Two Americans and a Briton have been taken hostage
in Iraq. We will soon see jihadi video of the killing of these unfortunate souls. Such are the ways of the Religion of Peacetm
Kidnappings and spectacular bombings have become the signature weapons of insurgents waging a 17-month campaign against U.S. and Iraqi forces, a campaign that has persisted since the interim government of Prime Minister Ayad Allawi took power in June
One more time for an oldie, but a goodie:
Never should a believer kill a believer; but (If it so happens) by mistake, (Compensation is due): If one (so) kills a believer, it is ordained that he should free a believing slave, and pay compensation to the deceased's family, unless they remit it freely. If the deceased belonged to a people at war with you, and he was a believer, the freeing of a believing slave (Is enough). If he belonged to a people with whom ye have treaty of Mutual alliance, compensation should be paid to his family, and a believing slave be freed. For those who find this beyond their means, (is prescribed) a fast for two months running: by way of repentance to Allah: for Allah hath all knowledge and all wisdom.[Qur'an 4:92]
Gotta say it again...Read your Qur'an assholes!
Just to show how stupid these "militants" are, they are demanding the release of all women
from two jails in Iraq, the problem is that there are no women
in those jails.
The group led by key Jordanian terror suspect Abu Musab al-Zarqawi said it would kill the men in 48 hours unless the United States and Britain release Iraqi women detained at Abu Ghraib and Umm Qasr prisons.
Lieutenant Colonel Barry Johnson, a U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad, said coalition forces do not hold any women at Abu Ghraib or at Camp Bucca, a U.S. detention facility near Umm Qasr.

Clearly, the terrorists want to increase the bloodshed to postpone or derail elections in those countries, and also to make it more difficult for Bush. And saying the latter, by the way, is absolutely NOT on my part suggesting that a vote against Bush is a vote for the terrorists.
Joe doesn't want to suggest that a vote for Sen. Kerry (D - France) is a vote for terror, but I do. Further, I will say it straight out. A vote for Kerry is a vote to allow these morons to continue killing us. There, I've said it... I guess I can no longer be a "source" for "fake, but true" documents because of my "shadowy connections" to the Bush campaign.
Sen. Kerry will take us back to September 10th
thinking, which is just fine with Osama and al Zarqawi.
