A world wide appeal has been initiated by the Bishop Marayati, Armenian Catholic, of Aleppo for the release of Fr Michael Kayyal who was kidnapped on 9th February 2013 by an Islamic rebel group located some 30 kilometres from the above-mentioned city.

The rebels have made contact with the Archbishop and informed him to mediate with the Syrian authorities with the aim of securing the release of 15 rebel fighters from Syrian prisons. The rebels also made financial demands to the tune of 15,000,000 million Syrian pounds ($250,000 approx).

On February 20, 2013 the rebels allowed Fr Michael to contact his mother for only one minute to prove that he is still alive.

The Armenian Cathiolic Community of Aleppo urges everyone to forward the  feelings to the  French and Russian Foreign Ministries and the following Facebook page: https://pt-br.facebook.com/SupportFrMichelKayal.
My gut reaction... don't pay them. Don't negotiate with them. It only would encourage more incidents like this, and show weakness.
15,000,000 million Syrian pounds?

That's 15 Trillion Syrian Pounds.

Who is negotiating here?  Dr. Evil?
The solution to piracy is well established.  it works well, but it is harsh. 
:pray2: We'll offer our intentions for this priest tonight.
Weren't there orders founded to free captives during the crusades, and didn't they raise funds for the release of these captives?  :pray2:
And Western nations are currently talking of intervening on behalf of these thugs. Disgusting.
That poor priest another victim of ecumenism. :helpsmiley: :helpsmiley: :helpsmiley: :helpsmiley:
Give me a swat team with high-power rifles, and we'll show the rebels how a Crusade starts  :draw:

Why pay $250,000 when it only takes about $25 of ammunition.

$25 dollars? Ammo is that cheap?
