State Dept.: U.S. Hostage Tom Fox Killed

3 minutes ago

An American who was among four Christian activists kidnapped last year in Iraq has been killed, a State Department spokesman said Friday.

The FBI verified that a body found in Iraq Friday morning was that of Tom Fox, 54, of Clear Brook, Va., spokesman Noel Clay said. He said he had no information on the other three hostages.

It was mentioned earlier, but you've fleshed...er...developed the idea much better. I agree - totally.

I will say a prayer for his soul and his loved ones, but was a fool who tried to show the evil of his own country, rather than of the enemy. The people with who he sided, not surprisingly, murdered him.

The irony of the hate-Bush anti-war crowd is staggering. Nick Berg's dad hates Bush more than the cowards who murdered his son.

This swords of righteousness brigades looks like eather an al-Qaeda front group or more likely a criminal gang that just wants money. They probably sold the American to Zarqawi a couple days ago. Which means there might be another snuff flick to come out in one to three days.

It was a good analogy back then, too. The appeasement scientist was given a Lenin beard and he wore the Russian style cap. If that wasn't enough, he was more than happy to sacrifice everyone at the arctic base on behalf of his ideas about peace. They didn't dig that style too much in the cold war I grew up in. I still don't.

This mis-guided person said this:

http://electroniciraq.net/news/2212.shtml

"As I survey the landscape here in Iraq, dehumanization seems to be the operative means of relating to each other. U.S. forces in their quest to hunt down and kill "terrorists" are as a result of this dehumanizing word, not only killing "terrorist", but also killing innocent Iraqis: men, women and children in the various towns and villages."

He felt he had to go to Iraq to monitor the U.S. forces, and instead he found that the poor "terrorists" whom he foolishly thought were the victims, turned out to be the murderers.

Rather than proving the U.S. military was killing innocents, he found that the terrorists were doing the killing.

Sad that he had to lose his life.

Statement by CPT on killing of Fox.............

CPT Release: CPT Release: We Mourn the Loss of Tom Fox

10 March 2006

In grief we tremble before God who wraps us with compassion. The death of our beloved colleague and friend pierces us with pain. Tom Fox’s body was found in Baghdad yesterday.

Christian Peacemaker Teams extends our deep and heartfelt condolences to the family and community of Tom Fox, with whom we have traveled so closely in these days of crisis.

We mourn the loss of Tom Fox who combined a lightness of spirit, a firm opposition to all oppression, and the recognition of God in everyone.

We renew our plea for the safe release of Harmeet Sooden, Jim Loney and Norman Kember. Each of our teammates has responded to Jesus’ prophetic call to live out a nonviolent alternative to the cycle of violence and revenge.

In response to Tom’s passing, we ask that everyone set aside inclinations to vilify or demonize others, no matter what they have done. In Tom’s own words: "We reject violence to punish anyone. We ask that there be no retaliation on relatives or property. We forgive those who consider us their enemies. We hope that in loving both friends and enemies and by intervening nonviolently to aid those who are systematically oppressed, we can contribute in some small way to transforming this volatile situation.”

Even as we grieve the loss of our beloved colleague, we stand in the light of his strong witness to the power of love and the courage of nonviolence. That light reveals the way out of fear and grief and war.

Through these days of crisis, Christian Peacemaker Teams has been surrounded and upheld by a great outpouring of compassion: messages of support, acts of mercy, prayers, and public actions offered by the most senior religious councils and by school children, by political leaders and by those organizing for justice and human rights, by friends in distant nations and by strangers near at hand. These words and actions sustain us. While one of our teammates is lost to us, the strength of this outpouring is not lost to God’s movement for just peace among all peoples.

At the forefront of that support are strong and courageous actions from Muslim brothers and sisters throughout the world for which we are profoundly grateful. Their graciousness inspires us to continue working for the day when Christians speak up as boldly for the human rights of thousands Iraqis still detained illegally by the United States and United Kingdom.

Such an outpouring of action for justice and peace would be a fitting memorial for Tom. Let us all join our voices on behalf of those who continue to suffer under occupation, whose loved ones have been killed or are missing. In so doing, we may hasten the day when both those who are wrongly detained and those who bear arms will return safely to their homes. In such a peace we will find solace for our grief.

Despite the tragedy of this day, we remain committed to put into practice these words of Jim Loney: “With the waging of war, we will not comply. With the help of God’s grace, we will struggle for justice. With God’s abiding kindness, we will love even our enemies.” We continue in hope for Jim, Harmeet and Norman’s safe return home safe.

Of course, he could have been murdered by people who didn't like what he was doing there. Who knows how many 'false flag' things go on?

Yeah, it was probably the usual suspects, but sheesh...who knows anymore? The world seems filled with people who think that any immorality is justified for the survival of _________ (fill in the blank).

If we were serious about ending this we'd simply announce that everytime a terrorist beheaded an american citizen we'd raze a large town in the region the crime occurred and kill all the occupants.

Pretty soon the village inhabitants in the rest of the towns would be so inspired to prevent terrorism this sort of thing would quit happening.

Remember the idiot human shields in 2003? They went on a long, long bus trip to Iraq but their bus broke down. When they finally got there, Hussein wanted a thousand bucks from each. Then, he wanted them to be human shields at places like powerplants that were targets. They didn't bargain on that, so they went back home.

"Which means there might be another snuff flick to come out in one to three days."
As you mentioned these gang of thugs may have turned him over to zmans goons. Makes sense. Hopefully with zman's migration to eastern Iraq, he may choose to make a break at the wrong time and at the wrong place and get nabbed. Else he is history. Once in Iran he is free as a bird. At least his dream finally seems to be coming to an end. As we had discussed in earlier articles, the high probability of him going to Iran with his destination either in Afghanistan or the boarder regions with Pakistan as his final stop.
But so be it. At least his organization is being decimated in all the previous provinces he had a control in. And more Sunni continue to ease up, or at least it seems indicative they are coming around.
With the Iraqi Army doing as well as it is, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Now with Jaffari looking daily like he is out, perhaps more cool heads will prevail and see the possibilities of more compromise. It is possible.
At any rate, will be away for a day or so due to attending funeral and family visiting. Do have a good weekend.

Hi All-

Tom Fox, you should have known better than to mingle with those vile serpents. I'm sort of sorry you were killed, well, I'm not so sure. At least your death is helping to prove a point and it wasn't some innocent person snatched off the streets of Cleveland by a bunch of Muslim fantatics. Good luck in the afterworld.

more updated story for you all


WASHINGTON - An American who was among four Christian activists kidnapped last year in Iraq has been killed, a State Department spokesman said Friday.

The FBI verified that a body found in Iraq Friday morning was that of Tom Fox, 54, of Clear Brook, Va., spokesman Noel Clay said. He said he had no information on the other three hostages.

Clay said he did not know how Fox was killed but said additional forensics will be done in the United States. The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad is investigating, he said.

Fox's family has been notified, Clay said, and "our heartfelt condolences go out to them."

"The State Department continues to call for the unconditional release of all other hostages" in Iraq, the spokesman said.

Fox's organization, Christian Peacemaker Teams, said Friday, "We mourn the loss of Tom Fox, who combined a lightness of spirit, a firm opposition to all oppression, and the recognition of God in everyone."

Christian Peacemaker co-directors Doug Pritchard and Carol Rose said in a statement, "In response to Tom's passing, we ask that everyone set aside inclinations to vilify or demonize others, no matter what they have done."

"This guy was not after martyrdom by any means," said Paul Slattery of McLean, Va., who was a member of Fox's U.S.-based support team. "He actually believed in his heart that he would better them by his conviction and his beliefs and his skills, and I think largely succeeded.

"What he leaves behind is a tremendous challenge for the rest of us and a guiding force."

Fox was the one American among four Christian Peacemaker activists kidnapped last year in Iraq.

On Tuesday, Al-Jazeera television aired footage of the three other activists purportedly appealing to their governments to secure their release.

The hostages seen in the brief video dated Feb. 28 were Canadians James Loney, 41, and Harmeet Singh Sooden, 32; and Briton Norman Kember, 74.

Allan Slater, a Canadian member of Christian Peacemaker Teams, said at the time that he was disturbed not to see Fox.

"We certainly are hopeful when we see three of our friends alive, but also it's very distressing that we didn't see Tom Fox, and I wouldn't want to hide that because I'm sure it's very distressful for Tom's family and friends as well," Slater told The Canadian Press from Baghdad.

The previously unknown Swords of Righteousness Brigades claimed responsibility for kidnapping the four workers, who disappeared Nov. 26.

The four had not been heard from since a videotape aired by Al-Jazeera on Jan. 28, dated from a week before. A statement reportedly accompanying that tape said the hostages would be killed unless all Iraqi prisoners were released from U.S. and Iraqi prisons. No deadline was set.

Iraqi and Western security officials repeatedly warned the activists before their abduction that they were taking a grave risk by moving around Baghdad without bodyguards.

Christian Peacemaker Teams had been working in Iraq since October 2002, investigating allegations that U.S. and Iraqi forces abused Iraqi detainees. Its teams host human rights conferences in conflict zones, promoting peaceful solutions.

Slattery said Fox worked on three major projects: helping families of incarcerated Iraqis, escorting shipments of medicine to clinics and hospitals in Fallujah and helping form Islamic Peacemaker Teams.

In the three years since the U.S.-led coalition invaded Iraq, insurgents have kidnapped at least 250 foreigners and killed at least 40 of them.

In one of the most high-profile cases, Jill Carroll, a freelance writer for The Christian Science Monitor, was kidnapped Jan. 7 in Baghdad. Three videotapes of Carroll delivered by her kidnappers to Arab satellite television stations identified the group holding her as the Revenge Brigades.

Carroll's kidnappers have publicly demanded the release of all female detainees in Iraq. The Monitor launched a campaign on Iraqi television stations Wednesday asking Iraqis, in Arabic, to "Please help with the release of journalist Jill Carroll." The list of those kidnapped and killed in Iraq includes Margaret Hassan, the director of CARE international in Iraq and a citizen of Britain, Ireland and Iraq; Ronald Schulz, an industrial electrician from Anchorage, Alaska; Nicholas Berg, a businessman from West Chester, Pa.; Jack Hensley, a civil engineer from Marietta, Ga.; and Eugene "Jack" Armstrong, formerly of Hillsdale, Mich.

but I can't think of an American in recent memory who escaped (whatever there was to escape) and "tell us of his mistakes".

There was a contracted truck driver for Halliburton who lived to tell his story. Escaped under his own power with busted arms and knees. Shortly after Baghdad fell and right before we captured Saddam.

TROP murders an innocent Christian again. Lets see what our "good friends" in the UAE say about this.

Lets see their dictator-King get in front of the world media and condemn this vicious murder by his fellow Muslims done in the name of their so-called god!

Of course that will never happen cause they are also true believers of Islam that demands the violent death of all who reject the horrible and violent musings of its fatal prophet!

It makes me sick to hear our President praise these people and kowtow to them!

May God Almighty deliver all of mankind from the murderous bloody hands of the Islamic fascists!

Yup. That's a tactic that worked well in Chechnya, (former) Yugoslavia and also one notable for keeping the Nazi's loved by the world and stopping people joining the war on the side of their enemies.

"He was an American regardless."

One should not judge a man by the color of his Passport, but by the character of the man....

I've become a LOT more selective of whom I think of as "Americans"....

To me, being an American is more a statement of the spirit and heart......than just the place of residence.
