Palestinian Terrorists Release Video of Kidnapped Journalists
There was a brief moment of relief today when the Palestinian terrorists released a video of Fox News Reporter, Steve Centanni and cameraman Olaff Wigg. Both looked in relatively good condition and had no visible injuries. This was the first time the kidnapped journalists were seen since their abduction almost a week ago.
Fox News has the transcript of the letter from the terrorists (that accompanied the video). Here's a snippet...
So to all you leaders of the infidels and masters of injustice and tyranny, "Embrace Islam and you will be saved, or else, enjoy yourselves until your turn comes to be slaughtered.
You have angered us, and we are not the kind that is subdued when they are angered, but rather the fountains of Islam and the light of faith spring through us. "It is not fitting for an apostle that he should have prisoners of war until he hath thoroughly subdued the land.", "then bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens."
This is the chance we give you, and God only knows if this chance will come to you again. We demand the release of the Muslim prisoners, males and females in the prisons of America, in exchange of our prisoners.
Release our prisoners and we will do the same. This applies to all without exception. And every Muslim is more cherished and more generous than a thousand Bush. But this is a tradeoff of equals. [They could not resist a dig at President Bush in their screed.]
Notice the "turn to Islam or be slaughtered" phrase. These are the types of people that the Liberals want us to sit down and talk to. You know, have some tea while discussing what concessions the US will offer up to them. Even Jessie Jackson is going over to Palestine to help advance the cause of verbalism. What a disgrace.
Please add Steve Centanni, Olaff Wigg and their friends & families to your prayers while praying for our soldiers.
