Iraqis denied resources

Last updated on August 9th, 2017 at 02:19 pm

Michael Coren on the freed CPT three:

What these men did accomplish was to occupy the time and resources of numerous politicians, civil servants, aid workers and soldiers. Time and resources that could and should have been spent on other people who were in trouble.

Time and resources that could have gone towards helping Iraqis, 10-20 of whom are kidnapped every day, but about whom we read and hear very little because they are not Western, middle-class and privileged.

And here surely is the point. These men were there, perhaps with noble intentions, because they could go there. Not so when Saddam was murdering Kurds or Syria wiping out villages. Because if well-meaning yet colossally naive Westerners had done so they would have been killed without a second thought.

Coren also makes the point that CPT leaders now seem to be “showing a staggering lack of grace and gratitude toward those who liberated their friends.” Read the whole thing.

      Well, it’s a good thing they weren’t as rude to their captors, or else some lefty Aussie journalists would have given them what-for.

    1. I now have come face to face with the minions of the Anti-Christ, the creepos of the CPT. They have put their souls in trust to Islamic murderers, have had one of their own savagely murdered, his corpse thrown in a garbage dump, cut off in the blossoms of his sin, no reckoning made, but sent to his account with all his imperfections on his head, no confession, he surely is rotting in hell. The rest of the CPT can look to nothing better when the final reckoning is made, for they have, to satisfy their arrogance, and to project the “holier-than-thou” pose the Anti-Christ advises, they have put brave and decent people under threat of death and deprived those who deserve aid more than they do of succor. Let us not condemn them for not having the decent civilized response of thankfulness for their rescuers, who no doubt were protected by Jesus in their humanitarian rescue effort. Jesus has shown us more, that these CPT have used deceit, are amoral, and do not deserve to be called Christian.

    1. Mr. Coren makes good points about the idiocy of the CPT….even though he considers the war immoral.

      My God, this is a rare example of the near-extinct objective journalist who is also a reasonable human being.  Quick, get a DNA sample so we can clone copies!!!

    1. In a better world, late night talkshow hosts would hold this group up to unrelenting and well-deserved ridicule.  In this world, they’ll probably be invited to dinner and speeches.

    1. The God of Abraham instructs: You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. This is not just a simple prohibition of swearing but a warning to not misappropriate or abuse his Word, his ordinances, the Works by which He makes himself known. And absolutely not in an effort to further your own ends or justify your actions. CPT, I’m talking to you. Your pretense of piety does not sway us nor does it fool us. And it most certainly does not fool God.

      The rest of us in CPT are also grateful to all those who worked nonviolently and who prayed fervently for their release – religious leaders and soldiers, team-mates and government officials, partner organizations, friends, family, children, women and men all over the world. We are particularly grateful that no one was injured in this rescue operation.

      The soldiers who rescued these ungrateful fools are not nonviolent nor, I’m guessing, did they “pray fervently” on their behalf. They merely were doing one more in a long line of dirty, dangerous jobs undertaken on our behalf. And they are righteous in the eyes of God.

    1. Can we give them back?

    1. Andrea, what a great idea.
      There must be a way.
      If the Iraqis won’t take them back, how about sending them to Saudi with a few bibles in their backpacks.
      That should keep them busy for awhile.

    1. I’d like to know if the CPT takes donations, just so I can avoid giving them so much as a fucking cent.

    1. Hey how about we send them to Afghanistan to protest the newly converted CHristian from the religion of peace.

    1. #10 You betcha they take donations. I wouldn’t give them the publicity to give their site. Probably their largest donors are the Islamist terrorists. The motivation that makes them so anti-Christian is undoubtably the injection of oil money in their brains.

    1. Such “peacemakers” tend to be highly selective in where they choose to make peace

      That’s because these so-called peacemakers are really little more than “fascism-enablers”—which means they have to go where the totalitarians are.

    1. Kember said, “I do not believe that a lasting peace is achieved by armed force, but I pay tribute to their courage and thank those who played a part in my rescue,” but in typical leftoid fashion, offers no alternative solution.  Nor does he address the likely outcome of pulling out the coaltion forces too soon; the rise of yet another islamic nutjob theocracy.  He couldn’t even bring himself to thank the military by name, just “those who played a part” He also asked if he was naive, and said that time would tell.  I can save him the trouble of waiting.  Kember you are an arrogant, stupid, stupid man.  You and your fellow CPT non-Christians are so stupid on so many levels, I don’t have the time or text space to list them all.  Next time, maybe we’ll just let your terrorist friends remove the problem at its source: your frickin empty skull. Too each and every member of your moronic team I say: FUCK OFF, ASSHOLES!  Now drop dead, and go to the hell so richly deserve.

    1. If I sit in a church and pray for the hungry to be fed and the oppressed to be liberated, a whole bunch of nothing happens. That is why the Creator gave us the brave men and women who put themselves in harm’s way for us EVERY DAMN DAY. They are instruments for rescuing those who are weaker…and I am truly thankful for them.
