Warren Weinstein was kidnapped in Pakistan by al-Qaeda in August, 2011. In December, 2011, Al-Qaeda said they wanted a prisoner exchange. One of the prisoners they wanted released was the blind Sheikh.
Warren Weinstein appeared in a video recently released by his captors. In the video (not posted here), Weinstein appealed to Prime Minister Netanyahu for help.
“Unfortunately President Obama and the American government have shown no interest in my case,” Weinstein says in the video, seated on a chair with his back slightly slouched, wearing a thin white t-shirt.
“Therefore, as a Jew, I’m appealing to you, Prime Minister Netanyahu, the head of the Jewish state of Israel, one Jew to another, to please intervene on my behalf.”
