Hunt continues for Gaza reporter
Eastern sources seem to know a bit more
The Sword of Islam (al Qaeda) kidnapped and is holding BBC reporter Alan Johnston
Our counter-terror sources report that Johnston, 44, was snatched Monday, March 12, in Gaza City, by the same group which together with Hamas kidnapped the Israeli soldier Gilead Shalit in June 2006. It is led by the brothers Mumtaz and Muetaz Durmush.
This is the same group indirectly and maybe inadvertantly supported and monetized by Bush Administration maneuvers.
