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.
