  • they probably assumed that by getting this guy
    back they would win "brownie" points
    with the intl community, realizing, that they rely
    on international aid for almost all sectors of
    life there, conveniently hoping that people would
    forget the few hundred folks that were killed a
    few weeks back, some in front of their family's
    and some doing concrete swan dives. oh well, i
    hope tehran gives them as much for humanitarian
    aid as they do for military. so More..

    There were a lot of people in the World Trade Center who were unarmed before being killed by Muslims. How about Daniel Pearle? How about any one of the THOUSANDS of innocent civilians killed in Iraq every week by their fellow Muslims?"

  • Good news for all sides i agree, i was worried that they would kill him, he was just doing his job, however biased that job was, maybe he will go back to work covering global warming and its effects on ice cream for the bbc, their other pet peeve Global warming is actively being caused by the burning of fossil fuels. You have obviously read nothing the environmental scientists have been saying since the 1970s. H More..

  • I've no idea what negotiations have taken place to secure Johnston's release, but I don't envy the poor bastards assigned the duty of ensuring it. We're talking about a people who's nearest thing to a local election campaign is a fucking turf war.

  • BBC may have bias, but it isn't as obvious as Fox News. I mean I'm conservative, but those guys are a little crazy for me. Yelling at people and then hanging up on them isn't an actual debate tactic. Anyway, while its great that they let him go, I always thought they would, just because BBC is usually the only ones who even do some sort of report on the Palestinians...well other than Al-Jazeera, which is as biased as Fox News.

  • How funny :) Yes, in fact there is a reference to Isalm on that wiki page, and that is Arab ruled after Byzantine ruled. So my point is if Palestine wants her recognition as a state, this was recognized in UN 1947 charter. But Arafat refused it because he wanted to see Israel wiped off the map. Oh, how wrong he was. I am not talking about Islam or religions. I am talking about the history. The Phoenicians established the first civilization in Palestine and they are the a More..
