Iraqi kidnapping ring:"Stealing money from Christians is OK"

From the Christian Post:
Iraqi police in Kirkuk have captured all four members of a gang of brothers who specialized in kidnapping Christian doctors.

The men, who appear to have no link to terrorism or Islamic extremism, were arrested in a number of raids between Dec. 11 and Dec. 13. All of the men have confessed to kidnapping doctors.

According to AsiaNews, the men said they started kidnapping Christian doctors to “make easy money.” Furthermore, they added, "according to sharia (Islamic religious law), taking money from a Christian is legitimate.”
