Korean Hostage Crisis being ignored

Do you like this story?

Here are the ramaining that are still being held.


Let me ask a hypothetical question.

Name ONE place in the Western World where Muslims are taken hostage and murdered…

Can’t think of one?

How bout this….

Name ONE place in the Muslim World where Christians are taken hostage and murdered…

I can think of a dozen just off the top of my head.

In the West, we actually hunt down the perpetrators and arrest them.  If there were 19 Americans who hijacked 4 airliners, you can bet your ass that the US would help whatever country it happened to, hunt down the killers and condemn the ideology in which the motives came from.

Shouldn’t this just shine a glimpse into the ideological systems 3rd world Islamic ruled societies?

Michelle Malkin has great coverage of this…

“The blood of innocent Christian missionaries spills on Afghan sands. The world watches and yawns. The United Nations offers nothing more than a formal expression of “concern.” Where is the global uproar over the human rights abuses unfolding before our eyes?

For two weeks, a group of South Korean Christians has been held hostage by Taliban thugs in Afghanistan. This is the largest group of foreign hostages taken in Afghanistan since Operation Enduring Freedom began in 2001. What was their offense? Were they smuggling arms into the country? No. Inciting violence? No. They were peaceful believers in Christ on short-term medical and humanitarian missions. Seventeen of the 23 hostages are females. Most of them are nurses who provide social services and relief.

Over the past few days, the bloodthirsty jihadists have demanded that South Korea immediately withdraw troops from the Middle East, pay ransom and trade the civilian missionaries for imprisoned Taliban fighters. The Taliban leaders have made good on threats to kill the kidnapped Christians while Afghan officials plead fecklessly that their monstrous behavior is “un-Islamic.”

    The US hasn’t encouraged Afghanistan to militarily intervene. I think Italy must accept some responsibility for what’s happening to the South Koreans. The Taleban got its way with Italy, so now it believes it can get its way again.

    Good point on Italy, Senior, I had forgotten that they caved to negotiating with the Taliban before, and now they continue to do it because they think they can get away with it.

    I think your right, Italy should feel somewhat responsible for this

    I think what’s happening with the South Koreans is terrible. However correct me if I’m wrong, any time you mix Christian fundamentalist and Islamic fundamentalist, you’re just asking for trouble. From what I heard this South Korean Christian group are very aggressive when it come to there recruiting practices. This tragedy never needed to happen. I’m trying to say this with the friendliest of intention, so if I’m offending anyone, I’m sorry.

  • Infidelesto

    you’re not offending anyone, you’re just stating your opinion and we appreciate it.

    Where is it that you are reading that these South Koreans are “Christian Fundamentalists”? When you say they’re “very aggressive” does that mean they kidnap Muslims and forcefully convert them to Christianity? And if they don’t they get killed?

    It’s naive and downright ignorant to compare Christian Missionaries who are spreading the Christian Gospel peacefully, to a group of murderous, hateful people who stand for an ideology of hate, murder, submission, and domination who will kidnap you and tell you to Convert or DIE.

    Quite a HUGE difference indeed.

    Don’t miss understand what I’m saying, I don’t remember what article I was quoting from. However what I’m trying to saying South Korean Christian Missionaries poking around in a deeply Islamic country during a war time, was just asking for trouble no matter how charitable the motivation. I won’t go as far as calling it stupid; however they couldn’t have done worse if they painted bull eyes on them selves.

  • Infidelesto

    True, I don’t agree with missionary work inside enemy territory during a time of war, but let’s not compare overzealous Christian missionaries with the Convert or Die Muslims in that country.

    Escalate! They killed a hostage – so kill 10 Taleban prisoners. They killed a 2nd hostage, so kill 100 Taleban prisoners. If they kill a thied, kill 1,000 Taleban prisoners. ESCALATE! THAT they might understand. Anything else will just encourage them to do it more.

    Not worry children, I was in direct contact with the Prince of Peace, once his followers wipe out half of humanity he will return. Start off with Afghanistan and work alphebatically .

    BTW The Prince of Peace states he did not lie about Iraq having WMD’s, his latest Prophet George Bush is just simply an idiot.
