UPDATE: Scroll down for update. Al Jazeera, the virulently anti-Western satellite television network, has aired a new tape of British Hostage Kenneth Bigley pleading for his life. Images from the tape are posted below. The video can be found at Global Terror Alert or by clicking this link. The new video is obvious propaganda intended to sway public sentiment in the UK against the ongoing coalition effort in Iraq. In it, al Jazeera quotes Bigley as saying

"Tony Blair is a liar - he doesn't care about me. I am just one person. My captors don't want to kill me."


According to Aljazeera, Bigley also accused Blair of not conducting any negotiations to free him, and urged the prime minister to work to release Iraqi women prisoners to save his life.
Understandably, Bigley and his family want everything done possible to keep him alive. Kenneth Bigley's mother and brother, though, have been doing the work of the terrorists for them--trying to lay the blame for Bigley predicament on Tony Blair. I am happy that Kenneth Bigley is still alive, but by negotiating with terrorists we legitimate their actions. Caving to terrorists can only lead to more hostages being taken and more beheadings

UPDATE: I have seen the video. In addition to what I've written above, Bigley asks the British government to negotiate. The French did, why not the British? He say's:

Mr. Blair says he will not negotiate with terrorists. The French have negotiated with these people to release hostages. I'm begging you. I'm begging you to speak and push Blair (raises voice), push Blair to help me."
The terrorists also watch the BBC. They are passing messages to Bigley that his mother is sick in the hospital and he pleads for the Brits to have compassion on his mother by working for his release.

These terrorists are even more sophisticated than I thought. They know exactly how to manipulate Westerners. Please do not be manipulated. Chin up. Do not negotiate with the terrorists. If you do, Bigley may be saved--but countless others may die.
