Uh huh

Just watched, on On The Record on Fox, Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig's interview.

One moment stuck in my mind. When Olaf Wiig was separated and got into a 'conversation' with one of his captors. Amidst talk of how Steve was really a CIA or FBI spy, they explored the concept of Islam. His interrogator at one point expressed regret that the West has not converted to Islam because then all would be at peace. Right. Blood money, women as chattel, killing women, killing for honor, etc. Really great religion to have rule the Earth.

I would much prefer to give the world a Coke and teach it to sing in perfect harmony.

I thought it was interesting that they didn't really talk about the videos other than to say they really didn't want to make them because they thought of the Iraqi videos of the beheadings.

It was a little telling that Steve Centannit used the term "Palestine".

You know when the terrorist say "convert to Islam or die" they really need to be more specific.

If you convert to the wrong sect (one other than the one who kidnapped you) you are still subject to the death penalty.

If everyone in the world coverted to Islam on Thursday, we'd have a bloodbath of sectarian violence on Friday.

Anna, well Steve just got sprung so it might take him awhile to reorient himself.

I know Mike, one just has to look for the Hidden Iman and the Shia, partisans of Ali. The Sunnah. Then there are the sufi and the dervishes. Makes the Reformation/Counter-Reformation seem tame.
