...and freedom tastes of reality...

Apologies to the Who, but the reality is the freedom Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal can now experience as they are free from the grip of the Islamic Republic of Iran.  The jizya has been paid, all one million dollars of it and the world will forget what happened here.

Islam won this one, and we helped them to victory by supporting the payment of the jizya.  It is cheaper to pay than to fight against it.  Eventually this policy will turn on us and we will be forced to defend ourselves because no amount of money will be enough to stop the jihad.

Iran frees jailed US hiker 'spies' Bauer and Fattal

The hikers' release has been negotiated against a backdrop of tension between Washington and Tehran

A pair of Americans convicted as spies and jailed in Iran for two years have been released and emotionally reunited with their loved ones.
Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, both 29, were flown to Oman after being freed on bail from Evin prison.
They were sentenced in September to eight years in prison on charges of spying.
They were arrested in 2009 after crossing into Iran from Iraq, where they said they were hiking.
'Healthy and strong'
"We are so happy we are free and so relieved we are free," Mr Fattal said to reporters soon after their arrival on Wednesday in the Omani capital, Muscat.
Mr Bauer added: "Two years in prison is too long and we sincerely hope for the freedom of other political prisoners and other unjustly imprisoned people in America and Iran."
"Unjustly imprisoned people" in America?  Why Bauer would say this is evident; he is still within the grasp of Iran and will hold his tongue until back on American soil.
Also waiting on the tarmac was Sarah Shourd, 32, a third US hiker who was with Mr Bauer and Mr Fattal when they were arrested.
Ms Shourd became engaged to Mr Bauer while they were in prison, before she was freed last year on humanitarian grounds and returned home.
Soon after he was reunited with his son, Mr Fattal's father told reporters: "They are healthy, happy and strong."
Iran's judiciary reportedly set each bail at five billion rials ($500,000). Oman paid bail of a similar amount for the release of Ms Shourd last year.
The Gulf state of Oman is a US ally which has good relations with Iran.

Of course the charges were false! Does anyone with even the slightest bit of common sense and intelligence, really believe that Iran/Ahmadinejad would have released anyone that they truly believed were spies?
As Barry says, "jizya has been paid" and America once again gives in to Islamic manipulation, bribery, and terrorism.
