TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE REAL WAR ON WOMAN …
ISIS is now demanding a 6.6 million ransom for a 26 year old woman from the West Coast who was kidnapped a year ago while doing humanitarian work in Syria. The unidentified woman is one of at least three known hostages of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also known as ISIL) in Syria. ISIS is demanding the $6.6 million ransom and the release of Aafia Siddiqui, who was convicted of attempting to kill U.S. officials in 2010.
A third American hostage held by ISIS has been identified as a 26-year-old American woman who was kidnapped a year ago while doing humanitarian relief work in Syria. The terror group is demanding $6.6 million and the release of U.S. prisoners for the life of the young woman, whom a representative for the family requested not be identified.
She is the third of at least four Americans who were known to be held by ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. American journalist James Foley was executed by the group in a video that appeared online last week. Another writer, Steven Sotloff, was seen alive but under duress in the same footage.
The Other McCain brings up an interesting point to ponder, is there Equal Rights for Hostages? A position of not negotiation with terrorists should really know no race, creed, religion, color or gender. If we did, terrornapping or jihadinapping of women would become common place.
The United States refused to pay a ransom for James Foley, and it would be sexist discrimination to pay ransom for a woman.
I will say this, of ISIS ever beheaded an America woman who’s only crime was doing humanitarian work, even the dithering Barack Obama would be forced to become a war-hawk as it would be pretty difficult to spew the rhetoric of the GOP war on woman and then have one beheaded by the Jayvee team.
