ABC News Palestinian militants who held two Fox News journalists hostage for nearly two weeks threatened in a statement posted online Saturday to abduct non-Muslims visiting the Palestinian territories and kill them unless their demands were met.
Why don't you try killing Palestinian Muslims. If a dog bites a man, it is not a story, but if a man buites dog....The statement, posted in the name of the Holy Jihad Brigades on a Web site frequently used by militants, said the group would kill any hostages it takes unless they converted to Islam, paid a ransom or Muslim prisoners were exchanged for their release.
Why don't you try to find a real job."Any infidel blood will have no sanctity," the group said in the statement.
There are two definitions of sanctity. Do you mean "The quality of being holy or sacred" or "The quality or condition of being safe from assault, trespass, or violation".It was not possible to verify the authenticity of the statement, which was dated August 27 the day militants released American journalist Steve Centanni, 60, and New Zealand cameraman Olaf Wiig, 36. They were seized Aug. 14 in Gaza City.
The militant group had demanded the release of Muslim prisoners held by the United States in exchange for freeing the journalists. During their captivity, the journalists were forced at gunpoint to declare that they had converted to Islam, Centanni told Fox News after he was released. The group said in its statement that the journalists' declaration saved their lives. "Nothing but Islam gave their blood sanctity and prevented their slaughter," the group said.
So you are stupid enough to think they really converted to Islam.It added, "We are not the sort of people who are fooled … but only God knows intentions."
