Oh, granted, every now and then they'll kidnap an Israeli soldier just for some balance.
Stockholm can explain the after-capture attitude. How would you explain the pre-capture sympathies?

But of course, they have no preconceived agenda in reporting the "news." Not even Fox is immune, unfortunately.

In fact here’s another experience, but less meaningful. I don't know if you remember an incident where a Lebanese man was arrested by the Lebanese Police in May or June and was charged with planning on blowing off the Hudson. It was a Lebanese-FBI cooperation that led to that. Well it turns out; I've seen and talked to the guy. His family name is Hamoud, he lives in front of my friend's house. I recall him well, because I used to run into him in the street, he drove a flashy red old MG. And one time I was picking up my friend, he came and told me to move my car because it’s his parking space. So when I saw him on the news, I was shocked. Little did I know about meeting a terrorist! I felt spooky and weird.

I would strongly encourage you to do it! They need more "Professors" (aka, terrorist sympathizers) teaching the little kids to hate and kill us. Who knows, you might even get kidnapped and beheaded. They could send your head back to the NTSB for analysis and diagnosis of Stockholm Syndrome.

I bet you're glad you moved your car.

Interesting story! I wonder if you meet more terrorists in Beirut or NYC?
