    "We were forced to convert to Islam at gunpoint,"

    Do these kidnappers actually believe people "convert" simply because the barrel of a gun is staring them down? Could it be they may actually lie :eek: and only pretend to embrace Islam?

    I guess it's more about the kidnappers saving face with the other Islamist groups in the area more than anything else. Now they can claim a victory since they converted two Westerners to the True Faith, and as the journalists have "repented" against their old lives, holding them is no longer necessary.

    What, they said they converted, so it MUST be true. Just like everything Nasrallah says must be true. :rolleyes:
