Can it get any more hypocritical? There is no compusion...

There is no compulsion in Islam
Kidnapped Fox journalists convert to Islam on video

GAZA (Reuters) - Two kidnapped Fox journalists appeared on a new videotape released by their captors on Sunday in the Gaza Strip, in which the reporters said they had converted to Islam, the Fox News Channel said.

Palestinian Interior Minister Saeed Seyam said efforts were under way to secure within hours the release of Fox correspondent Steve Centanni, a 60-year-old American, and New Zealand-born cameraman Olaf Wiig, 36.

Both journalists appeared to be in good health in the new video. They were seized on August 14.

They were shown separately sitting cross-legged, reading a statement which Fox said was an announcement that they had converted to Islam. At times in the video they were wearing long Muslim robes.

Wiig called on leaders of the West to stop "hiding behind the 'I don't negotiate with terrorists' myth". He then read some words in Arabic.

"The issue of the two kidnapped journalists is on the way to being resolved," Seyam told Reuters. "Efforts are under way with several parties to secure their release within the coming hours."

The previously unknown Holy Jihad Brigades claimed responsibility on Wednesday for the kidnapping and had warned the United States to free Muslim prisoners or the captives would face unspecified consequences. The deadline expired on Saturday.

The United States has said it would not make "concessions to terrorists".

A videotape released on Wednesday showed the two men, dressed in tracksuits, sitting on a blanket in front of a black background. They appeared fairly relaxed and in good health. Both said that they were fine and being treated well.

The kidnapping is the longest-lasting abduction of foreigners in the Palestinian coastal strip in more than a year.

They converted to Islam! Surely not the stockholm syndrome, let's name it how it has always been: convert or die.

What happens if they apostasize (sp? - I mean go back to what they were before, methodists, catholics, wiccans or whatever?) . Do they get their heads chopped off?

It's not just 'convert or die', they also need to stay converted or die.

So it's carpet-kissing, head-banging, meteorite worshipping, ass-in-the-air, obsessive compulsive rituals five times a day for the rest of their lives. No more booze, no more bacon, no more Christmas trees, no more LEGO for the kids.

And of course they'll have to answer the question faced by all new converts to Islam ... "Have you started beating your wife?"

Allah Akhbar!!!

Call it cowardice, call it Stolkhome syndrome, call it what you will, but after the post release statement from Centani that he "has the greatest respect for Islam" he has lost all credibility as far as I am concerned.

See the full report on Michelle Malkin - they converted to Islam at gunpoint.

They are under duress not only in the time frame of being physically in captivity, but for all the future until the world is rid of the menace of Islam. Therefore I do not judge them; their story is G-d's warning of the Islamic threat sent unto us.

These Jihadi fools keep figuring out new ways to make themselves look even stupider than we ever imagined them to be.

Everytime they do something stupid the public becomes more aware of what kind of evil enemy we are up against.

Think about it this way, when they make a video with these guys proclaiming they are now Muslims, the Western public will think to themselves, "They actually expect us to believe that? They are so friggin' stupid, how could we entertain any of their stupid demands at all?"

Do you guys agree?

How came they converted ? We all know why they declare that...but from the momment they are free...they are not muslims if they dont feel like. There is no conversion available when is against your will, or when the penalty is death if you dont declare. Did they give any diploma of muslim ? Any prove ?
Lets get real...any of us with a gun at his head will do the same.

Well, yes, there will be a greater hypocrisy. The benevolent advocates of diversity and multiculturalism who worship dialog will find a way to not listen that this event occurred and will keep claiming Islam is a religion of piece. I hate these traitors more than the muslims themselves.
