Gloating over the plight of a hostage

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.)

Ridley sounds like a total twit. I frankly don't know why anyone pays any attention to her. I guess maybe because she's colorful.
