      Beth’s emotional testimony was very inspirational and heart wrenching. Even Robert Schuller was choked up. Seen by millions of people around the world, we can only hope and pray that somebody will come forward to help solve this tragedy. Aruba was mentioned several times by both Beth and Rev. Schuller which cannot be good news for the island and its tourism. Hopefully, the audience will seek out and demand answers from those who know the truth. A standing ovation and show of support was tear jerking. Beth is a very courageous and strong lady. Let’s pray that this case will not be closed.

      it was a beautiful and memorable testimony of faith. i actually feel pity for the posters at fob and refugees who are all ready making fun of beth and trying to demean her testimony and faith. i assume most of these people are either arubans or timeshare owners on the island. who, in their right mind, would want to spend their vacations rubbing elbows with people this heartless and cruel? and who would want to trust the govt. and a.l.e. to help you when you’re in need of justice and a local is also involved.?

    3. Allan K on October 22nd, 2006 4:32 pm

      I am in total agreement with above posters. FOB posters have real personal problems to say the least, heartless and souless.

    4. GRETA mal on October 22nd, 2006 5:36 pm

      It was a very emotional testimony but IMO it will not help solve this crime . IMO the cover-up is COMPLETE !!


      SM:   How would you know?   Did you help cover it up? Your trollish remarks are getting very tiring to me (klaasend)

    5. WebSurfer on October 22nd, 2006 5:56 pm

      It was a very moving interview that brought tears to the eyes of most caring people. I too checked RU and FOB to see how they would manage to twist such an emotional testimony given by Beth. As I presumed, both sites were hard at work doing just that. At least we can be assured these soulless people will have a miserable eternity to re-think their words.

    6. GRETA mal on October 22nd, 2006 5:59 pm

      klass, I don’t know. NOBODY knows. We ALL put down our OPINIONS. This was my OPINION. Take a chill pill. Luv Ya Greta !!!!!!!!!


      SM:Â   Maybe I’m just getting tired of your same old opinions over and over again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (klaasend) ;)

    7. GRETA mal on October 22nd, 2006 6:16 pm

      klass, Do you ever read carpe’s post. SAME thing over and over. The murdering raping van der sloots. Do you ever get tired of that ????


      SM:   None of your business.   Just a reminder, I hold the key 90% of the time whether your post goes through or not.   Don’t test me. (klaasend)

    8. nychic on October 22nd, 2006 6:21 pm

      how great is it when the first thing you see
      is kelmal being scolded by Klaas ???

      All I can say about my questions to the
      manager of Carlos O’Briens in PV is that
      his English became very bad when I mentioned
      “Natalee Holloway” and he added that he had
      only been there for 15 days !!! (yeah, right)
      He became extremely nervous and repeatedly asked if everything was ok ??
      Same thing with other employees (when normally their
      English is very good at Grupo Andersen bars)
      They have obviously been coached not to talk !
      I immediately convinced our entire group to leave !


      Beth is an inspiration and everywhere you go people are well aware of what happened in Aruba – I only had to
      set one guy straight about Natalee’s character – but
      he apologized after he learned more facts -

      and that is why Beth’s interviews are so important !

    9. GRETA mal on October 22nd, 2006 6:27 pm

      nychic, HOW was your trip ??? Did you like it as much as the caribbean ???? Why would you even go into CARLOS ????

    10. nychic on October 22nd, 2006 6:39 pm

      After what happened in Aruba
      I said I would never go to
      any Grupo Andersen establishment
      I just wanted to know what their
      response would be to questions about Natalee
      and if people were ordering shots or wanting to
      watch when their drinks were made
      or ordering beer and demanding that
      they open it themselves ???

      It was NOT nearly as crowded as usual
      and the other places were alot more fun -

      As I said before kelmal – I will go just about
      anywhere in Mexico and the Caribbean

    11. Carpe Noctem on October 22nd, 2006 6:46 pm

      WB nychic!

    12. GRETA mal on October 22nd, 2006 7:03 pm

      nychic, Yea me too. I just try to point out that alot of these places are just as dangerous as Aruba. You just have to be very careful. I LOVE Mexico but I have heard alot of stories about Mexico. You have to use your “STREET SMARTS” !!!

    13. nychic on October 22nd, 2006 7:16 pm

      In Natalee’s Case
      It Was Not The Place That Was Dangerous
      It Was The People In That Place !
      She Was Too Trusting and Was Blind-sighted !
      Once She Took That Shot – She Did Not Have A Shot !

    14. Richard on October 22nd, 2006 7:19 pm

      NYChic, I hope that at least you will avoid Curacao, remembering what happened (and may still be) to Amy Bradley there. Beth originally asked people to avoid not only Aruba but all the Netherlands Antilles islands.

      Anyway, I hope you’ll expound on your trip … what you saw, whether anyone asked YOU what Americans are thinking about Aruba and Natalee, whether there was any sign of continuing interest, and just about anything else that you choose to impart.

      And I hope you get back safely!

    15. Richard on October 22nd, 2006 7:34 pm

      Just listened to her talk … anyone who can scoff or sneer at Beth Twitty after hearing that is lower than the scum of Aruba. They are not worth the attention of civilized or decent people. Enough said!

      It’s worth noting that she had good things to say about the Dutch, and seemed to hope that they might yet come through. You would think the arrogant animals that run Aruba would realize where they stand in the world … actually, they do not stand, they are abased, or should be.

    16. GRETA mal on October 22nd, 2006 7:41 pm

      richard post#15, Most islands in the caribbean have had an Amy Bradley incident. If you go to ANY of these islands you just have to be VERY CAREFUL, use your street smarts, and the BUDDY SYSTEM !!!

    18. GRETA mal on October 22nd, 2006 7:49 pm

      richard, I have to agree with you. Bethy was GREAT !!!!!!!!!!

    19. nychic on October 22nd, 2006 7:50 pm

      Richard -

      When I Think of “The Netherlands”
      Trust Me – I Do Not Think Of Fun !
      I Have Absolutely No Desire To Visit !

      As far as Curacao – was there once
      off the cruise ship – was not impressed
      the locals were not friendly and it was
      very “Euro”
      (only good thing was the snorkeling and
      there are lots of other places for that)

      I bring up Natalee in so many conversations
      just to see what kind of response I get -
      No Doubt – Everyone has at least heard
      about Natalee and The Word “Aruba” has
      become associated with this crime whether
      they like it or not ! The word is certainly out -

    20. tex on October 22nd, 2006 8:10 pm

      aruba is going down, down, down along with the neanderthal netherlands.

    21. Sic&Tired of *it* on October 22nd, 2006 8:11 pm

      Why is this goon gretamal allowed to hijack this board and disrespect Natalee and her supports this way, and with a wink too.

    22. Maggie on October 22nd, 2006 8:24 pm

      I recorded it and watched it today. Was hard to keep a dry eye during her talk.

    23. IndyDan on October 22nd, 2006 8:29 pm

      Sic&Tired: Like I’ve said before many times, it’s no different than SPAM email. It’s so invasive, pervasive and so unwanted but the spammers seem to rejoice in their irritation.
      I understand SM wanting to keep an open forum to all but this troll is nothing but a drain to the free exchange of ideas. It’s high time they shut off this agitator, it no longer adds anything to the discussion.
      You said it perfectly – this troll does nothing but hijack this board and disrepect Natalee and her family.


      SM:   Believe it or not most of Gretamal’s posts are deleted, at least when I’m on watch.   She is a troll, no doubt. (klaasend)

    24. Richard on October 22nd, 2006 8:35 pm

      Thanks, NYChic. I’m curious … does anyone there reflect upon how the American view of Aruba has come to be shaped, in large part, by Natalee?

      In other words, I guess I’m asking if anyone is aware that their own government’s action or inaction is what has led to the boycott Aruba sentiment.

      If so, does anyone seem to have an idea on what to do? Or don’t they care?

    25. Richard on October 22nd, 2006 8:35 pm

      To a certain poster … the Amy Bradley tragedy is not an “incident.” End of comment.

    26. chris on October 22nd, 2006 9:52 pm

      If that child continues to call Beth BETHY, I’ll find him and make him write I AM AN IDIOT 1000 times.
      To show such little respect is yet another sign of his lack of any kind of decency…….chris again

    27. mayan_moons on October 22nd, 2006 9:54 pm

      Just saw Megyn on The Line Up talking to Dave, she’s one tough cookie but ya could tell she was disgusted with aruba & acknowledged twice that Natalee’s story has rivetted the nation.

      Aruba’s gonna do what aruba’s gonna do BUT nothing can stop us from discouraging everyone especially Americans from going to 3rd world crack shack of an island

    28. jackson80 on October 22nd, 2006 9:56 pm

      look as Joran, the godless wonder, as compared to Beth Twitty………….

    29. pcot on October 22nd, 2006 10:04 pm

      I cried watching Beth Twitty today. I will never forget her story and pray that someday she will have answers for what happened to her daughter Natalee.

    30. Kate on October 22nd, 2006 10:22 pm

      NOW…even the remotest corners of the world have heard Natalee’s name. Those who have never heard the story now know that something terrible happened in Aruba, and will, out of curiosity, google for more information.

      Beth was once again an amazing presence, as she stood with Robert Schuller, testifying to her faith in God. Her emotional and physical strengths are such an inspiration.

      We can hope that Arubans will draw from the same inner strengths to come together and demand justice for Natalee, and everyone else who has been victimized on Aruba!

    31. Minnesota Dad on October 22nd, 2006 10:35 pm

      Gretamel/Katamel, etc…….

      I can fully understand the posts eminated from this person. They won’t make me go away or continue to discourage people from going to Aruba.

      The cover-up is complete. We all know it. We all know who did it. We all know when it was done. We all know when it was confessed to.

      We all know that key evidence was either discarded (i.e. belt, bloody mattress, bones, etc.), tampered with (blood from Kalpoe car), or that the main crime scene was never searched (Paulus and Anita’s homestead).

      We all know that Aruban Law Enforcement intentionally arrested two blacks stooges to pin the crime, recovered the body, disposed of the body, failed to interrogate key perpetrators…or the one’s they did interview Maxwell Smart could have interrogated better, and failed to adequately develop timelines based on statements (the timelines being all screwed up should be hint number one that they are pulling a fast one on us).

      Gretamel may be obnoxious, but is stating the obvious….

      The Dutch have been on the island for a month. They have not begun the process of VOIDING judgements made by a black robed buddy of Paulus in order to insulate and distance him from the crime.

      It is this non-action alone that is glaring proof that the Dutch are not in Aruba to wrap this case up and arrest the perps….but to try to give some sort of ‘credibility’ to the answer that she “just vanished” and that there is no evidence/trace of her.

      It is a Hail Mary. Tourism is destroyed. Aruba thinks that with the stamp of Dutch Investigators everything will be good again.

      Dream on Aruba….you are toast. You need to do the right thing…but we all know it will bring down members of your LE, the Judicial Branch, and the Legislative Branches of your government for aiding & abetting this crime and cover-up.

      You don’t have the courage….and we won’t be visiting. md

    32. Mortella on October 22nd, 2006 11:01 pm

      People who do not respect the faith of others, even if they are so shallow as to have no faith themselves, have no respect for anything. Dr. Robert Schuller is a revered and loved spiritual leader to literally millions around the world and it just might behoove some to show a little respect even if they have to fake it.

      A person who is not moved by that interview and blessing bestowed on Beth has lost much of what makes us human and separates us from the lower life forms.

      The same would apply to referring to Beth Twitty as Bethy in this context or posting about a “box of chum” since we all know the reference to Saddam’s trial on that.

      At times this almost looks like a proverbial battle between Good and Evil and I do think on some level that is exactly what it is. Many things do work out to be just that in the long run. With the statements we have seen, any failure of the Dutch to see the situation as written between the lines and the lies will be nothing more than a glaring disregard for justice on the same level as Aruba. Let’s hope they are not nearly as foolish as their little island buddy.

    33. nychic on October 22nd, 2006 11:56 pm

      Richard -

      I have not been in Aruba since June 2005 -
      Although I would love to have the opportunity
      to question a few select citizens…

      The Carlos O’Briens I mentioned was in Puerto Vallarta

      There are several establishments owned by one family
      Grupo Andersen : Carlos n Charlies, Carlos O’Briens
      Senor Frogs, El Shrimp Bucket

      There has always been a question as to whether the
      bartender at CnC’s was aware or helped to add something
      to the shot of 151 Rum that Joran bought for Natalee ??

      CnC’s Aruba was very quick to make a public statement
      following Natalee’s disappearance and also contributed
      to the reward fund – which makes one wonder why they
      were trying to cover their asses and protect the business -

    34. glad2bAmerican on October 23rd, 2006 1:07 am

      Beth Twitty was very inspirational about her faith.
      She has never waivered about her beliefs.
      Some disbelievers need to listen up on plain and simple faith.

    35. Nederlander on October 23rd, 2006 1:10 am

      A few weeks ago the regulars here were happy that the Dutch arrived on this website after the TV show she did in Holland. Now the Dutch are called Neanderthalers and some other names… And voicing an opinion that’s not the moderator’s seems not allowed.

      Then what’s the point of having a Comments section? If you want the Dutch ‘to be on your side’ then be open minded at least. That way you will get more things and cooperation accomplished then now.

      Anyway, just my 2 cents.


      SM:Â   The only comments that get deleted are made by trolls or people with foul mouths (klaasend)

      Mortella i could not agree with you more that its on the battle between good & evil. I agree even more that those on Aruba have lost what it is to be human, who could deny that when they come here talking about chum.

      PART II OF LINEUP INTERVIEW (courtesy Andie of BFN):

      THE LINE UP – October 22, 2006 – TRANSCRIPT (PART TWO) (VERBATIM)


      MEGYN: You know, let me ask you the same question I just finished up with David. Do you believe that these charges might actually be cleared…THESE SUSPECTS MIGHT OFFICIALLY BE CLEARED IN THIS CASE ON NOVEMBER 1ST, WHEN THE DUTCH AUTHORITIES ARE TAKING A FRESH LOOK AT IT; AND HOPEFULLY, THE INVESTIGATION IS IN A WAY STARTING ANEW?

      DAVE: Yeah, he mentioned something about things…”funny that things happened.”

      IT IS VERY COINCIDENTAL THAT THEY ARE SETTING DATES TO GET DISMISSED, JUST WHEN THE DUTCH ARE COMING IN AND INVESTIGATING. It is quite coincidental. Alot of things have been coincidental in this case, by the way.

      MEGYN: I mean, do you…AT THIS POINT I GOT TO IMAGINE THAT YOU HAVE NEXT TO NO, OR NO FAITH IN THE ARUBA COURTS. What do you expect to happen, Dave? I mean, what do you think the smart money is on?

      DAVE: Well, I would hope that they would not allow them to be freed. BUT, you know, if I was banking on it…based on what’s happened in the past…it’s a possibility that they will be released.

      MEGYN: Dave, is anything happening, as far as you know, in the case? I mean, as I just mentioned…and, as you know…THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN RIVETED TO NATALEE’S DISAPPEARANCE FOR OVER A YEAR AND A HALF NOW.

      There were nightly updates on this case for so long. Now, it has sort of fallen by the wayside a bit…in terms of public eye. Are you still on this case day to day, in terms of (leading or leaving?) and the investigation, or not so much anymore?

      DAVE: OH, IT STAYS ON YOUR MIND EVERYDAY. You are always constantly thinking, you know, WHAT HAPPENED. Your daughter went to Aruba for a four day vacation, and all of a sudden she disappears; and no one seems to know what happened.


      MEGYN: Yeah…I mean, Dave, do you…I know you believe that they had something to do with Natalee’s disappearance. What do you think happened?

      DAVE: You know, there are alot of different theories out there, Megyn. You know, I just really don’t know, because I don’t have all the investigative material that, you know, the police have.

      There are alot of theories that, you know, that THESE THREE SUSPECTS are directly involved; and, you know, of course, there are some other theories out there. AND I remiss if I was to give that out.

      MEGYN: RIGHT. Well, hopefully time will tell, Dave. Thank you so much.

      Hey Richard!

      You speak of Amy often & i just wanna tell you that i thought of Amy immediately when news broke about Natalee. That she could be on her own balcony with her family so close & just *gone*, its so bizarre. On some level i think as you do that somehow the cases are related.

    39. Arubaanse on October 23rd, 2006 1:46 am

      It’s so heartbreaking to see this, especially the part where she explained when she got out of the taxi and started walking on the road to the Alto Vista Chapel, where you have all the crosses. Beth is an amazing woman.

      To #28 Jackson80,

      How are you? Glad 2 see you around:)

    40. mayan_moons on October 23rd, 2006 2:10 am

      Soo Nederlander,

      You think we need to keep an open mind when a dutchboy comes here to talk of chumming the waters when speaking of what happened to Natalee?

      Nevermind ya don’t need to answer you pathetic pos.

      Mayan Moons (#38) … Too bad I can’t post here the email that Mrs. Bradley and I exchanged when first I heard about Natalee. We had the same thoughts; you can imagine what they were.

      Actually, Amy was last seen going up to the ship’s disco (which was closed at the time) in the company of a member of the ship’s band. “Yellow” was then seen by a passenger to be bringing Amy one drink which he got from a bartender.

      This was on the upper level of the disco; nobody else was around. He then turned the music up very loud. The passenger, who was with crew members on a lower bar, lost interest.

      Some fifteen minutes later, Yellow was seen leaving the disco … without Amy.

      It’s important to note that just about then, the cruise ship had docked at Curacao. It was NOT out at sea, it was docked. It had just docked.

      It’s also important, perhaps, to note that from that upper disco, there is a freight elevator that connects with all parts of the ship, including the freight decks below where no passengers go.

      And it’s also important, perhaps, to note that later on, when all the Bradleys were out of the cabin looking around the ship, Yellow approached Amy’s brother, Brad, and said he was sorry for what had happened to Amy.

      This comment was made BEFORE any announcement had been made.

      Draw your own conclusions. And with this in the back of my mind, I have had certain preconceptions about what happened to Natalee … and still there is no sign of her.

    43. Nederlander on October 23rd, 2006 7:42 am

      Mayan_Moons, you just proved my point. Thank you.

    46. hammer on October 23rd, 2006 9:57 am



      More like “COMPLETELY SCREWED UP”. The Natalee Holloway case, and Aruba’s disastrous management of it, has become the textbook chapter on “what NOT to do.” Any sensate person who has reviewed the record in detail, and reviewed Aruba’s treatment of the HT Family, and Aruba’s lack of criminal prosecutorial verve, is well aware that something is seriously amiss…NAMELY, that Aruban authorities are complicit in criminal activity relating to cover-up, failure to perform, conspiracy, malfeasance, deriliction of duty, and a list that continues which is too long to catalog here.

      Even today, 18 months after Natalee missed her flight home, obvious crimes committed by 2 of the 3 prime suspects remain unprosecuted: deepak and satish Kalpoe EACH commmitted perjury by attesting to and signing an INTENTIONALLY FALSE witness statement, which opens them both to the charges of perjury, conspiracy to commit perjury, obstruction of justice during a murder investigation and contempt of court.

      The “COMPLETE COVER-UP” was so well executed, that Aruba walked straight into an American consumer boycott re: tourism, a boycott backed and endorsed by US State Governors and other officials, drew the scrutiny of the US Secretary of State, and has resulted in Aruba being the “poster child” for cover-up, duplicity, anti-Americanism, and boorishness, no to mention spawning efforts at educating children and teens about their personal safety when traveling, as predators are likely watching them.

      Nice job on that “COMPLETE COVER-UP.” If the cover-up was so “complete” — we all would have gone home to light candles on June 4, 2005, and the name Natalee Holloway would have faded from public view.

      Instead, Aruban tourism is cratering, Dutch television personalities are running TV shows about the case, Aruba is growing as the butt of talk show jokes about double dealing and crime, HT Family continues to get respectful airtime from concerned cable TV hosts, and the 3 prime suspects and their families remain ostracized and scorned in their own neighborhoods.

      Yep, the “COVER-UP IS COMPLETE”.

      and a dig was scheduled in the future.

      3 – THAT’S THREE – as in 1,2,3 MONTHS

      POSSIBLE EVIDENCE MIGHT BE. ( in case they
      might want to move it – ahead of the dig? )


      It took roughly 3 more months before they even lifted
      a finger to execute that important dig.

      I truely was blessed just by listening to MRS. BETH HOLLOWAY/TWITTY. NATALEES MOM.The only ones that were not affected by her words are full of EVIL. She is an inspiration to us all. God does hold Natalee in his arms and no matter where she is I believe that. Can you imagine for one horrible minute living without FAITH? and HOPE? and LOVE. All of us good ppl here that CARE,feel sorry for the trolls that cannot feel that. How sad is there existance on earth? PITY them for they have no soul.I for one am so proud of Beth, and what she is doing for Natalee and others. God has blessed her, and where ever Natalee is, she knows she has the best MOTHER in the world.

    52. Weda on October 23rd, 2006 10:36 am

      God Bless you Beth!

      I refuse to give up hope for NAtalee.

      vicki, Post # 51, I agree with you 1000%. She is an inspiration to ALL of us. It has been a long time since I cried so hard !!

    54. vicki on October 23rd, 2006 10:51 am

      You know, I was driving around town and saw all of the banners that they have up for the elections… Why not get some to say BOYCOTT ARUBA. So i did some research and guess what the banners are not that much money. For a 18×24 2 sided,2 color is 4.00@100 pieces. Go to and tell me what you all think. I think its alot cheaper than 4×2 piece of wood and it catches the eye.

    55. Carpe Noctem on October 23rd, 2006 10:52 am

      Ditto for me. God bless ya Beth!

      Don’t stop, and ya rock rock on…

      You are doing a lot of good.

      ( and this too shall soon pass )

      I keep all of yas in my prayers,

    58. Arubaanse on October 23rd, 2006 11:49 am

      Hey Klaasend,

      How are you? I got an email from someone named Kees van der spek back and he asked me if I knew the suspects or his friends and if i can help him find jorans friends. He also asked me if I was in Aruba when Natalee disappeared.

    59. Arubaanse on October 23rd, 2006 12:03 pm

      I just want to say something to some of you posters here. It’s not fair that you guys say or think that every poster that post something bad or say something against Beth and Natalee, is from Aruba.
      Like Amsterdamned, johnm and many others…you guys immediately think they are from Aruba. I have met alot of americans that spoke bad about Beth and I also read on other blogs from few american posters and they also trash Natalee and Beths name, which is unacceptable!! It’s a disgrace to see an american say trashing things about his fellow american. So, not everybody that post trashing things about Beth, comes from Aruba.

      Thank you,


    60. nychic on October 23rd, 2006 12:15 pm

      Hey Arubaanse -

      Just wondering if there is any way you can
      confirm if Joran is actually registered this
      year at the Arnhem Business School ??

      I have this feeling that he is not ?

      btw – did Kees say which friends he was looking for ?

    61. WebSurfer on October 23rd, 2006 12:16 pm


      What did you tell the guy?

    62. Arubaanse on October 23rd, 2006 12:36 pm

      Kees is looking for his CnC’s friends.
      I saw Steve Croes only once but I never spoke to him. The same thing with the Kalpoe brothers. Only saw them once or twice but never spoke to them. So I told him that I have seen them but never spoke to them. My brother knew Steve Croes, so I gave him my brothers email too. I also have Joran’s real myspace but that’s it.

    63. Arubaanse on October 23rd, 2006 12:42 pm


      An aruban friend of mine that study at the university of Utrecht said that she knows a guy that goes to that school and the guy told her that he saw or spoke to Joran at his school but if Joran is still in school, that is another quetion. I really don’t know.

    64. WebSurfer on October 23rd, 2006 12:47 pm

      From Lazlo at RU:

      De Vries team seems to have made up their mind.

      J2K, that is my conclusion.


    65. GretaMAL on October 23rd, 2006 12:48 pm

      Aruba post # 59, I am from MICHIGAN and proud of it. I NEVER say anything BAD about “BETH” !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    66. GretaMAL on October 23rd, 2006 1:00 pm

      Aruba post #59: As a matter of fact I never say anything BAD about ANYBODY. Maybe that is why people dislike me !!!!!!!!!!!!

    67. Sharon Chicago on October 23rd, 2006 1:02 pm

      Beth, keep up the good work. If the guilty Aruban suspects are not brought to accountability…. Your words spoken to the thousands of American tourist each year will bring the Aruban government to their knees….

      They better wake up and decide not to cover up the crime!!

    68. Arubaanse on October 23rd, 2006 1:08 pm

      :) Gretamal,

      I didn’t say you are from Aruba and I didn’t say you said bad things about Beth. Relaxxx, just chill :P

      You are from Michigan?? WOW, I have friends there, they invited me to go there this year. They come to Aruba every year and they always visit us but I think they are boycotting Aruba this year because they send us an email to ask us to come and visit them in Michigan because they wont come to Aruba this year. I told them I am in the Netherlands for school now and that i can’t come. I think my parents are planning to go in Dec but no sure. But they are very nice people.

    69. vicki on October 23rd, 2006 1:59 pm

      arubaanse, please dont believe that idiot#65. He is a liar and speaks bad of Beth all the time. Klass hopefully will ban the troll soon.

    70. GretaMAL on October 23rd, 2006 3:03 pm

      vicki, I NEVER said anything BAD about “BETH” !!!! Klass would never ban me. She loves me !!!

      SM:   I don’t have the ability to ban anyone, that is up to Red and Tom.  No, I don’t love you.   I have very little patience for trolls (klaasend)

    71. Amsterdamned on October 23rd, 2006 3:21 pm

      SM; Why did you delete my post, because I have some criticism about Ms Twitty?


      SM:   Yes as a matter of fact.   This is not your blog.   If we don’t want mean spirited posts about the mother of a missing person whether it be in the case or any other, those posts can be deleted.   I deleted it myself.   Try posting again and I’ll let sit and wait until Red or Tom can make the decision. (klaasend)

    72. Amsterdamned on October 23rd, 2006 3:26 pm


      (spoken as a true catholic)


      SM: Will address  your comment in a bit.  Hardly spoken as a true catholic, more like a troll.

      If you are a true Christan as you profess  then you would know that we are all  flawed, that is why your religion has confession.

    75. Maggie on October 23rd, 2006 4:44 pm

      I compare the ones who talk negative towards a mother and her missing/killed daugther to the ones who don’t like people of color, gay people, etc. small minded. Truth of the matter is everyone of us at some time have been in the same position to become a victim of a crime just like Natalee. My mid 30′s gym teacher, in high school, went out on a date and the guy drugged her, she became ill in the restaurant and had to be taken to the hospital. Probably saved her life. Just when you think it won’t or can’t happen to you, it hits you in the face. I’m sure all of these families with missing/murdered children watched the news and saw cases like these and said this can never happen to me etc. Wrong! I question anyone who can read the transcripts and look at the behaviour of Paulus, Joran, Deepak, Satish and Steve Croes and think this is normal behaviour for people who are innocent and wanted to help find Natalee. They’ve lied and obstructed every chance they could and it seems the ALE was playing the orchestra for them. Yet, the same people would question a mother and father looking for their daughter, they have raised for 18 years, who did nothing to harm anyone.

      Paulus calls and says they are here about a missing girl and Joran and Deepak says oh let’s make up lies. Guilty conscience. Someone calls me about the person I was with the night before who’s missing I’m going to be truthful and offer to help anyway I can, not go into criminal behaviour immediately, unless I’m guilty of wrong doing. They Know what they did. They can’t see that chit,unless there is some to see and Joran is not going to get 15 years for leaving Natalee at the beach.

    76. GretaMAL on October 23rd, 2006 5:05 pm

    79. Carpe Noctem on October 23rd, 2006 5:30 pm

      Hey Amster-Sloot,

      What is the deal? Didn’t you get enough
      of the ACID & HATE out of your system BY helping
      your demon spawn rape and kill A defenseless
      teenage girl, (NAT) and then drop her off near
      the vicinity of the MARRIOTT? (dead) imho


      Why so mean?


      Let me TELL YOU something, and &
      you better hear me when I say it:


      You are not even qualified and decent enough
      to be the effin TRASH-STEP & FETCH IT BOY
      in the Holloway/Twitty households…

      You sawed off, two-bit, woman hating
      needle dick!

      There’s a big difference in having a different POV.
      like Arubaanse, for instance. She drives her points
      home VERY WELL without attacking the
      family of the VICTIM.

      You aren’t just going for the POV. You are also
      shooting for ‘HATING ON THEM’ There’s
      a big difference. You should check
      that attitude at the door, before
      someone volunteers to help
      you out with it as a public

      Justice 4 Natalee Holloway

      Murdered by the gangraping
      Van der Sloots and Kalpoes

      #69 vicki: way back when it posted under the nic of johnm, it said flat out that it hated Beth Twitty. Now to be a little more ‘acceptable’ it changed it’s nic and now just disrepects Beth by twisting her name a little.

    84. nychic on October 23rd, 2006 9:25 pm

      I Just Hate To See Those Who
      Really Care About Natalee’s Case
      To Let Something Like kelmal stress
      them out -

      Hopefully SM Is Taking Notice Of
      This And Possibly Can Provide Clarification
      On How Posting In The Comment Section
      On The Front Page Is Separate From
      The More Private Discussion Forum -

      However, The Way It Is Currently Set Up
      Is “Genius” IMO – As It Encourages
      Anonymous Posters To Verbalize Opinions
      They Normally May Not If Registration Was Required-
      But Also Allows Those Who Want To Avoid The
      Evil Ones – Refuge In The “Cozy Cage”


      as someone once said:

      If You Can’t Take The Heat
      Don’t Post On The Front Page
      Post In The Forum


      SM:   I’m heavily editing or sending most of Kelmal/Gretamal’s posts to the spam folder where they belong ;) .   What you are seeing is probably 50% or less than what she is posting.   Imagine how irritating it is me me, lol :)    (klaasend)

    85. nychic on October 23rd, 2006 9:38 pm


      never good to lose 1st game on your home turf
      Tigers will be struggling to come back in St. Louis
      no pine tar – just dirt !

    86. nychic on October 23rd, 2006 9:43 pm

      klaas -

      It does not bother me at all -
      I just hope others will not get too frustrated
      and stop posting – and remember that
      ******This is For Natalee********

      I am sure that kelmal is only a small part of
      the “irritation” you see on a daily basis -
      Honestly – Klaas – I don’t know how you do it !!!

    87. Sic&Tired of *it* on October 23rd, 2006 11:13 pm

      Its not about “can’t take the heat….get out of the kitchen”, when every other comment is the troll(s) on the front page with backhanded sarcastic drool, hows a new reader to know this isn’t just another hate site. When that thing is every other post its hijacked. thats all.

    88. dennisintn on October 23rd, 2006 11:55 pm

      #87, you’re right s&t, especially about the new readers.

    89. nychic on October 24th, 2006 12:37 am

      #87 & 88

      That Is Precisely The Point I Was Attempting
      To Make –

      There Are So Many Dedicated Posters Who Have
      Spent Countless Hours On This Case -
      This Is Evident Not Only On The Front Page
      But Also In The Discussion Forum
      Just Go To The Top Of This Page and
      Click On “Forum” then “Natalee Holloway”
      The Research Some Have Performed Is Just
      Truly Amazing -

      I Think The FP of SM Was Designed To Encourage
      Opposing Views –
      (not that I feel I can in any way speak on behalf of SM)
      I Was Just Hoping That Those Views Would Not Discourage
      Someone From Making A Statement That Could Be
      Utilized In Helping Beth & Dave In The Long Run -

      #90: a christian can go to church on sunday and slit your throat on monday. just because you say you are a christian does not make you special. would a real christian act like you ? i don’t think so.
      i think it was you who posted ( a different take on the natalee holloway case ) and klass had to edit it out. you poor misguided ( christian ) ?


      SM: Actually Dave, Red edited it out. Yes it was misguided and there was no place for such a comment.


    93. GretaMAL on October 24th, 2006 11:51 am

      davey, A TRUE Christian forgives his enemies. Like the amish who forgave the crazy gunman who shot their children. If you seek revenge on your enemies , IMO you are NOT a true Christian !!

    94. Amsterdamned on October 24th, 2006 12:51 pm

      For sure Dr schuller is praying for Natalee and his family as well for Joran and his family, that is the true power of the hour of power: be a true christian.

    95. GretaMAL on October 24th, 2006 1:28 pm

      amster & chris, I agre 100% !!!!!!!!!!

    96. Amsterdamned on October 24th, 2006 2:18 pm

      Gretamal I always agree 100 %with you (hihihi). Ok serious now, what irritates me (and a lot of dutch citizens) about eg this website, I support the goal “Justice for Natalee” (The one way direction context in general about the Natalee case)Ms Twiity, Dr Phill, Fox News, The governor of Alabama etc that there is only one thing possible and that is that JvdS and his friends are guilty.
      Of course it is your right to think so, but be reasonable and prove it. I see a very narrow mind vision with only one conclusion however with more than a year without prove.
      I think it is time to look not so narrow minded (spoiled energy) and the level become very low right now. Of course it is frustrated that there is no solutiom right now and that frustrates everybody but I think it is time to change strategy before it is to late.

    97. GretaMAL on October 24th, 2006 4:01 pm

      Amster, That is what I have been saying for OVER 1 year now. Sure it LOOKS like the 3 boys are guilty but WE have to prove it. Without proof this case is DEAD.

    98. Amsterdamned on October 24th, 2006 4:27 pm

      #97 you are right, and if the 3 boys are not guilty is everybody paying back the emotional and financial damage that has been caused (of course not, they dissappear like a thief in the night)? I think nobody’s realising that there can be a totally another scenario, and the slightest possibillity, I think is the reason to be more carefull about what you write, think or say

    99. chris on October 24th, 2006 5:56 pm

      Amster and Greta have found eachother. What a lovely pair.

    100. JusticeforNatalee on October 24th, 2006 8:21 pm


      At the very least, Joran and the Kalpoes know what happened to Natalee.

      I once received an e-mail from Clint van Zandt, FBI profiler.
      He said that the following facts point to J2K’s guilt:

      Natalee last seen with J2K
      J2K fabricating stories
      J2K still lying over a year later
      Joran’s stories don’t match with the Kalpoes
      Joran’s stories don’t match with his own

      Clint said, due to the above, it is very unlikely someone other than J2K is responsible.

    101. IndyDan on October 24th, 2006 8:46 pm

      #99 chris: ROTFLMAO – troll true love, isn’t it sweet? Hopefully they’ll start they’re own Blog and live happily alone in Troll Heaven stroking each other, and their need for attention.

    102. Carpe Noctem on October 24th, 2006 9:43 pm

      They did try other routes!

      Every other road let back to the murdering gangraping
      backstabbing Kalpoes and Van der Rapes.

      source: 48 HOURS CBS – GEROLD DOMPIG

      The 2 rabid families that drip hate, lies, and rabies
      from their venemous mouths.

      Look – were sick of the effin stuff-

      Those pieces of $hit should be hunted down and executed, if Aruba can’t find two gonads to rub together and have even something that resembles a trial.
      in my opinion.

      That is certainly what I hope for! That *IF* Aruba does in fact let them off the hook on 11/1/2006, that they are
      hunted down and have a bad accident… or possibly 4. -J4N-

      If these 3 perps are let go, there is something bad wrong.

      We need to get serious about intensifying the boycott.

      Red, since Gretamal is so gungho all the time, why not have him submit the first $ 100.00 to the cause right now.

      It would be nice of you to let us know if he indeed sent you a check…….chris

      Oh and YoYo and SLGloria
      Typing Out A “Wish” On An Open Forum
      Under An Anonymous Name
      Is NOT and Will NEVER Be Considered A Direct Threat !

      Here Is An “Example” Of A Direct Threat:

      Joran and Paulus Van der Sloot & Deepak and Satish Kalpoe
      “”I, (insert name) hereby declare that If I
      Should Ever Come Into Contact With Any Of

    108. mayan_moons on October 25th, 2006 2:54 am

      there’s a million ways to die……you’ll be jumping at every sound you hear. everyone you see will make you sob’s jittery.people trying to be your friend to the money or to sink a knife in your back.

      Thinking of Natalee’s last moments spent with you POS, the total fear she felt while being raped & what she felt when you punks just wanted to treat her like a subhuman. getting off on Natalee’s plea for her life. I know she begged you not to hurt her & you prolly laughed at her. I want to see the same happen to all those who hurt her.

    109. mayan_moons on October 25th, 2006 4:03 am

      I am a protector, everyone at times asks themselves what they would do if someone near was about to get hurt, you wonder if you’ll react in time to protect say a child even if it puts you at risk for getting hurt.

      I’ve had several of those times. One involving a child, well baby actually. Sophia is her name…..i was babysitting & after picking up Sophia’s brother & sister from school we headed in the house. The brother (4yrs) had earlier pulled a water hose across the driveway. I was holding the baby & tripped over the hose. Those split seconds between realizing i was falling i knew i had to protect Sophia’s head at all costs from hitting that concrete. I’m happy to tell you that Sophia wasn’t hurt at all….me? haha well i had 2 bloody knee’s & elbows & suprised i didn’t break my wrists and i cried. Not coz i was hurt but that i was able to protect the baby’s head. That baby was in my charge & my duty to protect. Not much different than Natalee & all visitors to the island are in you’re charge and its you’re duty to protect them. You invite them to come & ahould care for their safety. Enticing people to come to Aruba makes it Aruba’s responsibility to keep their word & ensure safety for all.

      This isn’t going to be very popular with some posters, I don’t think even wishing for vigilante justice is the way to go. God said “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay”.

      Let’s face it, if all the perps get away scot free, God can do a much better job of it than we can even imagine.

      #97 and #98…My friends and I spent most of last summer in Aruba looking for Natalee and/or what happened to Natalee. We are the people who found the tape showing J2K did NOT bring Natalee back to Holiday Inn. After giving a copy to ALE, J2K changed their story. Every time we uncovered anything about the case and gave the EVIDENCE to ALE, it got lost, or was not important. Joran even told the head master at the International School, something bad happened. So if all and I mean ALL evidence points to them and them only, we will have to continue to watch them, monitor them, and finally someone will tell. If someone else is guilty, which story do you believe from the J2K group? Why all the lies for PJ2K,and why does Dompig agree with us? I always considered the Dutch as intelligent people, so enlighten us as to what leads you to believe the PJ2K story, or better said: stories? ALE tried to keep the family totally in the dark during the whole process. That was to get more time to cover-up. So??? What can you tell us to make us think different. I am very open to suggestions and Gret, I ask you, prove us wrong. Gret, do you know something we do not know? You folks wouldn’t try to mislead us now, would you? As to the fate of Aruba, they put themselves in this position and they will have to pull themselves out of it. In the Southern portion of the USA, we say “don’t wee-wee on our backs and tell us it’s raining” Trying to keep it clean here.

      “these three are guilty” by Dompig

      “Something bad happened to Natalee”
      “I will laugh if they find the girl alive”
      “Van Der Straaten “this is a murder invesitgation”

      When Iam reading articles about the case Natalee Holloway I donn’t understand why Joran vd Sloot is a happy student in Holland instead of behind bars for his murder on NATALEE HOLLOWAY. How is that possible, if I read all this articles it is so simple JvdS is guilty, SO PUT IN JAIL THIS WEEK, he is already for more than a year a free person

    120. MIss-Underestimated on October 26th, 2006 10:33 am

      119 read 111

    121. mayan_moons on October 26th, 2006 2:14 pm

      Depends on you’re definition of free 119. It is true he is not behind bars but he is a prisoner of his own lies & actions with Natalee Holloway.

    122. Amsterdamned on October 26th, 2006 2:45 pm

      # 121 I think you become a prisoner of your own thoughts (his lies & actions with Natalee Holloway)when JvdS / and friends never become in prison. I really pray for not an open ending of the Natalee Holloway Case

    123. viet vet on October 27th, 2006 10:49 am

      Maybe I gave the Dutch too much credit on intelligence. Duh, Impala,Caprice,Monte Carlo. and perhaps a Bel Air

    124. Carpe Noctem on October 27th, 2006 1:35 pm

      Hey Amster,

      You can not prove anything when your legal system
      is run by dirty throat slitting pedophiles
      like Paulus Van der Rape who do backroom double
      dealing, pay offs, and knock offs.

      Evidence to the the A.L.E. is like an effin ROACH MOTEL…

      It gets in, but it never gets back out!

      Again, I predict the murdering raping Van der Sloots and Kalpoes will be hunted down and executed for what they
      have done to Natalee. -J4N-

      I pray you find your answer’s. Our family never did back before all the support that is out there know in 1978, my 20 year old brother was murdered. I had to tell my mother who was the world to me. On her death bed, I said “Mom at least you’ll be with Eddie again, I told her to go in the light she looked at me closed her eyes and died. I wish I could find out what happend to him. It began with Eddie calling Mom when he was packing to come home he told my Mom [I was on the other phone] he said he was comming home and he bought a gun “and a watch that noone knew about” and “if anything should happend to get the watch” I really belive there was something on the back. Ark. police said he shot him self. The military said it would have been imposible for him to have made that entry and they predicded it happend on stairs. We had private dictectives they where told to leave town befor anything happend to them, [by the police]. They would not even let us bring him home to Williamsport Pa, to burry him. So what happends we go down to Little Rock Ark. for his services theres no watch, just like Eddie predicted and not even 24 hours after we talked to him everything was signed over to his ex. Thats not even legal. Then his father inlaw gets on his back on “A landing, on the stairs”, in front of Mom who’s ready to pass out as it is, he gets down and said’s this is where he fell and he goes on “I picked him up and he died in my arms, he just said tell “his ex” that I love her. and died” We just stood there Mom almost fell over. Then his son who was the only other person there at the time, runs out crying. He naever looked at any of us the whole time we were down there. I still have that feeling though I keep waiting for the phone to ring thinking who ever did it will confess on their death bed. but I’ll neaver forget that feeling like the world stopped, you cant breath and your so sick in the pit of your soul you just want him back!! Just for a minute or two. There are so many things about this case just like yours and I dont want anyone else to go threw that aching like we still do. If I had one wish I would go the rest of my life not ever knowing and still hurting like this forever if noone else ever had to. I’m so sorry and I wish I could join in the hunt with you but I’ll be their in prayers. If I can help with thank you notes or anything, “anything” please let me know. God Bless you all that is helping and Beth, God is on your side, even the long nights and days when you know you have to go on for your baby. Thank you for being that strong. I neaver told anyone about Eddie not like this maybe I finaly could because I see you doing anything you can. Oh, trust me, so did we but after 20 or 25 years Mom had to let it go, and that was’nt wrong for she had the most pain. But if I died like Eddie, I would want someone to find out the truth. Well we know the truth I guess I mean, do something to settle the score. I hope I did’nt depress you or hurt you more your doing the right things you will know everthing soon with everyone out there on your side they got to come clean soon.
      With All My Prayers [for you and youf whole family] Marie Starr

      beth you are going to far you can’t be calling a boycott and hurting the same people that helped you search for your daughter. Calling this a cover-up i mean come on. You are not that important! I feel for your loss but your emotions have lead you too far. See the kind of hate you brought upon Aruba in this blog nothing but negativity being spoken. It’s sad what happened but get a grip!

      Wishing you strength even though you’re hurting aruba in so many way’s.
