You’ll hear no tears from me over Warren Weinstein, the Jewish American hostage taken by Al-Qaeda in Pakistan. Weinstein not only worked for USAID, but, after retiring, decided to remain in Pakistan–for SEVEN years–working for a private contractor. That’s the lifestyle of a far-leftist who is Jewish and American in name only. We all know what happened to Daniel Pearl, who also went to Pakistan of his own accord, just as Weinstein did. Pearl was kidnapped, beheaded, and chopped up like a chicken for dinner because he went to interview individuals he knew were bent on America’s destruction . . . and the Jews’ destruction. But he went anyway. And Warren Weinstein chose to live in Pakistan for seven years as a private citizen.
What kind of “American”–what kind of “Jew”–does that? One who has zero emotional or moral ties to either of those adjectives. Weinstein is supposed to be some sort of expert in “development,” but the only Jews and the only Americans interested in developing Pakistan are the ones who turn a blind eye to Pakistan’s attacks on American soldiers, tourists in Mumbai, and the attack on the Mumbai Chabad Lubavitch Jewish Center. Sleeping with the enemy gives you much more than herpes.
It’s not exactly rocket science to know that if you are Jewish (or Christian) and you go to Pakistan, you are a sitting duck. But these left-wing morons go there anyway, just like the Iranian hikers and the three American “frat boys” who dropped fire bombs on Egyptian police. And all of these groups of people deserve everything they get. We shouldn’t be expending political or monetary capital to secure their releases. But, predictably, that’s what we do. No tears from me for these idealistic-about-Muslims idiots. Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri said he’s using hostage Weinstein in a bid to get America to stop its military operations and Israel to stop “its siege” on Gaza, when, in fact, the only siege in Gaza is the one by HAMAS. Good luck with that. Still, it shows the cowardice of Al-Qaeda, kidnapping a 70-year-old man to get what it wants. While I pray for his safety, he put himself in this mess and will get “extra special treatment” from Al-Qaeda because he is Jewish, even though he probably has as much regard for Jews as Al-Qaeda does.
In a newly released audio message, al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri claims that his organization is holding hostage Warren Weinstein, a 70-year-old American who went missing in August in Pakistan.
Zawahiri’s statement is the first official claim of responsibility by any group in relation to the kidnapping, and a U.S. official said the statement buttressed earlier “indications” that al Qaeda might be holding the American.
“I tell the captive soldiers of Al Qaeda and the Taliban and our female prisoners held in the prisons of the crusaders and their collaborators, we have not forgotten you and in order to free you we have taken hostage the Jewish American Warren Weinstein,” says Zawahiri in the 30-minute statement, which appeared on jihadi websites Thursday and otherwise focuses mainly on the situation in his native Egypt.
The leader of Al Qaeda addresses Weinstein’s family, telling them that “your government tortures our prisoners, but we have not tortured your prisoner.” He also warns them not to trust President Obama’s assurances that everything is being done to secure Weinstein’s release, accusing the president of wishing “[Weinstein] would be killed to get rid of his problem.” . . .
In exchange for Weinstein’s release, Zawahiri requests the lifting of the Israeli “siege” of the Gaza strip, the complete end of “bombings by America and its allies in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and Gaza,” the release of all al Qaeda and Taliban prisoners and the closing down of the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo bay, Cuba, in addition to the release of members of Osama bin Laden’s family. . . .
In August, Pakistani police arrested three men in connection with the kidnapping. Weinstein, a private U.S. citizen who has lived in Pakistan for seven years, was sleeping in his bed when assailants burst into his home to snatch him. The former USAID worker is currently employed by the private U.S.-based development firm J.E. Austin Associates.
Why are we giving aid to this country when we know its ISI is behind so many attacks on American soldiers in Afghanistan, the Mumbia terrorist attacks, and so many other such murderous anti-Western activity?
The only aid we should be giving them is a kick in the pants and more than a few explosions.
