    Why are terrorists treating a reporter from the BBC like this?

    Will the BBC blame Pres Bush for this?


    Terrorists Release Video of Kidnapped BBC Journalist Alan Johnston Wearing Homicide Bomb Vest
    Monday, June 25, 2007


    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — A video recording released Monday shows kidnapped British journalist Alan Johnston wearing an apparent explosives belt of the type homicide bombers use and warning it will be detonated if an attempt is made to free him by force.

    The video, about one minute, 42 seconds long, was posted on a Web site that has been used by militant groups in the past. It opens with the title "Alan's Appeal" in both English and Arabic and features the logo of the Army of Islam, a shadowy group that has claimed responsibility for snatching Johnston, a British Broadcasting Corp. correspondent.

    "Captors tell me that very promising negotiations were ruined when the Hamas movement and the British government decided to press for a military solution to this kidnapping," Johnston says in the recording, looking nervous and stressed.

    "And the situation is now very serious, as you can see."

    Johnston is seen wearing a red sweater with a blue and white checked vest strapped around his body — the apparent bomb belt.

    "I have been dressed in what is an explosive belt, which the kidnappers say will be detonated if there is an attempt to storm the area," he continues. "They say they are ready to turn the hide-out into what they describe as a death zone if there is an attempt to free me by force."

    Ok, so Hamas has as much 'control' over the factions in 'Palestine' as Fatah did. Oh joy. Such peaceful people, let's give them their own state.

    CNN is doing just that


    CNN Shills For Hamas: ‘This is Law and Order in the New Gaza’
    Posted by Noel Sheppard on June 22, 2007 - 14:23.
    Last week, the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas took over Gaza in what was described by many as a bloodbath.

    Just days later, CNN’s Ben Wedeman filed a report from the region in which he glowingly praised these terrorists’ efforts to bring “law and order in the new Gaza.”

    In a video segment that was aired at various times Thursday, Wedeman exclusively interviewed Gaza residents who seemed thrilled now that Hamas has wrested control of the region.

    At the same time, no mention was given to: the killing that preceded his interviews, or the number of injured waiting for medical assistance and/or to be evacuated.

    It's all Israel's fault and what isn't theirs is the US's fault:
