The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

"German" "Hostage" Update


Toldja So alert: Freed German hostage says Iraq captors not criminals.
DUBAI (AFP) - A former German hostage who spent 24 days in the hands of unknown captors in Iraq said her kidnappers were not criminals and had demanded humanitarian aid for Sunni Arab regions.
Funny, since they got Muhammad Ali Hamadi, the Hizballah terrorist serving a life sentence for torturing, murdering, and throwing the body of an American off a plane in Beirut.
Speaking to the enemy's premier propaganda organ Doha-based satellite channel Al-Jazeera, Susanne Osthoff said her captors told her not to be afraid as her kidnapping was "politically motivated."

"Do not be afraid. We do not harm women or children and you are a Muslim," she quoted them as saying. "I was so happy to know that I had not fallen into the hands of criminals," she said.
It's professional courtesy, Frau Osthoff -- y'know, the same reason sharks don't eat lawyers.
Osthoff, a Muslim convert and fluent Arabic speaker, said her captors demanded German humanitarian aid for Iraq's Sunni Arabs and stated clearly that they did not want a ransom. "They said we don't want money... Maybe we want from Germany ... hospitals and schools in the Sunni triangle, and they would like to get money in the form of humanitarian aid," she said.

She described her captors as "poor people" and that she "cannot blame them for kidnapping her, as they cannot enter the Green Zone to kidnap Americans." She said she lived with her captors in a clean place and that they treated her "well."
"And there were teddy bears and butterflies and we sang and danced under a gum-drop rainbow."
But she repeated more than once that she "was sold," without making clear what she meant. . . . She was the first German national to be kidnapped in Iraq, and many questions remain unanswered about her ordeal.
Like, "how much money was in Hamadi's briefcase?"

Please forgive me for contacting you like this. I am just one British twentysomething who has come up with an idea that has attracted support and interest from Richard Branson, three television companies and a book company and I was wondering of you would like to spend £10 or $17 dollars in order to get your blog to the Globe.

The idea is simple: "One British twentysomething, twelve global locations, twelve extreme lifestyles" I will be living twelve very different lifestyles - with a millionaire, with one of the poorest communities in the world, with a family in the hottest weather on earth, a community in the coldest location on earth, in a monastry in Beijing and many many more. I will actually living these lifestyles, recording it for a television programme and it will go out live on a blog and podcast which will be seen by many as I have planned many interviews on television programmes, radio stations and for magazines across the Globe'

In order to cover the cost of this trip and website expenses etc I am seeking support from the blogging community. For the minor cost of £10 I will promote your blog on the day that you chose to sponsor, with a strap lilne of your choice and a link to your site, ensuring that the site that you are developing can be seen by many many people - all for only £10.
