Monsters kidnap Polish (Polish-American?) woman in Iraq

Al Jazeera (maybe they should be renamed the Hostage Broadcasting Network) has broadcast a new video this morning from a previously unknown terrorist group in Iraq. The video has the usual hooded cowardly monsters standing in front of a flag, and with a hostage in a seat in front of them.

Today's hostage is an unnamed Polish or Polish American woman.

The monsters have said they'll hold her until their demands are met. They haven't threatened her life -- yet.

The group, calling itself the Abu Bakr al-Siddiq Fundamentalist Brigades, says that she will not be released until two demands are met. Al-Jazeera denies that the group has threatened to kill her but has not yet released the entire video.

First, the group demanded that all female Iraqi prisoners be released. The Coalition, though, has consistently denied holding more than two women since that demand was first made by The Army of Ansar al-Zawahiri, a group that had kidnapped the now released Italian aid worders Simona Pari and Simona Torretta.

The second demand by the group was that Poland withdraw it's troops from Iraq. According to Middle East Online news service Polish Defense Minister Jerzy Szmajdzinski has said "The Polish government is not in the business of meeting kidnappers'
