Andrew Sotloff was the Jewish grandson of holocaust survivors. Despite this, he befriended Muslim Brotherhood terrorists who are descendants of Hitler’s allies. Sotloff, who is the latest American to be beheaded by ISIS terrorists.
As a reporter, Sotloff appears to have gotten access to terrorists by taking their side and reporting favorably about their efforts. In one instance, Sotloff mourned a dead FSA terrorist, calling him a ‘friend’ in a tweet several months prior to being kidnapped in August of last year (h/t Got News):
Sotloff supported the Arab Spring and loved Islam according to the UK Daily Mail:
The Jewish journalist – who held joint American and Israeli citizenship – spoke fluent Arabic and had a showed a deep love for the Islamic world before he was captured by ISIS militants in Syria in 2013. He was executed by them on Tuesday…
…‘A million people could have told him what he was doing was foolish, it seemed like it to us outsiders looking in, but to him it was what he loved to do and you weren’t going to stop him,’ said his friend, Emerson Lotzia. ‘Steve said it was scary over there. It was dangerous. It wasn’t safe to be over there. He knew it. He kept going back.’
That account would seem to square with an article written by Sotloff from Cairo in the days after the removal of Mohammed Mursi from power. Incorporated into his article was an account of a conversation he had with a friend who warned him not to go to the mosque where Muslim Brotherhood supporters were protesting. Sotloff told of how his friend was wrong and that the Muslim Brotherhood has legitimate grievances, as Shoebat.com reported.
