"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

Showing pictures of the 15 sailor and marine hostages was simply ourageous.

Jack Kelly writes, "Patricia Hewitt, Health Secretary in Tony Blair's cabinet, was upset by pictures broadcast from Iran of the 15 captive British sailors and marines, reported Christopher Booker of the Sunday Telegraph."

So what was it the she felt was so deplorable? Was it because Iran was breaking Geneva Convention rules by showing photos of the captured hostages? Was it because they humiliated the female sailor by making her wear Islamic garb?

"No" would be the correct answer to both.

So what was it then that got Ms. Hewitt all up in arms?

"It was deplorable that the woman hostage should be shown smoking," Ms. Hewitt said. "This sends completely the wrong message to our young people."

Oh, Dear God, help us all!!
