Kidnapped Journalist's Mother Pleads With Captors
"They've picked the wrong person. If they're looking for someone who is an enemy of Iraq, Jill is just the opposite," Mary Beth Carroll told a major news network.
"I, her father and her sister are appealing directly to her captors to release this young woman who has worked so hard to show the sufferings of Iraqis to the world," she said, reading from a written statement.
While I pray for this womans safety and feel terrible sorrow for the family I think that they have demonstrated the fundamental misunderstanding about terrorists. They didn't "pick the wrong person" because to a terrorist there is no "wrong person."
It is beyond even killing just "infidels" or non-muslims, they will kill anyone. You can't plead with them, negotiate with them, placate them, or convince them that you are not their enemy. The only thing you can do is neutralize them. I wish that more people would understand this.
