(Reuters Tv/Reuters)

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (Reuters) - The family of Nick Berg, the 26-year-old American civilian beheaded in Iraq (news - web sites), said on Tuesday they were devastated by his death.

In a statement read on the lawn of the Berg family's home in West Chester, Pennsylvania, 15 miles west of Philadelphia, neighbor and friend John Hauser described Nick Berg as "a great kid."

"The Berg family is devastated by this loss," the statement said. "They want to extend their sympathy to other families who have also suffered. They are asking the army to expedite the release of Nick's body so they can make arrangements and put this behind them."

Al Qaeda's leader in Iraq beheaded Berg and vowed more killings in revenge for the "Satanic degradation" of Iraqi prisoners at the hands of U.S. troops, an Islamist Web site said on Tuesday.

I thought the dim-o-crats said that Al Qaeda was not in Iraq and had nothing to do with Hussein or Iraq? How do they explain this?

Our response to this atrocity must be swift and clear.
Their prisoners were humiliated. This prisoner was brutally decapitated. There is no excusing this "in-your face" action on the part of the Al Qaeda Boy's Club.
Nuke 'em!

Note the family wants to "put this behind them." A very odd statement indeed. It just happened. And they are expressing sympathy to others who lost kids. The parents are 100% anti Bush and their congressman was in with them today. Supposedly Nick was pro Iraq war.

My point is, was there not a word of condemnation for those who killed him? I mean this wasn't even a close call, seeing your son murdered by fanatics that way.

Pa. family angry with American government over son's brutal death

By JASON STRAZIUSO
The Associated Press
5/11/2004, 2:34 p.m. ET

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — The family of an American civilian shown beheaded on an Islamic militant Web site huddled in in tears Tuesday after learning of the existence of the graphic videotape.

The video showed Nick Berg, 26, in a staged execution carried out by an al-Qaida affiliated group. The video said the killing was to avenge the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by American soldiers.

"My name is Nick Berg, my father's name is Michael, my mother's name is Suzanne," the man said on the video before being killed. "I have a brother and sister, David and Sara. I live in ... Philadelphia."

Berg's family said U.S. State Department officials on Monday had told them Berg was decapitated. The family, though, had wanted that information to remain private.

When told about news of the Web site Nick Berg's father, brother and sister, collapsed to the ground in a tearful hug in their front yard.

"I knew he was decapitated before," said the father, Michael Berg. "That manner is preferable to a long and torturous death. But I didn't want it to become public."

Michael Berg lashed out at the U.S. military and Bush administration, saying his son might still be alive had he not been detained by U.S. officials in Iraq without being charged and without access to a lawyer.

Nick Berg, a small telecommunications business owner, spoke to his parents on March 24 and told them he would return home on March 30. But Berg was detained by Iraqi police at a checkpoint in Mosul on March 24. He was turned over to U.S. officials and detained for 13 days.

His father, Michael, said his son wasn't allowed to make phone calls or contact a lawyer.

FBI agents visited Berg's parents in West Chester on March 31 and told the family they were trying to confirm their son's identity. On April 5, the Bergs filed suit in federal court in Philadelphia, contending that their son was being held illegally by the U.S. military. The next day Berg was released. He told his parents he hadn't been mistreated.

Michael Berg said he blamed the U.S. government for creating circumstances that led to his son's death. He said if his son hadn't been detained for so long, he might have been able to leave the country before the violence worsened.

"I think a lot of people are fed up with the lack of civil rights this thing has caused," he said. "I don't think this administration is committed to democracy."

The Bergs last heard from their son April 9, when he said he would come home by way of Jordan.

Berg had traveled several times to Third World countries to help spread technology, his family said. He had previously traveled to Kenya and Ghana, where they said he had purchased a $900 brick-making press for a poor village, the family said.

Berg's mother, Suzanne Berg, said her son was in Iraq to help rebuild communication antennas.

"He had this idea that he could help rebuild the infrastructure," she said.

Michael Berg described himself as fervently anti-war, but said his son disagreed with him.

"He was a Bush supporter," Berg said. "He looked at it as bringing democracy to a country that didn't have it."

Suzanne Berg said she was told her son's body would be transported to Kuwait and then to Dover, Del. She said the family had been trying for weeks to learn where their son was but that federal officials had not been helpful.

"I went through this with them for weeks," she said. "I basically ended up doing most of the investigating myself."

We may never know how much the family/father makes in the way of $ off the death of his son. I'm certain that the mainstream media and the DNC will be ready to open their checkbooks for dad's bitter rants against Bush.

And is anyone really stupid enough to believe they wouldn't have killed him anyway?

That is the deal with these savages. They try to cut your throat whether you are trying to kill them or feed them. So you might as well kill them.

The Pentagon practically pleaded with CBS News not to broadcast the Abu Ghraib photos.

They did anyway.

Al-Zarqawi told us Nick was beheaded to avenge the humiliation of Iraqis in Abu Ghraib.

If I were the Berg's, I would be filing a wrongful death suit against CBS, and I would open the bidding at about $300 Million.

they pushed Berg to the floor and shouted 'God is greatest' above his screams as one of them sawed his head off with a large knife then held it aloft for the camera.

But we're concerned about some Islamic Swine who was humiliated because some girl saw him undressed.

We're doomed.

The "revenge" is as authentic as when the media reports that dems are "outraged" by something. Al Queda obviously brutally used the prison story for publicity. If they had their way most Iraqis would be imprisoned or killed, they care zero for the prisoners. Only the idiotic left wing media would credit the word of Al Queda.

M00zlims cutting off peoples heads has been going on for 1500 years.

Anybody "shocked" by this brutal murder obviously doesn't know what we are dealing with.

Just wait until they start with the WMD in our cities.

They laugh at us over our concern about the prison "scandal".

They don't need a reason to chop somebody's head off.

Has anyone else noticed that those Iraqi prisoners appeared to be very complicit in their supposed Satanic degradation? I don't recall in any of the pictures seeing a one of the prisoners hand cuffed or their hands tied behind their backs. If I were in their position I would have been fighting those who were supposedly making me do those things. Remember they would give their lives for 72 virgins.

Somehow I feel the 5-7 military personnel involved in this were sympathetic to Muslims and with the help of these prisoners these photo's were all staged.

Am I the only one who feels this way?

Translated from Arabic

Sheikh Abu Mus'ab Alzrqawy slaughters an American with his hands and threatens Bush with more

A statement to the nation

The praise of Allah for all Muslims with his support and the humiliating of those who attempt to defeat Islam and who attack it and who entice the unbelievers with their cunning.

The one that appreciated the days countries with its justice and the prayer and the greeting on from above the Islam lighthouse by its sword as for after :

The Islamic nation

You rejoice at the first signs of the dawn that have started that have granted the wind of triumph. Allah was benevolent to us in Al Fallujah, granting us victory

On one of the days of Allah and that was known to Allah alone

The Islamic nation

Does any excuse for waiting remain? How the free Muslim sleeps, with his eyelids closed.

And he sees that Islam is slaughtered and can be seen bleeding its dignity

And the shameful pictures and the news of the evil humiliation of the Islam people men and women in Ghareb 's father prison then where the jealousy and where the zeal and where the anger about the Allah's religion and where the jealousy for the Muslims sanctities and where the revenge for the honors of Muslims and Muslims is in the crosses prisons .

As for you are the Islam clerics then to Allah we complain about you, you see that Allah have founded the argument on you by the Islam young man who humiliated the strongest force in the date then broke its nose and destroyed its pride

We came to you that you learn from them the reliance meanings and derive from their doing the lessons of sacrifice and redemption to when you remain as the women you master only the slapping language and know only the way of wail and weeping

Then this appeals the world freemen and this it begs Kofi Annan and a third begs Amr Moussa and fourth he demands peaceful demonstrations and as if they did not hear to his saying ( ( O you the prophet incited the believers to the fight ) )

You were fed up with the fight of the conferences and the oratorical battles ohm came to you that you take the jihad way and carry the sword that sent by it the prophets master

And we beg from you that you do not be involved as usual in the denial of what will do it satisfaction of the Americans

He has ordered the prophet - peace be upon him - and he is master the merciful are with the slitting of the necks of some prisoners and their slow killing

And for us it is an example and a good example

As for you, the Roman dog Bush, I hope you are displeased and we wait for you with God's Help tough days and you and your soldiers today who tred Iraq's land will regret it.

And she dared in it to the Muslims fever

And another message to traitor Pervez Musharraf then we say to him that we in wait for your meeting with your soldiers

We demand of the American and will take revenge for the blood of our brothers in and Iraq and elsewhere

And as for you and the Americans soldiers wife then we say that we offered to the American administration this prisoner in exchange for some of the prisoners in Abu Ghareb prison but they refused

Then we say but if the dignity of Muslims and Muslims in Abu Ghareb prison and others is worth theur blood and souls

we tell you to know that the coffins will arrive to you one coffin after another, as your people are slaughtered in this way.........

Then you kill the polytheists [i.e., trinitarians, i.e., Christians] where you find them and you take them and count them and place them where they can be seen.

Allah is the greatest and the honour to Allah and to its messenger and to the militants

And our last claim is that the praise of Allah is the Lord of the Worlds

It will be interesting to see what happens to "public opinion" (as molded by the US-hating leftmedia) over the next day or so, as the stark contrast of the manufactured "atrocity" of the "prisoner abuse scandal" compares with true barbarism. Part of that depends on how much of this video makes it into the public eye.

This is a point I hit home repeatedly and make crystal clear to those I argue with over the "justifications" of our incursion into Iraq. This is the true face of the enemy. Would we rather fight them in their backyards, or ours?

What would Al-Zarqawi done if the the prisoners in Aubu Ghraib were forced to wear tight Lassie costumes and drink out of silver doggie dishes? Al-Zarqawi should be beheaded. His head should be placed on a pike and displayed for all to see.

We still don't hear you!!!

We still don't hear that you declared war on us years ago.

We still don't hear that you intend to kill and maim us.

We still don't hear that you are bent on destroying our civilization.

Our Senators are too busy chasing the guys who scared an insurgent with their dogs.

Our news media are more concerned over Kobe Bryant's sex trial.

What did you say? Tell us again. We still don't hear you.

There's plenty of blame to go around. I think we can all agree that slitting an innocent man's throat is not an appropriate response to being shown photos of Iraqi prisoners being humiliated and/or physically mistreated.

"Nick Berg, a small telecommunications business owner, spoke to his parents on March 24 and told them he would return home on March 30. But Berg was detained by Iraqi police at a checkpoint in Mosul on March 24. He was turned over to U.S. officials and detained for 13 days. "

What's this about? Why was he detained and held? I'm not blaming anyone about anything, but I'd sure like to know the answer to this.

CBS isn't the only one running images. The Daily Mirror ran FAKE photos of British soldiers urinating on prisoners and the arab press ran front page photos that came from porn sites.

The arab world has seen more images (many fake) that Americans have not seen. I'll blame the media for this.

You must be in a dream world if you think that CBS aired these pictures for anything more than ratings and MONEY. They could care less about lives that will be lost - that just boosts their ratings more. Like I said. The men that committed the crime are going to answer for the crime. What about the participation of CBS? You actually believe in a time of war that the media should have unbridled freedom to put anything they get their hands on in front of the world? That is treason and anyone who says that CBS is not to blame for this mans beheading is living in wonderland.

I won't criticize them for being angry about the whole being detained thing. They view it as a govt snafu that contributed to his death. But I have not heard a syllable of criticism for those who cut off their son's head, and that is somewhat bizarre. Frankly, the cause and effect between being detained and then being taken hostage by Al Queda after release is tenuous at best. We may be witnessing the horrifying extreme to which leftism takes people. Excusing the murder of their own son by terrorists and blaming the U.S. government.
