I wonder if at this very moment someone in a Muslim country asks something like "why do Western (colonial and post-colonial) powers and their corporations have cause so much trouble wherever they have been?"
By no means I defending any kidnapping, I'm absolutely again any of those actions and only hope it ends and all these people are released. It's a paradox that maybe in the future these kidnappers may be received as State chiefs, as it so often has happened.
And by no means I want to start any discussion, but just try to ask what they, Muslims/Islamist may think, as the other side of the coin. As a (catholic) Spaniard I cannot say we did not mess anything in South America in the past, for instance, so we all have our guilts.
Unfortunately, these travellers are paying the mess. And unfortunately, things do not seem to get any better.
