But will he respect her when he has been paid the money?
Really. I am not making this up.
In November 2008 a Dutch journalist, Joanie de Rijke, was abducted by Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. She was held captive, raped repeatedly, and released after six days for a ransom of 100,000 euros ($137,000). After her ordeal, she acknowledged that her captors “did horrible things to me,” but added in several media interviews “They also respected me,” and emphasized “They are not monsters.”
Gert Wilders, the man so terrible the Brits won’t let him in their country, had this to say:
She was raped, but she was not angry. The journalist who went looking for the Taliban in Afghanistan saw her curiosity end in a cruel ordeal of multiple rape. While this would make others angry or sad, this journalist shows understanding. She says: ‘They also respected me.’ And she was given tea and biscuits.”
And the clincher comes when her boss can't make himself believe that these are Taliban people.
Lescroart also said that he believed the group which abducted de Rijke were not real Taliban but........“some sort of Taliban ‘freelancers,’ scum who were after money. They did not want the real Taliban to know what they were doing, because the real Taliban do not accept that kind of behavior.”
Oh, really? Can we agree that this man is not part of the real world?
Wilders added:(This) “is a perfect illustration of the moral decline of our elites. They are so blinded by their own ideology that they turn a blind eye to the truth. Rape? Well, I would put this into perspective, says the leftist journalist: the Taliban are not monsters. Our elites prefer to deny reality rather than face it. One would expect: a woman is being raped and finds this unbearable. But this journalist is not angry because the Muslim involved also showed respect. Our elites, whether they are politicians, journalists, judges, subsidy gobblers or civil servants, are totally clueless. Plain common sense has been dumped in order to deny reality. It is not just this raped journalist who is suffering from Stockholm syndrome, but the entire Dutch elite. The only moral reference they have is: do not irritate the Muslims – that is the one thing they will condemn.”
It is beyond obvious that Europe, especially Western Europe, has collapsed. It has no moral positions left. It supports the radical Muslims because the radical Muslims hate what the Lefties hate. Western culture, western values, Christian values. Thus we have the ultimate “Enemy of my enemy” situation in which the ruling elites cannot surrender fast enough and anyone who objects, as Wilders has, is attacked by his own people for the radical Muslims.
