Skip to comments.Hostage Crisis: What is Kofi Annan doing for the kidnapped Israeli soldiers?
Posted on 08/28/2006 7:51:50 AM PDT by baystaterebel
As the parents of Daniel Pearl, The Wall Street Journal's reporter who was kidnapped and brutally murdered in Pakistan in 2002, we share the anguish of the families of the kidnapped Israeli soldiers, and their frustration with the international community for failing to secure the release of their loved ones. For more than six weeks now, these soldiers and their families live each day tortured by unimaginable fears and shattered hopes, praying desperately for the nightmare to end; we relive this nightmare each time an innocent person falls victim to the inhumanity of terrorist abduction.
Whatever success the U.N. Security Council would presume to claim, it cannot be said that Resolution 1701 has effectively addressed the direct cause of the fighting--the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers, Ehud Goldwasser, 31, and Eldad Regev, 26, by Hezbollah, and the earlier abduction of Gilad Shalit, 19, by Hamas. Secretary-General Kofi Annan's call for the unconditional release of these soldiers has been ignored. Moreover, in flagrant violation of international humanitarian law, the terrorists have not only seized the soldiers as hostages for political blackmail, they have not allowed the Red Cross to visit them. Their families do not know their physical condition; they have no proof they are even alive.

What is Kofi doing? Enjoying the perks of his job.
Thats about it. In fact thats about all he has ever done.
A man promoted above his abilities.
The very idea that the UN cares in any way about these issues is preposterous.
They're too busy with their successful "children for sex" sales and their ongoing slaughter of East Africans in the Sudan for silly humanitarian notions.
The Pearls must have them in stitches.
Kofi Annan is a crook.
He had a low plateau to begin with. He transcended it the day he left Ghana.
The answer behind most doors at the UN is "Who cares, they are only Jews".
Kofi Annan is doing his job. Which is protecting Hezbollah and working toward Israel's destruction.
Can you document that Kofi is a Muslim?
Kofi Annan is a Christian.
"Annan, who graduated from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minn., the
Institut Universitaire de Hautes Edudes Internationales in Geneva,
Switzerland, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, also
attended a Methodist primary school in his native Ghana. He credited
his religious teachers and scripture with instilling in him the
principles that guide his life and work. Annan is a Christian, who
attends a number of Protestant churches in New York, according to his
Kofi's on a tax-payer paid vacation to the Middle East. He'll accomplish nothing as usual. The man's as useless as bosoms on a boar hog.
He could still be Antisemitic all the same.
That said..he has just released a statement demanding the soldiers be released.
Not making a judgment here. My reply was simply a copy/paste of "kofi anus and muslim" in google. While he may technically be a chritian he sure as hell doesn't act like one.
Knowing Kofi, he and his son are probably taking bets on whether or not they'll be released alive. He and Kojo always looking for a way to make a little money on the side.
Kofi must belong to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
"One action that the PC(USA) has initiated in an effort to seek peace is a phased, selective process of divestment with corporations whose practices support the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, assist the construction of the Separation Barrier, or facilitate Israelis or Palestinians with violent acts against innocent civilians. You've come to the right place if you want to know more about that action and other ways the church is working for a just peace in Israel and Palestine. ~ Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). "
More importantly, what is Ehud Olmert doing for the kidnapped Israeli soldiers? We all know Kofi doesn't give a damn.
