CPT, A Collection of Neville Chamberlain’s

The Al-Jazeera network broadcast a terrorist video showing four members of “Christian Peacemaker Teams” (CPT) who were kidnapped by terrorists in Iraq on Saturday, November 26, 2005. According to the CPT web site, “Christian Peacemaker Teams is a program of Brethren, Quaker and Mennonite Churches (USA and Canada).”

The Swords of Righteousness Brigade claimed responsibility.

Apparently CPT is a peace activist organization that willingly sends its members into harms way for the sake of “violence reduction.” Their website states that their “teams of trained peacemakers work in areas of lethal conflict around the world.” In addition to Iraq, CPT workers are currently “reducing violence” in Colombia, the west bank, and on the U. S. - Mexican border.

After the kidnappings, the CPT group issued a statement on their web page saying in part:

“We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. governments due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people.”

So…these CPT members purposely went to Iraq to bring attention to themselves and their own leftist agenda, to protest the liberation of 26,074,906 people, to protest the removal of a dictator who rivaled Joseph Stalin in his viciousness, to protest the toppling of a regime that sponsored terrorism around the world. The kooks of the CPT willingly went into a combat zone where the terrorists want nothing more than to kill anyone isn’t the right kind of Muslim, and it’s America’s and Britain’s fault?

Let me enlighten you. It’s your own damn fault. You and your fellow anti-war leftists are buckets of cowardly scum. You allow terrorism to expand and advance though your self centered platitudes of blaming America first and foremost. You defend and aid terrorism with your cowardly, self righteous, propaganda.

How dare you claim to represent Christians? A Christian is not a coward. A Christian will defend the helpless and the downtrodden just as we have done and are doing in Iraq.

Your website asks what I suppose is a rhetorical question: “What would happen if Christians devoted the same discipline and self-sacrifice to nonviolent peacemaking that armies devote to war?”

The answer to your stupid question of course is that we would end up in a torture room displayed as hostages on Al-Jazeera.
