Kidnapped U.S. Journalist in New Videotape

"CAIRO, Egypt — The U.S. journalist Jill Carroll, weeping and veiled,
appeared on a new videotape aired Monday by Al-Jazeera... At one point,
Carroll's cracking voice can be heard from behind the newsreader's voice. All
that can be heard is Carroll saying, " ... hope for the families ..." Carroll, a
freelance reporter for the Christian Science Monitor, was seized Jan. 7 by the
previously unknown Revenge Brigades, which threatened to kill her unless all
women prisoners were released. Al-Jazeera did not report any deadline or threat
to kill her Monday."

Maybe I'm wrong in this, but I feel absolutely no "Christian love" for her captors. They are sick, evil people who need to see Justice, and soon. Anyone who would do something like that is a despicable sub-human being.

As far as Jill is concerned, I can only hope and pray that she somehow comes home, but I don't think that's very likely. Animals like her kidnappers rarely show any compassion.
