Forced Conversion Frees Hostages?
By Mark Neckameyer


August 28, 2006

I have an idea! The Palestinian terrorists forced FOX journalist Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, his Cameraman to publicly convert to Islam as a condition of being released after a couple of weeks of beheading threats, ransom demands, the usual Muslim extremist way of treating non- combatants. Does this mean Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig will have to pray five times a day, be allowed four wives who cannot drive or go to school and be able to live now free of threats of beheading?

Maybe we can resolve all of this if we use our great military powers to kidnap members of Hamaas and Al Qeda en mass and force them to swear allegiance to the Friends religion, become pacifist Quakers? I am being facetious of course. The men who kidnapped the journalists were most likely doing so for material gain and were probably paid a huge ransom by FOX News. This encourages future mercenary kidnappings but what else could be done? The Palestinian "government" must know who the kidnappers are but they won't take action against them as the terrorists are stronger than the government and in some areas like southern Lebanon the terrorists ARE the government!

What we really need to do is have our CIA and other Special Ops people hunt these perpetrators down and "terminate", kill them them. I wouldn't even force them to convert first. Can't think of a religion that would want them anyway.
