More than a few on the left hoped for the death of Khaled Centanni. In fact some of the language I have seen used by those people sound remarkably similar to the sentiments of Olaf's & Steve's kidnappers. Fortunately, they both are alive. However, it is reported other journalists in the Palestinian territories are not so lucky.
They are not foreign correspondents but local reporters. Who mourns for them? Certainly not those who hoped for Steve & Olaf's death.
Remember, those who say they are peace activists are often no such thing. Its not they oppose war they just oppose a victory by Liberalism.
