Oct 17 - 17 US Missionaries Kidnapped In Haiti
 

 

A group of U.S. missionaries and their family members was kidnapped by gang members in Haiti on Saturday as they were leaving an orphanage, just days after a team of U.S. officials visited the country and pledged support for its anti-gang measures, according to Haitian officials.

The group of up to 17 people were abducted near the capital of Port-au-Prince while on a bus headed to the airport, The New York Times reported, citing local officials. A voice message sent to multiple religious groups by Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries said its missionaries were on their way home from building an orphanage.

The message, obtained The Washington Post, says the mission’s field director is working with the U.S. Embassy. The field director’s family and one other unidentified man stayed at the ministry’s base while everyone else visited the orphanage.

“This is a special prayer alert,” the one-minute message said. “Pray that the gang members will come to repentance.”

The Post, citing organizations that monitor kidnappings in Haiti, said the missionaries were abducted by a powerful gang known as 400 Mawozo. Mawozo is known for targeting religious groups and controls parts of Ganthier, a town east of the capital where the group was seized on Saturday, the Post reported.

In recent months, its members have increasingly engaged in mass kidnappings involving buses and carloads of victims. In April, the gang kidnapped five priests and two nuns. prompting multiple Catholic universities and schools to close in protest.

At least 328 kidnapping victims were reported to Haiti’s National Police in the first eight months of 2021, compared with a total of 234 for all of 2020, according to a report issued last month by the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti known as BINUH.

A U.S. State Department spokesperson said officials were aware of reports on Saturday's incident.

“The welfare and safety of U.S. citizens abroad is one of the highest priorities of the Department of State,” the spokesperson said, declining further comment.

The incident comes just days after an entourage of U.S. officials held talks with leading Haiti's police chief and other top Haitian officials. The effort was led by Uzra Zeya, U.S. under secretary of state for civilian security, democracy, and human rights. The U.S. pledged $15 million to help reduce gang violence.

"The U.S. supports inclusive, Haitian-led solutions to Haitian challenges," Zeya tweeted last week. "I was heartened to meet w/ Haitian civil society leaders and learn about their vision for their nation’s future. We’re listening to Haitian voices, & civil society is essential for every nation to thrive."

Haiti, by most markers, is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. Political instability has heightened in recent months with the a*sassination of President Jovenel Moïse in July. In August, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake k*lled more than 2,200 people and destroyed more than 130,000 homes, along with roads and other infrastructure, according to the United Nations. Days later Tropical Storm Grace rolled across the country, dumping up to 10 inches of rain and causing widespread flooding.

His successor, Prime Minister Ariel Henry, has become embroiled in the investigation into Moïse's murder. And Henry's government is struggling to meet the needs of disaster victims.

Kidnappings have been on the rise, with gangs demanding ransoms that in some cases exceed $1 million, according to authorities.

Haitians trying to flee the battered country have found a mixed reaction from President Joe Biden's administration, which has struggled to respond to the arrival of thousands of Haitian migrants at the U.S. southern border. White House officials have warned Haitians not to try to come to the U.S. illegally. And Biden's advisers have relied on a Trump administration policy, adopted during the pandemic, to send Haitians back to their country without allowing them to make an asylum claim.

The U.S. special envoy for Haiti, Daniel Foote, resigned his post last month over what he called the Biden administration's "inhumane" decision to repatriate thousands of Haitian migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.

That’s not true at all. They just blame it on the devil or “free will”, even though there’s nothing about it in the Bible.

Hold on...Are you making a point that excludes the absolute truth of my statement?

NO ONE, who reads the BIBLE can think that the God of Abraham isn't going to let bad things happen to them...

Now, that's a fact. So, what are you exactly saying?

Haiti is a sh*t show. The area the kidnapping happened was down the road from my uncle's house. The gangs went door to door and force hundreds if not thousands out of their homes. The same just happened to my cousins in another part of the nation. Like it or not those charities feed a lot of those abandoned children. The only reason my cousin wasn't k*lled was because he use to feed the poor and one of those gang members remembered him. While people on social media in the US blame the Clintons or any other goofy conspiracy. Haiti is run by 7-10 major families and they control everything down there. The gangs do some of the families bidding. We send barrels every month so my fam can feed the poor, but the sh*t is getting worst. Another family we know who does the same had all of the supplies they sent taken by gangs and those clowns are harassing them now for more this month. None gang members need to arm themselves and put these gang members in the ground.
