I don't believe they consider Zarqawi, bin Laden, the PLO, Hamas, Hezbullah, et al to be terrorists.

Someone should ask them.

Hint, hint...

A bunch of idiots is what they are.

I hate to say this ... but maybe if their heads are loped off they'll finally get it - terrorists don't want peace - they want to KILL you.

"who will probably proceed to slice their heads off."

I'm going to go with Limbaugh on this. It will probably turn out this is a fake kidnapping set up by these hippie idiots in order to get attention and sympathy.

If it turns out this is a real kidnapping and the idiot hippies get their heads out off, then all I can say is "hey, more oxygen for me".

While there is likely to be human tragedy, I suspect that the kidnapping may give the left pause to contemplate their belief that the "terrorists" are really polite and well motivated people who are morally opposed to the Coalition invasion of Iraq.

Hopefully, the left will finally realize that terrorists have no morals and don't place any value on the life of non-Muslims or even Muslims who are of the wrong political beliefs.

From another article a description of this group......
In a statement, Christian Peacemaker Teams said it strongly opposed the U.S. invasion of Iraq and blamed the kidnapping on coalition forces.

``We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. government due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people,'' the group said.

Christian Peacemaker Teams does not consider itself a fundamentalist organization, a spokeswoman said.

``We are very strict about this: We do not do any evangelism, we are not missionaries,'' Jessica Phillips told The Associated Press in Chicago. ``Our interest is to bring an end to the violence and destruction of civilian life in Iraq.''

The group's first activists went to Iraq in 2002, six months before the U.S.-led invasion, Phillips said, adding that a main mission since the invasion has been documenting alleged human rights abuses by U.S. forces.

Subject: IRAQ : Christian PeaceMaker Teams


Christian PeaceMaker Teams

IRAQ: Dates to be announced. Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) is
recruiting peacemakers to travel to post-war Iraq. Delegates will
assess war damage, listen to the Iraqi people, and gain an
understanding of the nature of the U.S. occupation of Iraq. They will stay in Baghdad and may travel to Basra, Falluja or other cities. They will visit hospitals, schools, churches, mosques and markets, and may have the opportunity to stay in the homes of Iraqi families. They will meet with representatives of
governmental and non-governmental agencies, including the U.S.
military. A nonviolent public witness will be planned as appropriate.

Participants accept the risks to personal safety and uncertainties of
travel inherent in being in a conflict zone. Cost is $2500 US.

CPT is a faith-based group that seeks participants for all delegations who are interested in human rights work, committed to nonviolence, and willing to participate in team worship and reflection. The delegation experience culminates in a nonviolent public witness that challenges structural violence. Delegates should have plans to share about the trip upon return to their home communities and congregations.

Cost covers round-trip airfare from a designated U.S. or Canadian
city, all on-ground travel, two meals a day, simple accommodations, and all honorariums and delegation fees. For more information or to apply, contact
CPT at the address below, or see CPT's website at: http://www.cpt.org.

"The Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) program was founded in Chicago in 1986 as an initiative of the Mennonite Central Committee Peace Section, the Church of the Brethren Office of Peace and Justice."

I listened to a presentation about Mennonite/Amish history by an Amish woman in northern Ohio.
When she was done, what struck me was that they'd been run out of every European country they fled to from the last European country they'd lived in.
Maybe their failed model of, "just leave us alone while we buy up all your property, and don't pay taxes on much of it.... and by the way, we're not going to help you defend your stupid country", irritated some of their neighbors.

So they took me into a small spare room with a video camera trained on a single wooden chair. A large muslim flag with crossed swords made a backdrop.

They were handling me pretty roughly but I figured they were just trying to impress the Al Jazeera guy who was pissed off because he had been waiting so long.

"I've been here since eight o'clock ths morning! I have to get to an IED site by noon, lets get this thing on!" he was yelling in Arabic.

They quickly tied me to the chair and blindfolded me. I could feel the cold steel of the saber against the back of my neck.

"Infidel!", Amar shouted in English, which was pretty decent. "Filthy Christian! American pig! You will renounce your government, your president! You will admit to the Zionist plot against the Arab people! You will renounce your filthy religion or, by Allah, I will cut your head off!"

The room was silent for a moment until the true meaning of his request sunk in and I started to laugh - a giggle at first and then outright laughter which turned to tears.

"Is that it?" I asked. "Thats all? Of course I do!"

We all had a pretty good laugh about it later at the reception in the French embassy.

A Peaceful Religion vs a Religion of Peace:

Starry eyed & hopeful, a band of U.S. peace activists' journey was cut short by bfeaking (see FR yesterday) reality.

Katrina and Peacenik fatigued, I wish them luck.
