on this blog telling us what a great ‘journalist she is…)
Giesbrecht (claims she) faces beheading. But it looks more and more like she is helping the Taliban Â to make a fast buck…
And as for de Rijke:Â
She was held captive,Â raped repeatedly, and released after six days for a ransom of 100,000 euros.Â
But, hey, no hard feelings:Â
After her ordeal, she acknowledged that her captors “did horrible things to me,” but added in several media interviewsÂ “They also respected me,”Â and emphasizedÂ “They are not monsters.”Â
ReadÂ on. As you do, imagine de Rijke’s comments â€“ and global reaction â€“ if the events she describes had happened inside, say, Abu Ghraib.
The Philippine jihadists fund themselves throughÂ the jizya (Koran 9:29),Â ransoms(Koran 47:5), andÂ charity (Koran 9:60)–all traditional sources of Islamic revenue that may be channeled back into jihad, and yet we’re told that these activities have no basis in Islam!
* Quick, call Sherifa Zuhur! Perhaps we can get her to explain to these misunderstanders of Islam that hostage-taking for ransom is totally un-Islamic!
U.S. War College member insists Islam does not ”promote kidnappings, beheadings and other unlicensed hostile actions”
MANILA, Philippines – A ransom of between $5 million and $10 million has been demanded for the release of three workers of the International Committee of the Red Cross, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) claimed Sunday.
