Palestinian kidnappers piqued that Alan Johnston was ungrateful

Its not fair!! Just goes to show how hard it is to get some respect now days. Even kidnappers who threatend to kill their hostage are not appreciated as the nice guys and good hosts they are.

The kidnappers expressed bizarre resentment that Alan Johnston, 45, had done nothing to thank them for their hospitality while they held him at gunpoint in a tiny cell.

... Quote:
We used to give him everything he wanted. We spent 70 on his food every week. The Matouk restaurant [one of the best eateries in Gaza] got rich because we had to feed him.

It's not our problem that we gave him everything and he only ate a little.

Abu Zobayer, an aide to Dagmoush, said.

Johnston has said that he fell ill from the food he was served.

Although they did not torture him physically, the kidnappers seemed to have no concept of the psychological torture they were inflicting on the BBC correspondent.

... Quote:
We had people with him all the time to try to help him to relax. We gave him a radio so that he could listen to his own channel.

I myself sat with him to try to make him feel comfortable and feel that he will be released.
said Zobayer.
