Like his brother, Malcolm Wood is a generous fellow:

The brother of freed hostage Douglas Wood today visited the senior Islamic cleric who travelled to Iraq to try to secure his brother’s freedom.

Malcolm Wood presented Sheik Taj el-Din al Hilaly, with a gift at his Sydney home and said his help was greatly appreciated …

“At danger to his life and in ill health he went to Iraq and help save our brother Douglas,” Malcolm Wood said today.

“I think it’s likely the Sheik’s efforts helped immeasurably.”

Nice of him to say so, and possibly even useful in the context of whatever bridge-building is meant to be underway with moderate Muslim leaders, but the Sheikh’s bizarre record doesn’t exactly indicate a lot of helping.
