Christian peace activists in Iraq

Four peace activists - Norman Kember, 74, of London; Tom Fox, 54, of Clear Brook, VA; and Canadians James Loney, 41 and Harmeet Singh Sooden, 32, were kidnapped in Iraq. The kidnappers demanded the release of all prisoners.

Today is the deadline. It seems the world all over is asking for the release of the hostages. It is midnight and no word has come out yet.

If the world is the result of our collective consciousness, and if the majority of the world seek for the release of the four hostages, then perhaps they will be released. That is what I would hope for.

At least, we see another kind of Muslims who come forward. They come forward to ask for the release of the hostages. Too often, the media has portrayed Muslims as extremists, fanatical, something to be feared of. Now, we know there is another side to it.

Let us pray for those four people who risked their lives seeking a peaceful resolution.
