Why there is no negotiations with Islamist terrorists

Another little piece from our favourite head lopping group of brave Mujahadeen. Now I think that this may help get the concept that these groups are beyond the stage of negotiation through.

Quote:
“What is laughable is the insistence of the ministers of all infidel nationalities on the phrase ‘no negotiations’. As if there was any question of negotiation. Far from it - they must obey the demands of the Mujahadeen. If you refuse, we slaughter.”

They will murder, they will place outrageous demands on the table that cannot be met just so they can fufil their bloodlust. No negotiation - ever.

Anyone who is willing to murder completely innocent women and children shouldn't e trusted. Period.

Only a fool would trust a terrorists.

When these groups make their demands, will they be happy if we concede? NO.

Negotiating or conceding with the terrorists only strengthen their methods.

Thats my opinion, nbcrusader.

On the other hand, I heard the news today which said that the 2 italians got free and have returned to Italy, inofficially after the payment of money, Berlusconi welcomed them etc.

Anyway, I think you shouldn´t negotiate with terrorists. The question is rather, if there is any use. In the italian situation, it seems to be useful, at least for the hostages.

Hmm, I dont really know what to make of this.

If the Italians reallly payed off the terrorists then it suggests a different situation, i.e. thugs motivated by money and not religious hatred - but nontheless that money could be counterproductive.

Well who knows...

It is true, the Italian hostages were freed, there has been rumor of money being involved which certainly alters the situation - generally speaking the likes of Zaraqri are not motivated for monetary gain.

Well giving them money increases the risk for the future.
Now it's not only the extremists who hijack people down there but also the ones who do it for comercial reasons

"well done" italy

i think 2 lives for a million is rather cheap actually.


i still agree 100% on negotiations, dont get me wrong. but i am still struggling with this price tag or value we've been allowed to put on human life. it is revolting. i think it is the terrorist's greatest victory over the west and europe.

There was an interesting quote about this from Putin. People were asking him why he wouldn't negotiate with the Chechyans and he said something long the line of "You wouldn't consider negotiating with al Qaeda. why should we negotiate with terrorists?"

Of course, that opens a whole new can of worms when dealing with the situations in Israel and ireland.

There must be a distinction between nationalist and purely religious terrorism. The two do overlap in many instances but one must consider that nationalist groups ambitions are the motivation and their attacks are usually more targeted, purely religious terrorists are in it for the kill. One does not see a group like ETA commit homocide bombings against buses filled with schoolchildren or crashing letliners into buildings. The cost-benefit issue is important.

I just wish that the Italians told the terrorists that the money was right inside that darkened room, then knock them over the head with a lead pipe and keep them locked away for a long time.

True that, but imagine the situation that one of your loved ones was held as a hostage. Would you stick to the (possibly right) principle of not paying, or would you rather wish your government pays?

If someone of my family was held as a hostage - and I pray to God this will never happen - I would not care a dime about principles of what benefits terrorists generally. I would just want the people who I love to be free, regardless of what has to be paid.

So, it´s not that simple, or is it?
