Kidnapping for jobs

Ok, am I the only one that finds this kind of thing funny? Palestinian gunmen briefly kidnapped an American and a British journalist on Wednesday as the pair drove through the central Gaza town of Khan Younis [...] The men were abducted by a renegade group of militants who had formerly belonged to the ruling Fatah group, said Palestinian police chief Brig. Gen. Ala Husni. The kidnappers demanded that they be given jobs as officers in the Palestinian security forces, Husni said. We want to become enforcers of the law, so we are gonna kidnap people to blackmail the authorities to give us that job. Genius.
