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.

I thought of you, and my crass comment yesterday, I'm sorry if that was too graphic. I just saw that he wasn't beheaded, according to Yahoo.

I posted this thread the other day. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1593064/posts
The pastor in reference would fit in just fine in the CPT organization. When will these people learn?

The top question on the cpt site is: What would happen if Christians devoted the same discipline and self-sacrifice to nonviolent peacemaking that armies devote to war?

What happens to them? Like Tom has learned, they get tortured and murdered.

May he rest in peace.
This poor misguided soul was giving aid and comfort to the enemy and the enemy destroyed him. Maybe other peace-niks will learn the lesson that you can't deal with the devil.

The statement added, "We (Christian Peacemaker Teams) believe that the root cause of the abduction of our colleagues is the U.S. and British-led invasion and occupation of Iraq."

No the root cause of the abductions is that the people are THERE and targets for abduction.

Hey man, I was there! Ol' Achmed was watchin' Wolf Blitzer on CNN and that Fox dude wouldn't shut up. I told him, keep it down man, you're gonna piss off that raghead. But NOOOOOOOOOOO, would he listen? OH No!! He wanted to hold hands and me to sing too. No F'n way, man!
Then one of those dudes with an AK-47 and a tablecloth on his face came in. Uh oh, time to hit the deck!
That's when ol' Foxy whipped out his autographed Jane Fonda and John Kerry pictures.
Didn't impress Mahmud one damn bit!

Mr. Fox died doing what he believed in. Enabling terrorism.

Good grief! Is that photo really of the human shields? It looks like something from some drug addled commune circa 1968. You're 100% correct, though, these people do not live in the real world and giving them any control of anything other than the trainwrecks of their own lives will get us all killed.

From his sponsor:

Current Violence Reduction Projects

Arizona – a seasonal presence along the Arizona/ Mexico border since 2004. As part of a campaign to challenge U.S. immigration policies that result in hundreds of migrant deaths in the dessert every summer, team members conduct cross-border prayer vigils, remain alert to vigilante threats and monitor border patrol officers’ treatment of migrants.

Iraq – a Baghdad-based presence since October 2002. Team members accompanied the Iraqi people through the U.S.-led 2003 war and continue during the post-war occupation to expose abusive acts by U.S. Armed Forces and support Iraqis committed to nonviolent resistance.

CPT embraces the vision of unarmed intervention waged by committed peacemakers ready to risk injury and death in bold attempts to transform lethal conflict through the nonviolent power of God’s truth and love.




Reckon the bastard got his wish!

He was executed by the henchmen of the man he supported. Ping.

The frafting of religion into Marxism will ensure that many of them will never learn since it magnifies gutter ideology to become world-view, philosophy and eternal purpose. These freaks are in it for the long haul and the apostate seminaries are churning them out by the thousands. If we want peace in Iraq, maybe we should bomb liberation theology seminaries?

Well, I might not have stated it in exactly those terms, but I agree with your basic conclusions. This deluded, rootless and anti-American man sought, and got, his own death.

"I wonder where you got your information that he suffered before they murdered him."

Police: U.S. hostage shot, tortured

But then, that's no real surprise to most of us.

I wonder if his family was against his trip. I bet if they were, they're pretty mad at him right now.
