Prove it? Why?

March 31st, 2006

Christian Peacemaker Team member and former hostage Harmeet Sooden says he believes that his rescue was ” highly likely” the result of a ransom being paid. Ransom? I don’t remember any demands for a ransom.

His primary concern is not who would have put up the money (and certainly not about paying them back). He was concerned that the money would not be spent on people who need food but instead on killing people. Again I ask, who would have paid this? The CPT? Most organizations such as that are usually underfunded. Canada? New Zealand? Government policy of both countries is never to pay ransom. It would set them up for countless ransom situations. So why would he think this?

“Instinct.” Not evidence, because he has none. Just his “instinct.”

Hmm. My “instinct” tell me that going into Iraq under a “Christian” banner just might like waving a red flag in front of a bull. But then I’m just an unfeeling, uncaring, right-wing troglodyte.

Of course there’s also no mention of the soldiers who allegedly got them out. Nope. Never happened. Uh-uh. No way. I’m not listening-lalalalalalalalala…..

    I’m a little annoyed by special interest groups who label themselves “Christian”. To me, it’s a self-serving ploy to garner sympathy and support. There are many things those so-called ‘Christians’ are doing that I never saw the Bible condoning.
