    Muslims played key role in securing Carroll’s release

    Report bad ads?

    The Muslim world played a key role in securing the release of American journalist, Jill Carroll, who was kidnapped in Iraq nearly three months ago, according to the reporter’s boss at the Christian Science Monitor.

    Carroll, 28, is a freelance reporter for the Christian Science Monitor newspaper. She was released by her captors on Thursday.

    According to the team4news.com, Richard Bergenheim, editor of the Monitor, told reporters in Boston that Carroll’s release came with the help of a “chorus” of condemnation from Muslim leaders across the world.

    Bergenheim said this chorus "has been louder and louder" than any that's been heard "for some time."

    He stressed that there were "absolutely no" negotiations for Carroll’s release.

    Muslim leaders across the world denounced Carroll’s kidnapping and urged her kidnappers to release her “in the name of Islam”.

    Meanwhile, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) welcomed Carroll’s release, and called for the release of all other hostages in Iraq.

    "We welcome Jill Carroll's release and hope this positive development leads to a situation in which all other hostages currently being held in Iraq are released immediately and unconditionally," said CAIR Government Affairs Director Corey Saylor.

    Saylor was part of the delegation CAIR sent to Iraq in January to secure Carroll's release.

    CAIR coordinated a joint appeal by national Muslim leaders calling for Carroll's safe return to her family.

    The Washington-based group also held news conferences in Middle Eastern countries to call for the release of all Western hostages in Iraq.

    I know that we will all see what we want to see in this article, but I wonder idly, why that chorus did not start out loud and why it has taken so long to grow as loud as it is. If, after all, this sort of thing is forbidden in Islam, why didn't someone say so earlier?

    Muslim leaders across the world denounced Carroll’s kidnapping and urged her kidnappers to release her “in the name of Islam”.
    Oh, my mistake. It looks as if it isn't forbidden in Islam.

    not if she was a spy,but apparantly she wasnt and its good that she is released and she said she wasnt tortured or harmed and treated well... atleast the kidnappers had more humanity in them than the pathatic torturers at abugraib, guantanamo and other US prisons

    peace out

    On what basis do you equate the arrest of suspected terrorists by a genuine government with the illegal kdnapping of innocent people by criminals?

    Really? So you think there is nothing wrong with seizing a woman and holding her captive in some basement for a couple of months while threatening her with rape and/or execution and then coming out in public and blaming the Americans?
