Thank God You’re Safe, Now Piss Off

No one should be surprised that, once liberated, the Christian Peacemaker team would stick a thumb in the eye of the U.S. and the troops.

Still, it’s irritating to see it anyway.

The Christian Peacemaker Teams said the activists went to Iraq “motivated by a passion for justice and peace.” Group volunteers have been in Iraq since October 2002, investigating allegations of abuse against Iraqi detainees by coalition forces. Its teams promote peaceful solutions in conflict zones.

“They knew that their only protection was in the power of the love of God and of their Iraqi and international co-workers,” Pritchard said.

He also called for coalition forces to leave the country.

All righty then, back to work.

“We believe that the illegal occupation of Iraq by Multinational Forces is the root cause of the insecurity which led to this kidnapping and so much pain and suffering in Iraq,” Pritchard said.

Do people still talk this way? Is al Zarqawi just a deeply insecure fellow who works out his issues on the necks of people?

Sheesh. One can only imagine the awkward moment of liberation.

Marine: OK, the area is secure. Are you OK?

Christian Peacemaker: Oh! we’ve been rescued by … the occupiers.

Marine: …

CP: We were hoping for someone a little more … um… oppressed.

Marine: My name is Miguel, if that helps.

CP: …

Marine: …

CP: …

Marine: So do you want to be taken out of here or what?

CP: Yea.

UPDATE II: Sites you need to check out:

The Jawa Report has the most comprehensive list of reactions to the CPT. (Thanks to Vinnie and Rusty)

Michelle Malkin is posting emails sent to the CPT leadership.

They weren’t released by good-hearted terrorists or by international good will . It took the coalition forces to do it. Those forces have also rescued Afghanistan and Iraq from brutal dictatorships that have terrorized and imprisoned millions of people. Setting the captives free can take many forms and I think you could show some gratitude for that.

If you have the faith to love your enemies, you might consider loving your friends and rescuers too.

Random thought. Perhaps the Christian Peacemakers don’t love their enemies after all. It’s becoming perfectly clear that the “occupation forces” are the real enemy here.

  1. I know it’s against everything that i’ve learned to wish harm on someone, but is it in bad taste to just remain ambivolent about the find or rescue of any of these deranged, Peace Sicophants?!

  3. The CPT has alot of nerve blaming the Multi-National forces for the kidnappings. I wonder if Jane Fonda is a charter member, she could give them some advice on how to give comfort the enemy !!
