So, It's Not About Religion?

From BBC News World Edition:
Iraq captors 'free Turk hostages'
Three Turkish men kidnapped by militants in Iraq last week have been released, say Turkish government officials.

The men were apparently held by a group linked to a man said to be al-Qaeda's Iraq chief - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

A masked man in a video aired by Arab TV al-Jazeera said the men were freed because Turkey's Muslims had protested against the US.

The kidnappers had earlier threatened to behead the men.
