Beth Holloway Speaks out to Teens on Safety, Faith and Hope: “I want them to remember Natalee.”


As Spring Break comes upon us again we are reminded of the of the story, Beth_Holloway_LovingNatalee legacy and lessons learned from the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba. It’s not only about “Justice for Natalee” its also about providing a message of safety for all teens to follow. There is no better person to provide the message of Safety, Faith and Hope than Beth Holloway.

As Aruba continues to provide no answers or justice for the family of Natalee Holloway, Beth Holloway continues her message to teenagers and their parents so that no one ever need to meet the Holloway’s same fate. Aruba continues to wonder why they have been branded as unsafe and corrupt. Is it really that difficult to understand? Nearly three years have gone by and all look on and see that Aruba cares little to provide “Justice for Natalee”.

“I want young adults and parents to open a dialogue about safety and what you need to know about personal safety on these trips,” she said. “I want them to remember Natalee.”

Alabamians, along with the rest of the nation and the world, were riveted by the news of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance in Aruba on a spring break trip to the country in May 2005. Many could only guess at the grief of a mother losing her daughter so suddenly.

In the months after, and as Beth Holloway began to realize that Natalee may never come back to their Birmingham-area home, Holloway was thrust into the spotlight by others who wanted to hear her story and how her faith had grown in the aftermath.

Holloway responded by spending a year traveling from city to city and state to state sharing the message of an organization she founded in the wake of Natalee’s disappearance, the International Safe Travels Foundation, which was designed to inform and educate the public about how to stay safe when traveling internationally.

      We, too, want all Americans to remember Natalee.

      And Aruba as well.

      In fact, we want to make sure that Aruba never forgets Natalee … and the subsequent cover-up.

      No justice for Natalee … no tourists for Aruba.

    2. brie on March 16th, 2008 12:49 pm

      No need to go to Aruba there are plenty of other beaches to visit, actually no need to even leave the US.

      Wonder how the 3 universities are doing with trying to solve Natalee’s case. We should ask Greta to give us ongoing updated information.

    3. misskatie on March 16th, 2008 1:13 pm

      We will keep natalees memory alive by
      to spread the word to americans and to all those abroad who travel to that evil island..
      we will not give up …
      PARENTS PLEASE::: do not let your daughters travel to aruba…
      protect their safety.. and your sanity…
      we will continue to stand by beth holloway and we will do everything that we can to make sure this doesnt happen to anyone else.
      I have two daughters and .. do not know what I would do if this was my child missing in aruba.. through all this beth has maintained her dignity and composure.. I admire her stamina and endurance..
      I know that scared monkeys will continue to spread the word as they so faithfuly have .. for there to be more public awareness of the terror island of aruba..the cover ups .. deciet..lies
      they have no one to blame but themselves for the publicity that has been at their heels from day 1
      they thought the story would die sooner or later.. not…
      joran one demented son.. with no self control.. One corrupt father.. who allowed his son to roam the casinos and all hours and truly way before he was old enough to drink.. they it seems could not dicipline or control him..he was allowed to throw a tantrum get his way, refusing to answer his cell phones, when his parents called him..were looking for him.. making excuses for him when he was in trouble.. they crossed the line .. when .. pauulus assisted in the cover up of the murder.paying people off and intimidating others. he pauulus broke his oath to serve and protect as a lawyer.. he proved to be dishonest with no integrity.. nor self respect. they sat face to face with beth in their home and played the role.. everything happening to aruba that is bad.. is owed to pauulus and his family.. his demented son.. JUSTICE FOR NATALEE ..

    4. misskatie on March 16th, 2008 1:25 pm

      often times I would wonder ..
      why lord if so many people around the world are praying. and in your word…. you say.. where two or three are gathered in my name .. there I am …in the midst..
      but still nothing happening.. no rearrests..
      I felt like the lord was trying to say.. when I do something I do it big .. just sit and wait.. patience..
      and now with the latest aruba is doing.. I am begining to see .. that .. god does work in mysterious ways his wonders to perform..they are sinking their selfs.. the truth will come out.. everything happends for a reason.. hard for us to understand.. let’s keep praying . for justice.. lets join together… I have met the neatest people here at scared monkeys with the biggest hearts . and bundles of insight wisdom and intellect.. people who sincerely from their hearts .. care.. I cant name you all but a few I remember names. like.. lotte..especialy brie.. and richard.. with all his wisdom and ability to put things into words.. s.s and alot of others.. keep up the faith.. we may see justice.. soon..

    5. misskatie on March 16th, 2008 1:29 pm

      I would like to add .. that.. I enjoy coming here and reading all the comments .. everyone makes.. some times I laugh at the remarks made by some .. we laugh together we cry together.. we express our opinion some harsher than others .. but thats what this place is for . to share how you feel.. I am happy to have found this sight…

    6. Mary,UK on March 16th, 2008 2:56 pm

      I continue to pray for Natalee and her family and hope all Americans support the boycott, try the Bahamas it is heaven on earth.

    7. brie on March 16th, 2008 3:04 pm

      misskatie…..we are happy to have you here with us and thank you for the kind words…

    8. Allan on March 16th, 2008 3:12 pm

      What daily suffering Beth goes through I feel so sorry. Honestly, I if it would have been my daughter I think he would have confessed up or be dead.
      Its awful the way he tormented and that should have been abruptly silenced from the beginning permanently. Kaput!

    9. kiltie65 on March 16th, 2008 3:38 pm

      To Beth: My old Irish mother used to say, “the mills of God grind slow, but exceedingly small.” It grieves me that you now know the truth, the world now knows the truth, and certainly Aruba knews the truth from day one, and we are all still waiting for justice. Boycott Aruba! And from the posts on this site, other Caribbean islands should be looked at with a jaundiced eye, too. Maybe if we boycotted all the Caribbean islands some pressure would be brought to bear on Aruba.

    10. Earl on March 16th, 2008 4:43 pm

      Hey monkeys,

      I saw this article and think it may be a cause for concern.I want the message to be clear to everyone worldwide.Not just in the USA.

    11. MissKatiekatie2u on March 16th, 2008 4:52 pm

      aww thank you brie
      I so enjoy all the different comments.. some good .. some not so good .. and some funny as hell…
      but in all seriousness were all here for beth and dave.. to see that justice is served
      and to bring down an island that is infested with crime and evil people like pauulus and his judicial buddies.. I am glad that the other female prosecutor is gone. I heard that she sent a letter to someone saying that beth was like hitler. if someone produces that letter now.. it can be used against aruba.. to show how sick they are.. they lack morals and feelings.. I didnt like her from the first time I laid eyes on her… I wouldnt be surprised if she wasnt banging with pauulus…yuck what a nasty visual.. her and mr sweattt hoggg

      I also do bear a great deal of grief for Natalee’s family…what they have gone thru all these years…and to know within 48 hrs the truth of what happened to Natalee was there….those that are part of this corruption should be exposed and hung by their you not whats!!!!!

      Criminal minds can only do this…..Anita even requested that Natalee’s name was never mentioned in school….why not! Can’t handle the shame!!!!

    15. brie on March 16th, 2008 5:17 pm

      The Sloot’s are undesirables living on the island of Aruba…Anita looks and dresses like a hooker, want to see my bra…I’m a schoolteacher and mother of three… Paulus doesn’t wash his hair and sweats like a pig…all because of these people with help eliminated a life of a beautiful girl….you are a disgusting piece of life………….

      Maybe we would bomb the beaches with advance notice…not wanting to hurt anyone but get rid of the attraction….

    16. OFIR on March 16th, 2008 5:18 pm


    17. brie on March 16th, 2008 5:25 pm

      Did they have to put up a traffic light to handle the cars cruising the Sloot house…..? They have got to be living in hell….!!!!

    18. brie on March 16th, 2008 5:30 pm

      misskatie…still looking for the whole address….I know there was a directory posted at one time…trying to find it!!!!

    19. brie on March 16th, 2008 5:32 pm

      Cross bow….did you publish a directory for us with Aruban addresses, way back when???? If so, could we see it again, thanks!!!!

    20. misskatie on March 16th, 2008 6:18 pm

I bet he hasnt slept well since way back.. and I hope he is haunted by natalees face.. but than sociopaths dont feel nothing.. like his son.. bad bad blood in that family all in that island.. what are they doing sleeping with relatives and spawning evil kids? that look like frankenstein..

    21. misskatie on March 16th, 2008 6:38 pm

      afer all he buys what he wants.. be it silence . or coverups.. he does it all …

    22. DEB on March 16th, 2008 6:40 pm

      were you all aware that over a dozen young arubans between ages of 17-33 years old died in 2005 after natalee disappeared?? all young suicides?? think not. i have list and there are more. the young male who supposedly saw natalee and joran on the beach at the lighthouse that night was also found dead. all natural deaths-THINK NOT!!!

    23. Bob on March 16th, 2008 6:51 pm

      #10 Earl……….

      Don’t believe everything liars put in print. Their PM, Oduber wailed that the Natalee case has ruined their tourism and has cost Aruba 10′s of $ millions. They will print, publish, and blog ANYTHING they can to try to counter a 20%+ LOSS in tourism. You will note, the Tourism dept didn’t even waste $5 to man the Travel Booth at the St. Louis Show 2 weeks ago. Why? Cause Aruba has been BLACK LISTED by most independent travel agencies and most Americans who own a TV.

      Remember, Jorans confession was broadcast from Holland, and repeat programs carried the story GLOBALLY in February of this year. People simply were horrified and have stopped going to Aruba. The airlines are flying far below breakeven and in some markets are offering flights for $99. And they can’t fill the seats. Hotels have discounted rack rates and specials….some with 55% off, and they can’t fill the rooms. The beaches and restaurants are empty by comparison to other islands. We like it that way. At some point their backs will break from crushing world opinion and someone will HAVE TO tell the truth there. Meanwhile, we wait and watch them sink economically.


    24. PUS on March 16th, 2008 7:07 pm

      Natalee Holloway – the perfect child, the ideal student, caregiver, volunteer, the once in a lifetime ultimate kid – snatched away and murdered by the savage VanDerSloots. They should be sued for what they robbed society. The VDS are animals that should be euthanized.

    25. misskatie on March 16th, 2008 8:09 pm

      I hear ya
      and at the top of the list pauulus and anita for creating this vicious frankenstein look alike monster. with his rapist kinky ass father.. they are the cockroach of the earth..I am sure pauulus seen her naked.. and video taped it.. he told joran to go home .. he probably raped her knowing she was dead.. sick sick sick.. you know evil reigns we have seen people like bundy and jeffrey dommer .. so we know they exist world wide.. PUS.. god idea…

    26. misskatie on March 16th, 2008 8:10 pm

      I meant good idea

    27. misskatie on March 16th, 2008 8:19 pm


      where are you getting info?
      I know pauulus has connections of the evilest sources.. I THINK many people who knew to much were either paid off or seriously intimdated.. I feel like Pauulus luck will run out.. WATCH HIM HAVE A MAJOR HEART ATTACK .. if were lucky.. and than jr will fall apart.. no more daddy to protect him.. the pressure has to be tremendous along with all that evil.. how long can they hold out…those in the world that have not heard of natalee holloway.. will soon know.. all the publicity . the lawsuit against greta.. will generate.. public.. world awareness. and actualy they are helping us.. tourism.. what island.. how much will the people of aruba take.. before they take their island back.. its falling at all angles.. tourism.. pickets.. traffic controllers.. I am not surprised to hear that those guys disappeared … just curious at where u obtained it.. they have opened the flood gates of hell.. unleashed .. their own demons.. they will be defeated… aruba will payyyyyyyyyyy

    28. misskatie on March 16th, 2008 8:22 pm

      I am going to bed to ponder .. lets see what tomorrow brings.. curious to see what greta.. nancy grace .. and also lets not forget bill oreiley.. he also encouraged americans to boycott aruba.. yes tomorrow more info.. and updates.. good nght monkeys god bless

    32. brie on March 16th, 2008 9:20 pm

      Scared Monkeys…can you find the post that listed the directory of Aruba public and personal listings for Aruba….thank you…I know it was here but I can’t find it….

    33. Carpe on March 16th, 2008 9:46 pm

      Keep up the good fight, Beth!


      I saw a feature on the DISCOVERY CHANNEL the other
      night… it was a show on all of the sadistic Arubian nastiness & INEPTNESS over the 2005 Natalee Holloway – Vandersloot/Kalpoe
      murder rape debacle.

      That Bart Simpson hair-do havin’ MO-FO, GEROLD
      DOMPIG was carrying on cryin’ and whinin’ about how ARUBA spent their entire yearly budget on the case alone…

      Then the scene quickly cuts to BETH to get her reply… & the reporter asks her what she thinks
      about DOMPIG’S claims…

      …and she simply says something like:

      “Oh Well, maybe they need

      to budget a little better!”



      I F’N WET MY DRAWERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


      You gotta love, Nat’s momma!

      She ain’t taking any crap from
      those ridiculous Arubian

    34. JORAN IS A PIG and SO IS PAULUS on March 16th, 2008 10:27 pm

      same old story from aruba
      1. blame beth
      2. blame the usa
      3. blame dave
      4. blame jug
      5. blame peter
      6. blame patrick
      7. blame the ground hog
      8. blame the the other kids from MB
      9. blame the US media

      yea, thats the ticket. forget the fact that Natalee was last seen with 3 pigs from aruba.

      and by the way, what is all this BS people say
      the last “known” person to be seen with Natalee
      just what exactly is that supposed mean

      look HE WAS THE LAST KNOWN person to be seen with her, therefore HE IS, WAS and always will be the last one to be seen with her..

      GOT IT ?

      good !!

      now, go be a nice little wanker arubian and go arrest the pigs.. do something that will resemble the right thing and look somewhat human

    35. JORAN IS A PIG and SO IS PAULUS on March 16th, 2008 10:29 pm

      DOMPIG is a SLUT

    37. brie on March 16th, 2008 11:07 pm

      Why doesn’t the Dutch just get it over with and extradite the case to the US… done with it!!! It isn’t going away, only costing more dollars due to the covering up and corruption….give it up!!!

    38. Earl on March 16th, 2008 11:10 pm

      miss point is that the aruban tourism market will have to move beyond the American market to reach the numbers they once did.europe(non-dutch)and south america,will replace the american tourists.

    39. brie on March 16th, 2008 11:14 pm

      Too bad we can’t send low flying planes over the island saying “Abandon the island, Justice for Natalee….

    41. Richard on March 16th, 2008 11:26 pm

      Folks, tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day. Music, emotions, and Guinness (my favorite beer, anyway) will flow freely. Let’s remember Natalee … and ALL MISSING PEOPLE AND THEIR FAMILIES.

      Today I heard an emotionally overpowering performance of a traditional British folk song … my eyes couldn’t stay dry. I’m posting it here; it takes about 3.5 minutes to hear.

      You can find the traditional lyrics to this song on the Internet. They don’t really fit well with the theme of missing people, so I’m not putting them here … but the overpowering emotion of this song is what really matters.

      The performance, recorded in Dublin, Ireland, includes a tin whistle (I think) that adds an inexplicable pang. It somehow evokes something that is the particular province of the Irish … serenity amidst intense grief … and hence is suited to St. Patrick’s Day.

      As you listen, please think of all missing people and their families. In particular, I wish to cite those I know best: the names of Amy Bradley, George Smith, and Johnny Gosch.

      In the video, we see a huge mass of people waving lights to the music. My dream was that someday, we will see such a group working together for answers in these cases.

      Someday, perhaps. Someday.

    42. Richard on March 16th, 2008 11:28 pm

      The NAME of the song, by the way, is “The Last Rose of Summer.”

      I’m not sure what you are looking for.
      Thanks to SM you can check business and who own them.
      That is how I found out that they changed the date when Willeim Van Cromvoirt left the VCB Business. His face was all over the VCB Security web site when Natalee disappeared.
      He was advertising his business as late as last year; Aruba shows that the business was desolved in ’04 NOT.

      This is the easiest. They keep changing the format. Stepanie Croes (aka Loco Stef)in MOKO; Joran’s girlfriend in 2005 as an example to find addresses.

      Deb 22: Could you elaborate: I could use a link to those deaths Thanx

    46. crossbow on March 17th, 2008 3:57 am

      33: Carpe
      I have been looking at that show at least a dozen times. Dompig has a theory on what happened. The reporter misdirects you into thinking it is just a theory and Dompig without blinking an eye spills his guts out and tells us what happened to Natalee.
      I think there was another group involved.
      I think she died because her “body” could not take the drugs and alchohol that they gave her.
      She was buried not once but twice; They did not go to the beach. Do you think she went to the Van der Sloots? Probable. We have statements that Natalee had drugs. Reporter: what Kind. Dompig I cannot say. Of course she had drugs you A$$hole. She had a sinus condition.
      Just review that show and keep checking Dompigs Eyes. He cannot look at the reporter directly when he is lying.
      I was going to hold off for a while but since you brought it up; my turn to spout off.

    49. Carpe on March 17th, 2008 4:56 am

      One thing I picked up… going back over
      all the recent Nancy Grace video about
      the refusal to re-arrest Joran post
      De Vries confession…

      When he’s telling Patrick what Natalee was
      was saying to him whilst leaving C & C…

      In the translations he says it just like this…


      Natalee said…

      “No, no, no, I don’t want to GO
      BACK TO > ******* MY OWN HOTEL.”

      *I just wanted to make a
      quick note of my observations.

      together like that… It could reasonably lead someone to believe there was ANOTHER HOTEL in the discussion somewhere along the lines.

      Like WHERE JORAN-STEIN probably had in mind where
      he wanted her to go that night…

      Friday the unions have demanded that the gov’t comes up with a new proposal within 7 days, if not the strike will substantially intensify. The gov’t on the other hand, demanded a hard guarantee of minimal staffing on the vital gov’t services, police, fire department, customs, immigration and prison. It was also decided that the fire departments are no longer allowed to strike because of minimal staffing. The unions said for the time being these services will not be paralyzed but they can expect this if they refuse to face facts.

      Hundreds of pubic servants marched through the downtown streets of Oranjestad, another one of Aruba’s sight-seeing attractions.

    53. DEB on March 17th, 2008 8:46 am

      Misskatie, i am getting my info from a victim rightsattrney who has the blog site Boycott Aruba-Justice for Natalee. She has been working on this case since the beginning. She sent me a partial list of these deceased young people yesterday and will be working on this. someone sent me the memorial a week or so ago for the boy who saw joran on the beach that night with natalee. all accidents or natural causes=i think not. michelles email address is if you are interested in lists. thanks debbie

    54. Richard on March 17th, 2008 9:11 am

      Brie, I have an address which I was told will work for Paulus van der Scum. I have never used it. Send me a private e-mail, via moderator Klaasen, and I will provide it. No guarantees.

      I gather you are referring to the INTERNATIONAL Court at The Hague??? Good point…does a country have to belong to an organization to appeal to that court..wonder what cases they accept….anyhow its worth suggesting to the Holloways, but you’d have thought their highpriced lawyers would have looked into it!!
      KLAAS…Any comments?
      PS I am also an American Brit.

      the cruise lines are picking up on this. on my wife’s last cruise to jamaica, she was given a flyer and printed on it was ” if you have any kind of trouble on this island, DO NOT CALL THE LOCAL POLICE.” also phone numbers were proivded by the cruise line for you to contact.
      in essence, the local police are the most corrupt people on these islands.

    59. kiltie65 on March 17th, 2008 10:15 am

      Brie, isn’t the VDS home address Montagna 19 in Aruba? One of the blogs talks about all the missing young men, “suicides”, since Natalee’s loss. I was blown away by one “suicide” that Jossy Mansur talked off just recently on this site. This young man was the bartender at a neighboring bar to Carlos & Charlies where Satish jumped out of the car Natalee was in and ran in and spoke to before they continued and Natalee met her fate. That bartender managed to be found, a suicide, with both his arms and legs cut off. Quite a hat trick to kill yourself with no limbs! P.S. I’m an American Scot, too.

      thank you so kindly. I see what your point was now.. thanks again

      Kayjay!! I am born, bred and still living in the UK, i have been on so many sites that i have lost travk, but one was a us government site and it was mentioned that Americans travelling to the Netherlands or a dutch (dont know the term) will be covered under international law. someone smarter than me would explain better but after researching on dozens of sites the very least the Holloway/Twittys deserve an investigation into judicial misconduct on the island!!!!

      crossbow…thank you but for some reason I thought there was the letter j somewhere in the street name….might be mistaken…

      is it possible that pauulus set that up?
      so much evil on that island.. they practice some kind of voodism there? like they say about jamaica and other places.

    67. Sharon Chicago on March 17th, 2008 12:25 pm

      It is just appauling that Joran confesses to be with Natalee when she dies and confesses to call someone to get rid of the body AND ARUBA DOES NOTHING!!!

      Aruba Tourism Authority Names New Advertising Agency

      Thursday, 28/02/2008
      The Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) has announced the appointment of a new advertising agency, Lowe New York. The exciting news came February 8, when, after six months of searching for an advertising agency, ATA appointed Lowe New York to head up all of Aruba’s advertising in North America.
      ATA began the government mandated advertising agency review in July 2007 with the assistance of 10 partners from the public and private sectors, and guidance from AAR Partners, a review specialist company. AAR Partners is a third-party, industry-recognized consultant that provided counsel and expertise in the agency selection.

      The process started with over 45 contending agencies and it was then narrowed to five exceptional firms from around the country. After months of chemistry meetings, work sessions, conference calls and presentations, the much anticipated final decision was announced. Lowe New York’s work with ATA officially starts April 1, 2008.

      Underscoring the island’s commitment to continuous improvement, the government mandated review requires a periodic review of all agency partners to ensure the best service, value and fit with the marketing objectives, goals and core beliefs of ATA. This serves as a tool to examine ATA’s current capabilities and identify its emerging priorities.

      Lowe New York will now be charged to meet all of the goals of Aruba’s advertising including enhancing the brand of the island’s tourism sector, reaching its core audience, and meeting strategic business objectives.

      The main qualities for selecting a new agency were excellent strategic insights and thinking, the strong chemistry and fit with the Aruba team, thought-provoking ideas and a global perspective.

      “ATA is very much looking forward to the excitement of a fresh start and new beginning working with our new partners at Lowe New York,” said Myrna Jansen-Feliciano, managing director for the Aruba Tourism Authority. “We are confident that our detailed review process has brought us to the ideal candidate to handle our advertising in the U.S. and we are looking forward to a partnership with Lowe that will be successful and productive.”
      thought it may be of interest:

    71. MissKatiekatie2u on March 17th, 2008 1:11 pm

      these a**holes .. couldnt work with beth and dave to bring justice.duh aruba . natalee is american
      they have their nerve to elicit the assistance of agencies in the united states to bring their tourism back to par. yet they are going to sue .. greta .. nancy all some other news stations.. well lets see how far they get…
      lowe needs letters sent to them . showing our distaste for working with aruba to prosper economicaly.. does lowe not know about natalee an american killed in aruba… why do they insist on employing americans like joe taco and now lowe…
      they need to ask for help elsewhere.. with their double standards. that just pisses me off

    72. MissKatiekatie2u on March 17th, 2008 1:18 pm

      Do they think after all the publicity is out.. about them suing all these news stations..
      that they will benefit from it.. they can pay all the money they want.. ARUBA will not prosper… they get dumb and dumber…
      they seem desperate.. they want the united states to assist them.. but where is their loyalty to the family of natalee..
      she was murdered on their crappy island…..
      can you guys believe the nerve of them…
      they dont employ attorneys in their area.. they are too much…wheres this all going to end..
      any predictions?

      richard.. brie.. any others care to comment

      Some months back Jossy said Joran’s younger brothers were with friends in America keeping out of the limelight. (If so, I would guess Florida as that was Joran’s original planned destination.) If these two kids are still in the U.S., isn’t it ironic Natalee, our American citizen, goes to Aruba and is never heard from again, but VDS two sons are in America being kept safe? As for Joran, I am sure he has had to surrender his passport in the Netherlands, so I suspect he’s still hidden away somewhere there. One of his lawyers, some name like DeRooj???, is petitioning Hans Mos to let Joran return without arresting him when he sets foot in Aruba.

    76. Richard on March 17th, 2008 3:53 pm

      Thanks for the good words, MissKatie. I remember posting that article way back in February, but not the lengthy version that is here.

      Don’t you find this part of the release delicious?

      “Lowe New York will now be charged to meet all of the goals of Aruba’s advertising including enhancing the brand of the island’s tourism sector …”

      As the saying goes, put lipstick on a pig and it’s still a pig.

      No New York ad agency can get any “lowe”r than Lowe. Well, we will keep our protests going … let’s see what kinds of PR ads will offset the basic questions we ask and the honest truths that we present.

      Natalee’s picture is worth more than the press releases paid for with Aruba’s corrupt money. (BTW, one wonders how this news will resonate with the striking unions?)

      I’m also wondering, given the deteriorating mortgage market here, whether mobsters will have as much money to pour into casinos, hotels, and other money-laundering evasions on Aruba.

      Maybe our legislators should take an interest in that … assuming that they take any interest in anything besides being elected and re-elected.

      If Joran’s brothers are indeed in Florida, maybe they’re hanging out with the former head of ATA, who got a job with the West Palm Beach tourism people in reward for his “excellent work” in keeping the Natalee Holloway case quiet.

      Not in promoting justice, you understand.

      The corrupt ties between Florida and Aruba deserve investigating on their own.

    77. Bob on March 17th, 2008 3:57 pm

      Gentlemen, start your engines. We have a new tourism target:

      Lowe Worldwide

      150 E 42nd St, New York, NY10017

      Tel: (212) 605-8000

      Web Site:

      Business Description: Full Service

      NAICS: Advertising Agencies

      Perhaps a lawfull, but vocal picketing protest is in order shortly in the Big Apple. Think local TV coverage by CBS, NBC, ABC, and all the smaller TV broadcast systems. This Lowe outfit deserves a special “NY Welcome” for the poor judgement of signing up to act as an Aruba advertising spokesman.

      We’ll do a background on this outfit and see what turns up.

    78. MissKatiekatie2u on March 17th, 2008 4:27 pm

      they got their nerve..I do hope that … joran will not be ever allowed to enter the u.s
      and if his brothers are here in our country..
      I say how ironic.. it amazes me that they come here so arrogantly and freely.. expecting to be treated with regard..and respect..
      why cant they remain on their evil island.. we dont need the likes of them here polluting our country…poosibly with propoganda..
      pauulus keep … your spawns on your island…
      they hire legal assistance here.. what !!! THEY DONT TRUST THEIR OWN??

      Joran made a second confession…first at the police station on May 30th…this was thrown out because he was 17 and no lawyer present…compliments of Paulus…..they have known all along..and Paulus receives compensation….how much worst can it get….he helped Joran dispose of Natalee….

    85. hoepelman on March 17th, 2008 5:46 pm

      Lowe is part of Interpublic, the second largest communications giant in the world. Their main focus is their billings and not our opinions. Part of being a successful advertising and communications company entails knowing the client’s product, its goals, strategic objectives, but also its problems and hindrances. I am sure LWW knows all the details related to Natalee Holloway, her disappearance, the problems Aruba has as a result of the PR nightmare and bad economic policies. I think sending “tons” of e-mails is a waste of time and energy that could be put to better use in other pro-justice efforts.

      “BAGHDAD (AFP) – The explosive vest has become the weapon of choice for al-Qaida in Iraq, with most jihadists nowadays wearing the lethal garment and the number of suicide attacks rising, the US military said Sunday.”

      The actual story above went on at some length and relayed that imported / foreign fighters were enticed to enter Iraq with the goal of killing American soldiers. However, once in Iraq, they were stripped of money, passports, etc., and were treated with distain by senior al-Qaida criminals because THEY were foreigners. Many then refused to wear their vests and commit suicide….their feelings were hurt. Darn. A large number of these poor souls are sorely in need to recoup their dignity and health before re-enlisting in the muslim backed war effort.

      This is a sad story folks, these poor unappreciated suicide artists need some R&R and relaxation. We would like to also help AHATA fill their rooms, beaches, casinos, and restaurants once again. Therefore, on Monday, we will be posting a PayPal link to collect donations that will provide upwards of 300 Saudis and Iran fighters with a 2 week vacation in sunny Aruba. Think of the economic relief this will offer the local gendre! Be generous folks, let’s show Aruba how thankful we Americans have been for their hard work and friendship shown to vacationing female Tourists. Viva Aruba!!!!! Viva al-Qaida!!!!! Com’on, let’s let those tourism numbers up. Banana boat rides anyone?

    95. Bob on March 17th, 2008 9:56 pm

      Oh my, say it ain’t so. Another loss for Aruba! Now Wikipeda is dissing the sand bar. Wikipedia is a free, open content, community-built encyclopedia with thousands of articles on topics from A to Z. Available in dozens of languages.

      Due to lack of interest and recorded ‘hits’ by anyone interested in learning anything about the subject, Wikipedia is dropping it’s reference page under A. However, it is rumored in media circles that a small section will carry Aruba references under C in the future. C = Corrupt Islands of the Caribbean. Perhaps the quest for accuracy is taking on new impetus.

      # 48 & 56 ~ I asked that same question a long time ago ~ especially when I asked about the judge who was on the case and then again later…when things were resurfacing… and MO’s was in charge. (finding out it was the same Judge)… I say he needed to recuse himself from the case being a colleague of Paulus…

      Why isn’t this case being taken out of Aruba and into the Dutch judicial system held in the Netherlands?… then, and only then, will this case be in clean hands (I hope)…

      I must add, God Bless you Beth for your Faith ~ your courage,tenacity,class and immense caring heart to warn all others with children or adults who are traveling abroad to other countries and the need for safety education.

      We will never forget your dear Natalee, or you and your family. Our prayers are with you, her friends and all those whom life she touched. We’ll continue to pray for resolve and for accountability ~ in this case. Godspeed.

      Aruba reminds many people of TV travel and drug commercials. Along with possible benefits, there are consequences which are spoken in low tones. A one week stay in friendly Aruba could result in drugging, personal physical attack, rape, and worse. Often repeat visits to certain third class, but over priced, restaurants could result in upset stomach, bloating, hair loss, sexual dysfunction, and surprise involuntary anal discharge. Welcome to Aruba….one crappy island.

      I have heard that there is a Galleria Mall near Brimingham, Alabama with a car dealership’s display. The dealership is offering a trip to Aruba as a prize. Can anyone check this out? This dealership needs to receive lots of mail.

    100. Bob on March 18th, 2008 7:03 am

      Well, it’s indeed possible I guess. Perhaps Lowe Worldwide, Aruba’s new ad agency, will be able restore Aruba’s lost reputation after all? A massive, no budget hold, cute advertising and free vacation giveaway program might just entice some unsuspecting traveller into returning to Aruba for vacations some day. Afterall, when think 10,000 monkeys and a typewriter stuck in a room for 1,000 years could eventually make like Shakespeare, anything is possible.

      Nah, I think Aruba’s too far gone, their actions preceed themselves. Only one thing will restore a modicum of trust – Justice 4 Natalee. Will they ever be up to the task?

      No matter who runs Aruba’s advertising efforts, our best weapon is the truth. And the willingness to repeat it in public, at Aruba’s travel shows and the like.

      No justice for Natalee … no tourists for Aruba.

      Whassthematter Earl? Did Bob strike a nerve? Is this what happens when the truth is told – insults come out? I assume you are from Aruba, where everybody lies (and this is admitted by Anita herself).

      The crimes, lies and cover-ups are not only transparent, but they are plain & simply wrong. And I do not care to hear one more time about the so-called laws and investigative protocol of Aruba. Wrong is universal no matter where you go. It is high time for the Aruban people and officials to do the right thing & fess up….. quit protecting the evil.

    109. misskatie on March 19th, 2008 9:33 am

      we keep getting these negative trouble making .. attention seekers in here.. they like to get noticed.. they crave the attention like some crave chocolate….

      I posted this on another site “calling all monkeys and posters…my suggestion is that the 3rd anniversary of natalee’s rape/murder/disappearance is fast approaching. none of us have given up hope. i think one of the positive things is the american news media has helped us keep her story alive. i have recently started AND i wish each of you would take a few minutes to go to every media website (i.e. CNN, FOX, ABC, CBS, NBC, Glen Beck, Greta, Bill O’Reily,AMW,Geraldo, etc) any that you can think of, make a list, visit each website and go to “contact”, send an email or letter asking or begging them to do a special update on the natalee holloway case as her 3rd anniversary is approaching. press upon them the importance of keeping this case alive and that there are so many unanswered questions and lies within the government…….i’m sure each of you can formulate a convincing email or letter on your own without my help. everyone here at SM is and always has been concerned with one thing…..getting answers and to the truth of this case.(except for a few buttheads who don’t belong on this site to begin with). god bless each of you who carry the torch and keep the hope alive for natalee and the holloway family.”

      On right now, on her newest thread, Guod is saying Joran has been arrested in the Netherlands. Claims he got it from Canal One in Aruba??? Most of the bloggers are pooh poohing him on this, but I so hope it’s true.

    114. Candi on February 20th, 2009 6:22 pm

      Thanks for this opportunity to communicate with you. I will be watching for your website to be up and running. I have twelve children between ages 17 and 36. Most have traveled beyond borders into the unknown. I have not. I cannot prepare them for dangers which are unkown to me. I have spent too much time worrying about them. Knowing I have done all I can to ensure their safe return would be meaningful for me. I would love to participate in the education of safety as your website suggests. I can offer volunteer time in any way and to any extent that I can. I have been forced into retirement following a stroke, but I have oodles of hours to volunteer. I need to something, and what better way then to raise awareness. I’m available.
