'She wanted to learn about Jihad' (Taliban threaten to behead pro-Islamic Canadian hostage)
timesnow.tv ^ | March 19, 2009

Posted on 03/20/2009 4:33:44 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

After the United Nations diplomat John Solecki, who had forcefully converted to Islam under the doctrine of the Taliban militants, a Canadian journalist - Beverly Giesbrecht, became the latest Taliban target, with the deadline of March 30 being announced by the militants for her release.

Even as the 48-hour deadline for kidnapped United Nations official John Solecki ends, the Taliban has released another hostage video, this time of a Canadian journalist, threatening to behead her by March 30.

As Beverly desperately calls out for help, she says, "The timeline is very short and my life is going to end. So I need someone to help me. My country or someone else have to make a move now, as my life is going to be over very shortly."

The irony is Beverly - now Khadija Adbul Qahaar - publisher of a pro-Islamic website 'Jihad Unspun', was in Pakistan to understand the concept of 'Jihad', when the Taliban kidnapped her in North Wazirstan.

"A previous video has been made and distributed to my Embassy, to the Pakistan government and to the various NGOs and groups, in order to try to meet the demnads that they're (the Taliban terror outfits) are making but....," trails off Beverly.

A cash strapped Taliban, at first demanded USD 2 millions, and have now settled for USD 3 hundred and 75 thousand ransom.

As the deadline for the execution of kidnapped United Nations man John Solecki lapsed, the timing of Beverly's hostage video release, served as grim reminder for foreigners in Pakistan that they have become the Taliban terror groups' most negotiable currecy in their holy war.

Guess she didn’t know where to find books that would have enlightend her..there are any number of resources she could have utilized short of converting and a trip to Pakistan. Even watching a beheading on TV should have done it for her. Be careful what you wish for next time??? No fool like an old fool??? Take your pick.

"Stupid can get you very dead."

And that includes electing and obeying leaders who are too stupid to recognize a vicious,amoral enemy.

“leaders who are too stupid to recognize a vicious, amoral enemy”

I’m kind of hoping that 0 , in an effort of good faith, makes it a point to meet with them without security since he trusts them so much.

Well, Beverly, I wish you only good and no ill, but it’s too bad that you were so “stuck on stupid” that now you are getting a first-hand lesson in the real meaning of Jihad.

Let’s hope you survive, although there certainly should not be any “ransom” paid to Jihad scum who will use it to support their further terrorist activities.

(you can find her on Youtube too)

"I am not a “terrorist”, a fanatic or mentally off-balance.....I am a level-headed, capable woman, a humanitarian and a contributing member of society. In my former life, I was Bev Giesbrecht"

Now she is "Khadija Abdul Qahaar" - Bev was easier to say. Soon to be worm food. Good riddance to this level-headed woman who says she is not mentally off balance.

Care factor = Zero

Next...

Thought for the day:

Message to those who pay ransom to jihadis — remember that ransom money pays for more terrorism and terrorists.

#

Thank you for the ping Velveeta.

As you know, I have no sympathy for anyone who publishes a pro-jihad leaning site. Personally, I always considered jihadunspun a jihad glorifying, jihad enabling site. It was/is disgraceful.

###

Message to the Taliban:

If you kill Khadija Adbul Qahaar; you’re sending a message loud and clear that pro-jihad women and women jihadis are worthless to Allah and are pawns to be used and abused for the sake of jihad. No glory for Jihad and no glory for Allah.
