TURKISH JOURNALIST - IRAQI INSURGENTS DO NOT DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN CHRISTIANS AND JEWS, AMERICANS AND CANADIANS



Zeynep Tugrul, a Turkish journalist, was handed from captor to captor over four days in northern Iraq.
"All those who held them, she said, were equally hostile to anyone they called kafir, or infidel. Again and again, they lashed out at Mr. Taylor, calling him a"Jewish pig" or an American spy.

"For them, there's no difference between a Christian and a Jew, a Canadian and an American," Ms. Tugrul said.
