Not by playing to their decency or humanity but by emphasizing how much more useful he is to them alive, as a mouthpiece for Palestinian terrorism. They sure know their audience.


Update: “Mustafa Wafi, a senior Palestinian security official, said the kidnapping was unusual because no demands have been made. ‘This is the first time kidnappers haven’t identified themselves or their demands,’ Wafi said. ‘Usually kidnappers announce who they are, sometimes as soon as they kidnap.’”

There should be a total blackout on this story until the two captives are released or confirmed dead. Then, the American and European news media should boycott any contact with the Gaza government and people because of their barbaric behavior towards the Western media over the years, culmulating in this outrage.

I don’t except this to happen,though. Whatever the outcome here, the media will happily continue to serve as the lapdogs of the Nazis, called “freedom fighters”by the media.

half a century a go, we’d have been up in arms as a nation over this… which is why that kind of thing didn’t happen much back then. How many people will have to be kidnapped and executed before america gets fed up and takes action to stop this?

Rahjr2K, I don’t know if America will ever get fed up about this. As is always mentioned, during WW 2, the whole country sacrificed with most people having a close relative in Service and if not by rationing of food, gas and other must haves such as silk stockings for women. I guess when the country as a whole feels some sort of connection, then things like this may mean something. However, in the meantime we have 24/7 on this freak coming home to face charges in the JonBenet case and what all the celebs are up to this weekend.

If we can somehow convince them that Fox is a leftist media outlet…

The President should publicly threaten the PA with total destruction if Centanni and his producer are not released.

A ten second statement. This is an outrage, these barbarians know no boundaries.
