Al Qaeda in Iraq Beheads 2 More On Video

Rusty, as usual, is on the case.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s al Qaedi in Iraq terrorist organization has released a video of the beheading murders of two Iraqi civilians. The victims identify themselves in the video as Ali Hussein Jassem Mohammad al-Zubaidi and Ahmad Alwan Hussein al-Mahmadawi. Graphic Images from the video are posted below.

The video begins with the taped ‘confession’ of the two victims who admit to the ‘crime’ of being truck drivers for a Lebanese firm servicing a US base in Ramadi. After the taped ‘confession’ the two are taking outside where they are slowly beheaded with a knife.

Rusty has a link to the video.

I must confess, I’m growing increasingly less aware of what these people are trying to accomplish. The first beheading got lots of traction but after there are too many to keep track of, you reach the point where the only logical conclusion is that they simply enjoy beheading people.

It is doubtful the American broadcast media will even cover this tonight. I suppose it will get some play in Lebanon. But there is an interesting paradox…. Even when Arabs and Muslims are being beheaded, no one in the Arab/Muslim world has any sense of moral outrage.

After 9/11, it was easy to hate all Muslims. Then as cooler heads prevailed, it was easy to accept that it was just a radical wing of a perfectly good religion. Sadly, I can no longer make the intellectual case that Islam is anything but a murderous cult who will slaughter their own as well quickly as they would an “enemy.”

I’d like to be proven wrong… but after 3 years of watching this behavior closely and not seeing any moral outrage from the Muslim community, I can draw no other conclusion.

Update As usual, Shit for Brains takes the quotation out of context. I’m not sure whether he is just trying to be annoying or if he really is that stupid. I’m voting both.

Oh, That Conservative Media
