Kate Burton and her parents freed by Gaza terrorists.

Kate Burton, 24, who was freed with her visiting parents late on Friday night intends to continue her anti-Israel labors..oh sorry, she said she "remains committed and passionate about working alongside the Palestinians", according to a statement issued via the Foreign Office in London.

As previously reported, Burton and her elderly parents had been abducted at gunpoint close to the Rafah border crossing into Egypt from the southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday, with a previously unknown group calling itself the Mujahadeen Bayt Al-Maqdes (Jerusalem) Brigades later claiming responsibility.

"We are in good health and have been treated extremely well through the ordeal," the statement from Burton and her parents said Saturday.

"We are glad that these last few days are over and we would like to express our gratitude to the Palestinian Authority, the British government and all groups and individuals in Gaza and worldwide who have been supporting us and working around the clock to secure our release."

Gee Kate if that's so,then why did you cross the border INTO ISRAEL after your release? Why not head back to those jolly Palestinians?

One little known factoid from a source of the FreedomFighter stated catagorically that the Burtons were only released after payment of a sizeable cash ransom, paid through British Intelligence M15's outpost inRafah and channelled through the Palestinian Authority to save face for all concerned.

Burton's statement added that she "plans to stay in the region and continue working with the Palestinian people," saying she wanted to help "alleviate the difficult conditions being suffered by the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip."

Stockholm much, Kate?

Earlier Saturday, a colleague of Burton's at the Al-Mezan Palestinian rights group said the work done by the Briton was vital.

"Kate's role is really very important," Ghada Snunu told BBC radio.

So what exactly does she do?

"She is responsible for contacting donors, writing reports to them, fund-raising, proposal-writing and editing English documents," Snunu said.

AHHH, she 's part of the MARKETING Department! No wonder the Pals wanted her back.
