Karma Catches a Journalist
Most liberals were restrained in their immediate reaction to the terrorist atrocities of 9/11, awkwardly attempting to lump Christians in with Muslims, muttering incoherently about Western imperialism, or squawking absurdly, “Retaliate against who?” But not a moonbat named Beverly, who would have been ready to campaign for Obama on September 12.
The September 11 terror attacks were a watershed event in the life of a Canadian journalist named Beverly Giesebrecht.
Soon after Al Qaeda terrorists killed 3,000 people in the U.S., Giesebrecht converted to Islam, adopted a new name — Khadija Abdul Qahaar — and spent the next two years studying the Koran in Egypt.
She created a pro-Jihadi Web site, Jihad Unspun, and she developed a network of contacts, contributors and translators, some of whom introduced her to the Taliban in Pakistan.
But though the lunatics are running the asylum now, there is still such a thing as natural justice.
And then last November, the Taliban, the group she had befriended, kidnapped her while she was chasing a story in the Bannu region of northern Pakistan. In a video released after her capture, Qahaar says she’s being held by the Taliban, though it’s not clear exactly who is holding her. Officials have not provided clarification, saying only that there are many criminal gangs in the region who call themselves the Taliban.
Now, four and a half months later, 11th-hour negotiations continue in efforts to save Qahaar’s life and secure her release. Her captors have demanded $375,000 in ransom money by the end of March, and they have threatened to kill her if their demand isn’t met.
Surprise: lying down with rattlesnakes can get you bit. If only voters understood this, we would have much better leadership.
Now her only hope is the Western armies she betrayed for the sake of Islamomoonbattery. I’d hate to be the soldier who has to risk his life to rescue this woman from her own vileness and stupidity.
