'Peace' Activists Defend Terrorists

In typical leftist fashion, Christian Peacemaker Teams, the group to which the recent abductees in Iraq belong, blamed America rather than the hostage takers for their member’s abductions.

A peace group blamed the United States and Britain for the abduction of four activists shown in an insurgent video, saying the kidnapping was the direct result of the occupation of Iraq.

The workers, the group said, were working against the occupation of Iraq.

We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. government due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people,” the group said.

“We are some of the few internationals left in Iraq who are telling the truth about what is happening to the Iraqi people,”

Perhaps they don’t read news, as the media and the majority of the American Left have been towing that line for quite a while now. (See Cindy Sheehan)

And let’s be clear on who these folks are. They are not ‘peace’ activists. They are political activists.

The left has long blamed the right for twisting religion to suit its goals. Well, take a look at this site. And all the while, they spend their energy defending fanatics and terrorists that make Jim Jones look like a moderate.

Check out the failed ‘Adopt-a-Detainee Campaign’. I find that particular item to be hilarious.

Slapped in the face with reality, these folks defend the murderers and assail the United States, along with Israel, Britain and various others who don’t subscribe to their ‘roll over and die’ philosophy.
