How to Resolve an IslamoNazi Hostage Crisis In One Easy Lesson

Polish hostage, Piotr Stanczak, sitting on the floor flanked by two masked men. Off camera, a militant briefly engages him in conversation before three others behead him.

Polish hostage Piotr Stanczak, a geologist, was beheaded by IslamoNazis in Pakistan, 2009.

Wherever we turn, IslamoNazis strike terror into the heart of democracies through kidnappings and slaughter.

America freed four high-level IslamoNazis in return for one worthless American traitor.

There was a time when Israel did not negotiate with terrorists — until they did. Gilad Shalit was traded for over one thousand hardened terrorists, many with blood on their hands. And, of course, most of them have returned to their favorite occupation: Killing Jews.

Keep in mind that being a Palestinian is not a nationality but a profession.

Back in the late 80s, when IslamoNazi kidnappings first gained traction on the world stage, four Soviet diplomats were kidnapped in Beirut by Hizbullah.

The KGB resolved the crisis — in their own direct style.

Ever since, the IslamoNazis have, for the most part, shied away from kidnapping Russians, and concentrated instead on softer targets: Israel and other democracies: America, France, England, Poland, etc.

One might recoil from the brutality of the KGB’s methods, but their measure-for-measure brutality is effective in curbing IslamoNazi kidnapping plots against Russians.

And let’s face reality, the theocratic fascism of Islam is genocidal, a zero sum ideology which must be annihilated — or Western civilization will perish.

Are you among those frustrated Americans who have wondered how the Soviet Union’s only hostage crisis in Lebanon was resolved in just a month, while the plight of the six U.S. hostages held there continues to drag on without any break in sight?

Well, according to the Jerusalem Post, the Soviets turned the trick by forgoing diplomacy in favor of a brutally more direct approach to the problem.

Simply put, they presented the kidnappers with chilling proof that terror can cut both ways. Literally!

The crisis began last Sept. 30, you might recall, when four attaches from the Soviet Embassy were kidnapped in Beirut by Muslim extremists. Western news agencies received individual photos of the four men that same night, each with an automatic pistol pressed against his head.

The photos were accompanied by a note from a hitherto unknown group calling itself the Islamic Liberation Organization. The message warned that the four Soviet captives would be executed, one by one, unless Moscow pressured pro- Syrian militiamen to cease shelling positions held by the pro-Iranian fundamentalist militia in Lebanon’s northern port city of Tripoli.

Although the Soviets attempted to open some channel for negotiations with the kidnappers, there was no immediate let-up in the shelling at Tripoli.

Only two days after the kidnappings, the body of one of the four kidnapped men, a 30-year-old consular secretary named Arkady Katov, was found, shot through the head, on a Beirut trash dump.

Apparently, that’s when the Soviets dropped the idea of sweet talk and turned the matter over to the KGB.

Less than four weeks later, the three remaining hostages were freed on foot only 150 yards from the Soviet Embassy.

The pro-Syrian daily Al Sharq credited their release to the clandestine efforts of Brig. Gen. Ghazi Kanaan, the chief of intelligence for Syrian forces in Lebanon.

Western journalists reported that the kidnappers were forced to free the hostages because a block-to-block search by pro-Syrian militiamen was closing in on them.

But it wasn’t until last week that Jerusalem Post diplomatic correspondent Benny Morris uncovered the most compelling reason why the three Soviets were released, emaciated and tired, but otherwise unharmed.

According to Morris, the KBG determined the kidnapping to be the work of the Shiite Muslim group known as Hezbollah, or Party of God. This was the same radical pro-Iranian faction that figured so belligerently in the mass hostage-taking from the TWA airliner at Beirut Airport last June.

Unlike the approach the United States used to resolve the TWA crisis, however, the Soviets did not bother negotiating with Hezbollah through Nabih Berri, Lebanon’s justice minister and leader of the Shiite Amal militia.

Instead, the KGB kidnapped a man they knew to be a close relative of a prominent Hezbollah leader. They then castrated him and sent the severed organs to the Hezbollah official, before dispatching the unfortunate kinsman with a bullet in the brain.

In addition to presenting him with this grisly proof of their seriousness, the KGB operatives also advised the Hezbollah leader that they knew the indentities of other close relatives of his, and that he could expect more such packages if the three Soviet diplomats were not freed immediately.

The message was a lot more extreme than Ronald Reagan’s vague allusions to using “Rambo next time,” but the swift release of the three remaining hostages indicated that the Hezbollah big shot couldn’t handle having terror shoved back in his face.

Post reporter Morris quoted unidentified observers in Jerusalem as noting:

“This is the way the Soviets operate. They do things – they don’t talk.

“And this is the language the Hezbollah understand.”

    One might recoil from the brutality of the KGB’s methods, but in the long run, they protect their citizens, which is the first and most sacred duty of any nation state.

    Historically, the KGB is far better known for taking the lives of Russian citizens than for protecting their lives.

      The history is not at issue here. In a war the object is to destroy the enemy by whatever means available and in so doing reduce the infrastructure and demoralize the citizenry. Bombing Dresden has its strategic, tactical and psychological place as does the nuclear attack on Japan. We were not meant to be loved but to be victorious. As it turns out, Germany and Japan evolved into democratic allies and it is therefore safe to observe that we did something right.

      Dear Kishke:

      True. I thought of the same thing myself. But you have to speak to people in a language they understand. In this case, I agree with Mr. Brandt.

      Never thought I was say this but good for the KGB

        The KGB speaks only one language. It happens to be the language understood by Arab terrorists. They spoke the same murderous language, however, when liquidating and oppressing vast numbers of Russian citizens, among them many, many Jews.

          Kishke:

          I was wrong to write that the KGB protects its citizens. They are, as you wrote, fascists. My central point is that KGB tactics when fighting jihadists should not be discounted.

            Those tactics should be emulated unless our defeat is ‘our’ goal.

              Follow up thought:
              Some of our ‘leaders’ want to feel morally superior to ‘our’ enemies. Not me. Senator McCain and his crowd, and that he personally suffered is of no interest, nor is of consequence, when protecting us is; the goal. Whatever it takes. We should not be high minded when confronting these destructive stinkers, just get the job done.

            I understood your point, Robert, and intended no criticism. My point is that their response in this case is part and parcel of their institutional identity. They respond brutally because they are brutal. They match the barbarisms of the Muslims becaue they are barbaric. We respond differently because we are different from them, and that difference is something to be valued. This is not to say we should be soft on our enemies. Not at all. But we should not try to match them in wickedness. By doing so we run the risk of becoming wicked ourselves.

    Some of you have probably seen the movie “Rules of Engagement” in which an officer in Vietnam saves his comrades by threatening to shoot an NVA officer in the head. In Iraq, US army officer Allan West was dismissed for a similar incident in which the Iraqi was not injured but was threatened. We have become Bambi.

    Back in the 60s, Star Trek popularized the “Federation Way”: hold the phaser to the klingon’s head, and then pull it away at the last moment and say, “It’s not the Federation way to kill our enemies. Peace!” and the Klingons or romulans or whoever would be agog with grudging admiration and they would part in peace, until the drugs wore off and they came back to try to get us again. The Federation/American/European way is based on the Xian concept turn the other cheek. I think Torah law is, if someone is coming to kill you, kill them first. You will not be admired for being compassionate when you should have been cruel; you will be held responsible for all the deaths that follow your weak, misbegotten “kindness.”

      Dear rsbr: That’s exactly what the Halacha says. If someone comes to slay you, slay him first.

      Did you ever see the movie BLACK SUNDAY? Remember what happens when the Israeli commando doesn’t shoot the Arab woman terrorist?

    It occurs to me that Congress could address the issue (rather than wait for the president to finish his golf game), by granting Letters of Marque against ISIS, and anyone bearing arms or supplying funding for it.

    Just one more example why Vladimir Putin is the leader of, if not the free world, our part of it that matter. This give me no pleasure to write, but I do not deplore his methods. Kill, castrate, maim, destroy the bastards. Total war. As in our campaign ultimately against the axis powers. As for the Comrade Chris (Matthews) and Kristina Van Den Heuvel crowd, cut them off intellectually. At the knees.
