ISIS Kidnaps Four European Hostages

The Islamic State is getting a lot of bad publicity lately, which actually proves how successful they are.
Islamic State terrorists start out young.

Islamic State terrorists start out young.

Islamic State terrorists have seized four more foreign journalists and aid workers, two of them Italian women, bring to more than 24 the number of hostages they are holding, presumably alive for the time being.

The terrorists, still described as “militants” by wire services, abducted their victims in Aleppo or Idlib in western Syria and have moved them to the ISIS stronghold in the north.

ISIS terrorists this year have freed at least 10 kidnap victims after receiving a ransom.

One of the abductors of a British citizen who later was freed was the same terrorist who appeared as the executioner of James Foley in the video posted by ISIS, showing the masked killer beheading Foley, a journalist.

    Okay! It’s time that all the journalists and relief workers are given a serious discussion on the realities of putting themselves in the thick of wars going on in the middle eastern countries run by terrorists. They need to see themselves as soldiers that may end up a casualty or captive. Negotiations with any terrorist group should never happen. I am sorry if Sound harsh but if we never negotiated in the past it would be a non issue now. This terror campaign against free countries isn’t going away. Some firm decisions need to be made now for the future.

    It’s all Israel’s fault. That’s what they think. Am Yisrael Chai!

  3. I guess it isn’t the HAMAS way of doing things by kidnapping journalists though. They just boot them out of Gaza if they don’t film the children they, themselves have killed.
