Palestinians saddened at Fox's killing (Murdered American sat in front of Israeli bulldozers)
Jerusalem Post ^ | Mar. 11, 2006

Palestinians throughout the West Bank expressed sorrow Saturday over the killing of American Tom Fox, 54, who had traveled to the West Bank to protest for their cause before he was taken hostage in Iraq.

Fox's body was found shot in the head and chest Thursday near a Baghdad railway station. He had worked with Christian Peacemaker Teams in the Palestinian areas before he began work with the group in Iraq.

Fox, from Clear Brook, Virginia, had demonstrated in the West Bank town of Jayyus against the construction of the security fence and he helped Palestinians pick olives, local Palestinians said.

"Tom used to sit in front of the (Israeli) bulldozers to block them," said Jayyus' mayor, Shawka Shamha. "Hearing news that he was killed makes me very sad."

Sharif Omar also from Jayyus said that Fox lived at his brother's house for three months while local Palestinians and foreign activists protested against the construction of the barrier.

"I'm very sorry to hear that he has been killed," Omar said.

Palestinians in the West Bank city of Hebron also remembered Fox. Neither Fox nor the Briton and two Canadians taken hostage with him deserved to die, said Hisham Sharabati, a human rights activist who met Fox.

"I'm calling for the kidnappers to release the other hostages," Sharabati said. "This killing harmed the Palestinian and Iraqi causes because the hostages were working for peace."

The two Canadians - James Loney and Harmeet Singh Sooden - also worked in the Palestinian areas.

When the four were taken hostage in November last year, the Palestinians' top Muslim clergyman, Mufti Ikrema Sabri, called for their immediate release.

Beyond anything else, how anything can be termed a "wall" when between 95% and 97% of the structure is purely fence is utterly beyond me.

These fools should know that if they don't get killed now...it's only a matter of time.

Their protests only delay the eventual.

In the eyes of fanatical Muslims no peace activist is a friend.

They are called "peace activists," but, in reality, they are just supporters of terror. When did a "peace activist" ever sit in a Jerusalem bus or a Tel Aviv cafe to protest suicide bombers?

These "peace idiots" deserve what they get. In the end, they are still an infidel, and when they no longer serve as a usefull tool for the Jihadists, They are given Mohammad inspired "justice".

This should be an example that all these leftist idiots should pay attention to. This is the reward they will recieve for all the help they give to the barbaric animals, the son's of Satan, enemy of all mankind.

But Abu-Mahd (who killed him) thought it right."

The idiocy of the pacifists.

From what I've seen with these people....

it's usually over-use of illegal drugs that damage the parts of the brain supporting logic.....

and inevitably......

the loss of a conscience!

Codswallop. They were working for the insurgents who took them hostage and killed one of their number.

Being an American trumps all, as far as the kidnappers were concerned. It is no accident that only the American was killed.

"Being an American trumps all, as far as the kidnappers were concerned."

Being an Infidel - a Christian, a Jew, a non-believer - is what trumps all, not just with these medieval butchers but also with many ordinary followers of Islam.

These peace activists are both stupid and evil. Innocent people die because they have to make spectacles of themselves. It's a big ego trip. I fully expect to see Cindy Sheehan show up in Iraq one of these days. Or maybe Iran, when it's a smoking ruin.

By this guys reasoning, if you are against the palistinians, then I suppose you do deserve to die.

Hisham Sharabati was deported from the U.S. in 2002:

"Hisham Sharabati, a Palestinian peace activist who was to have spoken at events sponsored by San Francisco Catholics, was denied entry into the United States July 22 [2002], then deported."

These so-called peace activists are largly hard-core leftists. The left has become profoundly anti-semitic. I won't cry crocodile tears over naifs who side with terrorists. Those who do are hypocrites.

I just find it intersting that what this guy DID NOT SAY was that "no hostage deserves to die". He said only these select few hostages did not deserve to die.

"These so-called peace activists are largly hard-core leftists."

Tom Fox attacks American actions in Fallujah on his blog:

"There are no words. A city that has been demonized by Americans and many Iraqis, using the words “the city of terrorists.” A city that its residents call “the city of mosques.” A city that even its residents have to enter at checkpoints, often taking up to an hour to traverse. A city that is being choked to death economically by those same checkpoints."

I'll shed a tear for people like Rachel Corrie, she was raised in conditions that simulate a madrasa.

They still side with terrorists, and what must be done, must be done. Hang with terrorists, and don't be surprised when 1000 pounds drops in,

Fox had demonstrated in the West Bank town of Jayyus against the construction of the security fence

The Presbyterian Church USA is also working against the fence in Isreal. Was Fox a member of the Democrat Presbyterian Church USA?

Have we heard the family and friends blame Bush and his "illegal war" for his death yet?

The optimist in me would like to see the terrorist sympathizers (aka "peace" movement) learn that these fanatics want them dead as well. The realist in me (who likes to eat the optimist for breakfast) knows that they will use this to argue that Bush is now responsible for the death of an AMerican civilian.

Islamofascists have sent a message to the left wing nuts and moonbat Liberal Socialists of America:

"WE DON"T CARE WHETHER YOU ARE ON OUR SIDE, YOU ARE NOT MUSLIMS AND WE WILL KILL YOU AND USE YOU LIKE THE DIMMI PIGS YOU ARE!"

Now do you liberal socialist wing nuts get it YET?

Make sure to convert to Islam before you go over to Iraq or you will die!( Sarc/)

I'll regret any American death to these evil people, but I have to ask if this guy was related to "Grizzly Man"

Have you heard about this movie? This guy loved Grizzly bears so much that he lived near them and chronicled his life living with the bears.

Unfortunately, one day the bears killed and ate him.

Connection?
