Yvonne Ridley is gloating via Twitter over the plight of Gilad Shalit, the Israeli who was kidnapped by Hamas terrorists in a 2006 cross-border raid.
For Ridley, a journalist who was held hostage by the Taliban and subsequently came to advocate Islamism, to celebrate the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit by Hamas is a new low for her. It's not only ironic; it's hypocritical, pathetic and disgusting. I can see why some say that she suffers from Stockholm Syndrome*. Now she not only appears to suffer from that illness, she actually advocates it.
(*Stockholm Syndrome is the paradoxical development of reciprocal positive feelings between hostages and their captors, which is said to enhance the hostages' ability to cope with their captivity.)
