A New Trend
By Micah Halpern

Friday October 27, 2006

I'm Predicting:

A new trend is emerging.
A Spanish photo journalist was kidnapped and released that same day in Gaza.
The kidnappers asked for a ransom of $250,000 US.
This kidnapping came not too long after the kidnapping of two Fox journalists.

Gaza is becoming like Baghdad and South America.
Roving gangs, hoodlums, no-goodniks, dangerous but unaffiliated with any group, movement or organization are using kidnappings as a source of easy money.

Many kidnappings are still politically motivated and organized by terrorist groups trying to achieve a political goal - but not all. More and more we will see kidnappings perpetrated by gangs and clans interested in making a quick buck.

Most of these new perpetrators/kidnappers were once part of the security system.
Kidnappers are now just common criminals with automatic weapons, terrorist training and even police knowledge because they were once on that side of the law.

Talk about being disillusioned.
