The kidnap of leftists

There have been a number of incidents in the modern War on Islamism where western leftists have been captured by the evil men who their philosophy sees as "victims".

Too late, they discover that the jihadists do not just hate neo-cons and Zionists and evil right-wingers - they hate all infidels. They hate all kuffar. In rare cases, the leftist victims come to abandon their old views and gain a better understanding of the jihadist enemy. But more normally, they try to fit the experience into their previous model. They often end up making some kind of apology for or defence of their own tormentors. They often express sympathy for their cause.

When you read what freed hostages like Terry Waite and Brian Keenan say, they often seem not to understand their Islamist torturers. Why is this? Perhaps because if you thought you lost all those years of your life for nothing, just because of the demons inside the heads of ignorant religious maniacs, it would be too hard to deal with. It is easier to think they must have had a point somehow, that their cause must make some sense, even if their methods were wrong. That all that suffering must have been for something.





The "Christian Peacemaker Teams"



Rory Carroll

The Guardian is probably the most pro-jihad newspaper in the English-speaking world. It regularly publishes open support for the Iraq jihad. Despite this, the Guardian's correspondent in Baghdad, Irishman Rory Carroll, was kidnapped by Islamists in Iraq in 2005. He was quickly released, presumably when they realised their mistake. The event made me look at Carroll's journalism in Iraq. I didn't like what I found.

First, need I say that I am delighted he was released. I don't find it amusing and ironic that the Islamists attacked the Guardian. The thugs who kidnapped him are the enemy, and I wish only for their defeat and destruction. Criticising Carroll's journalism (as I am about to) does not imply that I ever wish him to be harmed (or even censored).

The American hikers




Educate the hikers will be a much tougher job.




Giuliana Sgrena

Yvonne Ridley



Yvonne Ridley was held hostage by the Taliban in 2001.
She reacted by becoming a radical Islamist. Here she is openly supporting Hamas in Jan 2009.



Yvonne Ridley openly supporting Hezbollah and Hamas in Sept 2010 (see end).



Yvonne Ridley, Mar 2011, gloats over the plight of Gilad Shalit, held hostage for 5 years by her Islamic terrorist friends, without any contact with family or even the Red Cross.




Joanie de Rijke




"the acts of the Taliban cannot be reduced to rape", says Joanie de Rijke.
That is correct. They also attack schoolgirls with acid and chemical weapons.




The rape of the IHH activists




The IHH convoy promotes a fake quote by Robert de Niro, 9 Feb 2013.
This fake quote has been circulating since 2011.




Other attacks on leftists or Islamists




Canadian leftist Amanda Lindhout worked for Iranian state TV, spreading anti-American propaganda like the above.
She worked for an Islamic terrorist regime that helped to kill thousands of Americans in Iraq.
But none of that disgusting work stopped her being kidnapped by Somali jihadists and repeatedly gang raped by the (typically sex pervert) jihadis for more than a year.




Someone better: Jill Carroll




Someone better: Marc Gonsalves, held hostage for 5 years by the communist terrorists FARC in Colombia, rescued July 2008.
And yet he understands everything. He understands the evil terrorist nature of FARC. He understands the heroism of his rescuers, the brave Colombian security forces.
How refreshing it is to see a freed hostage who talks with moral clarity.
