Hostage Games

"Islamic militants" in Africa have threatened to kill a British hostage unless Muslim hate preacher Abu Qatada is released from prison.

“Most scholars are agreed that, in his dealings with captives, various policies are open to the Imam [Muslim leader]. He may pardon them, kill them, or release them...on ransom. [emphasis added]”
~ Averroes (d.1198)
