No Tears for Dead Al-Qaeda Hostage Warren Weinstein; Loved Muslims More Than Fellow Americans, Jews

By Debbie Schlussel

This morning, in a live announcement, President Obama told us that American Al-Qaeda hostage Warren Weinstein was killed in an American operation to kill Al-Qaeda operative Adam Gadahn and other American-born terrorists. No tears from me. In fact, Weinstein and Gadahn have something in common other than their American Jewish roots. It’s the fact that both were “American” In Name Only.

Weinstein was killed in heretofore classified January CIA drone strikes on Al-Qaeda outposts in Pakistan and its region. Today, Barack Obama cited Weinstein’s Jewishness as something that Al-Qaeda mentioned in holding him hostage. But his Jewish background was, sadly, far more relevant to Al-Qaeda than it was to Weinstein. Ditto for his “American-ness.” Remember, these Pakistanis Weinstein left his family (he was a husband, father, and grandfather) and his country to help, were the same people who shielded Osama Bin Laden in the world’s crappiest mansion for years. These are the same Pakistanis who hate America with all of their hearts and every millimeter of their minds. The same Pakistanis whose ISI was behind so many deadly attacks on American soldiers in Afghanistan. The same Pakis who proudly murder Christians they falsely accuse of defacing the koran. I feel more for those Christians than someone who went willingly into this mob of haters, to give them aid and comfort. He knew the risks.

Back in 2011, I wrote about Warren Weinstein and who he really was. He was no different than all of the ISIS-kidnapped-and-beheaded American “aid workers” and “humanitarians” who purposely and deliberately risk their lives to help America-haters. They are suddenly “AMERICAN!” when they are kidnapped and want to be saved, when it’s too late. My thoughts about Warren Weinstein from December 2, 2011 are the same today, so they bear repeating:

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 words. 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.

It’s been nearly three-and-a-half years since I wrote those words. And they are as applicable today as they were then. The only difference is that Weinstein is dead. And, frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if we learn that like his fellow deceased, Adam Gadahn, he converted to Islam.

Weinstein willingly gave his life for Islam and Muslims who hate his fellow Americans, his fellow Jews. It’s no different than if a Jewish-American traveled to Nazi Germany during World War II to help the “poor, helpless German people” and then got killed in one of the bombings of Dresden.

I can’t feel sorry for Darwin Award winners who voluntarily offer themselves up as sacrifices to the enemy in Islam’s war against the West.

Committed leftists are committed leftists. They don’t get my sympathy just because their hearts stop beating and rigor mortis has set in.

Karma is a bitch, especially because it doesn’t discriminate based on “intentions” of stupid “humanitarians.” Warren Weinstein knew better. But he did it anyway.

And that’s why he’s dead.

You play with snakes. You get bitten.

Why is Warren Weinstein dead? Because he loved Muslims who hate us more than he loved his family and country.

The feel-good story of the day.

70 years old and still as dumb as a college frat boy. Probably not IQ dumb but dumb in the way that does real damage in the world.
Break out the sweet cakes and let the ululation begin. Maybe Warren Weinstein will hear it and know it what means wherever he is. He didn’t have time to get it in life apparently but then again maybe he did.

And as I’ve said before, if you keep lying down with dogs, you’ll end up sleeping with the fishes. Warren Weinstein is just the latest example of this maxim.

ConcernedPatriot on April 23, 2015 at 6:14 pm

The article is right on the money. My thoughts, exactly.

Just like not all Americans are good , not all people of any nationality , race or religion are all bad. There are always those possessed of heart, soul and intelligence. You, however possess none of these qualities. You and those likeminded are the ones we should fear. Shame on you. And how the hell did your mindless meandering get on my FB? Shame!

Lee Siegel on April 23, 2015 at 10:12 pm

    Lee, if you disagree with DS than you are free to join your Muslim friends and best of luck!

    Lee, if you disagree with DS than you are free to join your Muslim friends! Let us know how that works out for you.

    clate on April 24, 2015 at 1:13 pm

    Lee Siegel: thanks SO much for the kumbaya, together with the nasty slap at the regulars here.

    Does it bother you that one could easily program a version of you to write your type of comment? In other words, does it bother you that you have nothing remotely interesting or original to contribute? That you are utterly generic and tedious?

    skzion on April 24, 2015 at 2:34 pm

    Hey, Siegel. I’m not like many of those who slammed you for being a mumzer. I don’t hate you for being the Kuni Lemmel you are as much as I hate your parents for spawning such a potzevatte nebish as you prostitute yourself to be. I know, there’s plenty more dreck just like you, among us. Maybe one day there will be a cure for you under the label of insidious diseases.

You are great. So delightful to read the words of someone who gets it.

Dear Debbie,

I would not be surprised if this man was working in the intelligence field. In any event, he was likely there for the money rather than out of what he considered to be some moral directive. However, I’m only guessing…

I love reading your take on things though, and more often than not agree! Thanks for giving us back stories and for the work you do for those trying to uphold their oaths of office when their leadership requires them to igonore the law.

Warren Weinstein got his reward. He turned his back on the United States and Judaism for the sake of Muslims who hated him. As noted by Debbie, Weinstein knew what he was getting into, but chose to jump in feet first all the same.

Even if Weinstein & that other Italian guy were genuine hostages, I’d think that they’d be happy to be put out of their misery by a drone strike, as opposed to being beheaded, which would have been likely sooner or later.

I see absolutely no reason to be apologetic about this strike at all! It was a resounding success, and the fact that Gadahn & Farook are dead is reason to celebrate, not wring hands on! Both were traitors, but it would have been an OJ like circus had they been captured and put on trial in the US.

Mission of any US operations in the Mid East – which I today define as going from Turkey/Morocco to Pakistan – should be TAKE NO PRISONERS!!!

I knew the moment I heard Obama utter Weinstein’s short bio exactly what he was. It’s also the reason Obama feels a tiny sliver of remorse- one more anti-American/anti-Israel Obama ally gone.

Another terrorist fellating scumbag bites the dust. Sayonara, suck-air. I hope it hurt a lot.

Occam's Tool on April 24, 2015 at 5:01 pm

I think it should be: “And, frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if we learn that like his fellow DECEDENT [not deceased], Adam Gadahn, he converted to Islam.”

Decedent is the noun, deceased can be both noun and adjective but works better as an adjective here since it is not preceded by “the” deceased.

Apart from the that quibble, I agree with the author.

Jeffrey on April 24, 2015 at 6:17 pm

You were on the story of the mentally ill boy who went berserk on an oregon airliner.

This same “nice boy” was just arrested for april 8 drive by shooting that killed 2 Saudi cops with assistance from Islamic State. Government knew about ramming police cars and nearly hijacking an airliner, but judged he showed no extremist signs. More here:

Oliver Grant on April 28, 2015 at 1:47 pm

Excellent post as always Debbie. Sounds like Weinstein was his own worst enemy.
