“She said Logan immediately offered to hand over all their money and jewelry but the men seemed to have other intentions.”
ROFLMAO!!!! Ya think?!?!?! Hey you morons, it’s called, “jihad”!!!! Want to know what it feels like to be an infidel on the receiving end a weapon in the hand of a Muzzie? Want to know what real misogyny feels like? Well, you got it, sistah!
Two probably liberal, naive, American women go walking alone in the desert in a country where Arabs are known to inhabit. Do they ever question if it is safe to go? Do they consult any Israelis for a second opinion for doing such a suicidal thing? I bet they’d go swimming in a lake full of alligators if they were asked to do so. Think those alligators might have other intentions?
I forgot to mention. They were also on the receiving end of full out anti-Semitism.
I know what you are driving at, but (1) we don't have any indication that there were previous incidents of this type in the area, (2) the area was mountainous, not necessarily desert, and (3) one of the women was a Brit having lived in Israel for several years. Probably liberal? Maybe, maybe not. No hint of political leanings in the article.
You are correct to say, though, that the motive was almost surely jihad and hatred of Israelis and Westerners. westerners.
