Alan Johnston is Free

Alan Johnston, the BBC reporter who was taken hostage in Gaza, has been freed by Hamas forces. I truly believe, and CNN speaks of it, that the only reason Hamas decided to do something was that they sorely need some good publicity.

The captors - the Army of Islam - have been connected to Fatah; which is curious since Abbas was not able to do anything about it. There is no mention of what the military operation to retrieve Johnston was like - probably because the media is grateful to Hamas and doesn't want to publicize the event.

Either way, I'm glad he's safe and unharmed.
