Rifkind welcomes Uri’s offer of help
THE Foreign Secretary has welcomed an offer from psychic Uri Geller to help find four hostages, including two Britons held in Kashmir.
Malcolm Rifkind said he would be willing to listen to fresh ideas on how to find the men captured by separatists nearly two years ago.
Mr. Rifkind said: “Anyone, who in good faith and with good intentions, wants to help find the hostages should be welcomed.”
“If anyone believes there is a new initiative or idea that can be tried, I want to hear about it.”
The Foreign Secretary was speaking during a visit to Nottingham.
The hostages have not been seen for nearly a year.
Many feared they were dead after their Norwegian colleague Hans Christian Ostroe was found beheaded in 1995
Mr. Rifkind said: “We very much hope they are still alive and will continue to do so unless there is more conclusive proof they are dead.”

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
