Is there anyone else out there who thinks that it is more than just a passing possibility that the "kidnapping" of two FoxNews guys in Gaza is complete bullshit?
There is much about this story that does not compute. An entirely unknown new group, that Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hizbollah, Fatah, Al Aqsa, et al. claim absolutely no knowledge of? Kidnapping of American journalists? (not unheard of, but pretty damn rare in the Territories), Political demands of America, not Israel or the P/A?
Here is the passage from the "Holy Jihad Brigades" that really put the skepticism hook in me:
And to add to the bitterness, they placed infidel regimes they called "Democratic" regimes that want to bring us justice and freedom. So some ran [to embrace such regimes] while they knew by heart "(Illegible)"."Fie upon you?" "Curse You George Bush... You and your Democracy Legion Super Friends have won again, but you will be no match for our evil weather manipulation machine..."
God is the only legislator. He is the final Judge in all matters. Like parrots, they all started to shout "Democracy, freedom, elections, referendum". They did not know — or maybe they did but neglected to do what they were supposed to under the pretext that this was not happening on their own soils — that they were only praising states of mental illnesses through which the West went through in its intellectual and ideological struggle to achieve the heavenly justice, and they [Westerners] did away with the causes of their backwardness to prosper, so you can obey them and they can play God. "Fie upon you, and upon the things that ye worship".
Come on... I'm supposed to believe this shit?
Look, I know that I'm being all impolite and impolitic by not holding my breath and offering continual silent rosaries 24 hours a day for the safe return of these two, while heaping prayers of hatred and violence upon the wicked, swarthy heathen brown Asian man, and if these guys are truly in danger, then I apologize for my insensitivities.
On the other hand, this is exactly the kind of ham-handed, melodramatic stunt I would expect from the sideways reality engineers and Republican Party hacks of FoxNews.
Sorry, this thing simply does not pass the sniff test. And I would be Jack's complete-lack-of-credulity-and-surprise to learn that this was all a FoxNews publicity trick to "alert us all to the dangers of international terrorism..." or something...
Is there anyone else out there expressing similar thoughts right now?
