Nick Berg's Father and International A.N.S.W.E.R.

Posted on 05/11/2004 9:17:11 PM PDT by clandradio

Slain contractor Nick Berg's father was a signatory on International A.N.S.W.E.R.'s "Call to Action" on March 20, 2004, to "End colonial occupation from Iraq to Palestine."

While my own personal outrage for his murder can only be matched by prayers for the family I cannot help but wonder if his father will wind up on Larry King Live denouncing the War on Terrorism.

(I discovered this while searching for a Web site for his consulting business. Kudos to doug from upland for posting the original list.)

There is more to this story than meets the eye. The odds of us ever knowing what was going on: virtually zero.

Here's a Nick story at http://www.jta.org

Was he a Jew? I haven't heard that on the media.

I would not put it past anyone of the A.N.S.W.E.R. persuasion to use the grisly execution OF THEIR OWN CHILDREN to further their communist agenda.

Damn them all. If it wasn't for talk radio and FR, I would not know anything. The Nick in the video also doesn't look like the family photo released. It is on another thread.

Family angry with US government over son’s beheading

"..Berg’s mother, Suzanne, said her son was in Iraq as an independent businessman to help rebuild communication antennas. Berg owned a communications equipment company, Prometheus Methods Tower Service Inc., she said..."

From the list on the linked thread by doug from upland:

" Michael S. Berg, Teacher, Prometheus Methods Tower Service, Inc.,"

Very likely the same Michael S. Berg on the petition. Nick was probably following in his father's business or took it over from him.

Indeed the father will be on King's propaganda are us show. He is already blaming the President, not the terrorists for his son's murder.

Maybe he wasn't like his dad but there were some questions surrounding why this guy was in Iraq... could it be that he was there for the same reason the Japanese activists-turned-hostages were in Iraq and things didn't go as planned?

Actually, I doubt it. King, the media, etc., will not show this guy. His links to ANSWER will prevent it. The conservative response is all too readily predictable, and if there's -one- thing the media will not risk, it's actually having to report honestly on International ANSWER and what it means to be a member.

That's my prediction anyway. This father will get no airplay. Let's see who's right.

PREDICTION: Michael Berg will be showcased at the International A.N.S.W.E.R. rally in DC, LA or SFO on June 5th and the media will take a pass on mentioning that even now International A.N.S.W.E.R. says on it's website:

Having achieved their victory, however, the occupiers now confront a people who have a long and proud his- tory of resistance. The anti-war movement here and around the world must give its unconditional support to the Iraqi anti-colonial resistance.

"Unconditional Support" is unconditional. Therefore, A.N.S.W.E.R. supports those who killed Nick Berg. And Michael Berg supports A.N.S.W.E.R.

I downloaded the video from Ogrish which is an excellent source for what our government doesn't want us to see. I find it seditious not to show the video of this young man being murdered for the crimes of being an American and a Jew.

Possible, but the younger generation often rebels against their parent's beliefs. Right now its quite common to have college kids and recent graduates who are far more conservative than their liberal, screaming, doped up, self-indulgent, latchkey parenting, ex-hippie, Boomer parents.

Danny Pearl was Jewish and a few talk radio hosts have speculated on the name. But you don't see the main stream media addressing the question. I would suspect it's because they are already ideologically friendly with anti-Semites in the region. Hey, it's only the other side that that's ever racist, greedy, stupid, etc.

I personally handed information on ANSWER and the other front groups to a Washington Post "reporter" and to this day he's still blowing sunshine up the readership's ass about the ANSWER and it's rallies.

Nick was safe while he was being held by the military. His dad filed the lawsuit stateside to have him released. The Iraqi police had already fingered him (they knew his ethnicity, nationality and his Iraq address) and collected the reward from Al Qaeda, imo.

Hey, Worker's World Party and ANSWER's head commie Brian Becker and gal pal Mara, who plays Natasha to his Boris Badenov, would be slaughtered just like Berg if they fell into the hands of these terrorists. They wouldn't care how much good Brian and Mara did for their cause or that Boris and Natasha, I mean Brian and Mara, love them and hate America. All that matters is that Brian and Mara are Americans and that's enough to get them killed by terrorists.

Hell,...ANSWER, UFPJ, CodePinko, none of them realize that part of the police presence at their anti-war rallies is to protect them against the people they are marching to help out. Again, all they bad guys want is dead Americans, and any American qualifies.

The media certainly doesn't mind letting us know when a "Right Wing Extremists" attacks a minority person. The Catholic nuns are now being attacked. Are the Jews, Catholics and Republicans the only people who commit crimes?

I don't agree with you there. The Islamists are in open alliance with the Far Left. They wouldn't be killed. It may not be the happiest alliance in the world, but it -is- an alliance. For now, it's convenient that it be so, and they probably will believe it to be convenient until we (i.e. patriotic Americans, whatever) are dead or at least totally out of power. Only -then- will the Left and the Islamists attack each other - and then the Left will nuke the hell out of the Middle East.

Oh come on! Qwinn!

They have pulled out all the stops! Bush must go is their mantra and no morality or fear will stand in their way.

The only thing that will stop them is a declaration of martial law and the suspension of the constitution.

Don't ever think they have any compassion or sense, cuz they don't.

"Don't ever think they have any compassion or sense, cuz they don't."

Compassion they utterly lack. Same with ethics, morality, any sense of proportion, or respect for law.

But "sense"? I think of it as cunning. And don't ever for a moment believe the ones running the show on the Left aren't cunning. And I'm not talking about Democrats here, I'm talking about their masters. And ANSWER is much too close to the masters. They'd sacrifice a hundred Daschles and Kerrys before they'd ever risk a true public scrutiny of themselves.

Think about their policy of incrementalism, and how much of their agenda they have managed to enact even in our own country, never mind the rest of the world. If they're as stupid as you say, well, then how stupid are we to let them have become so successful?

You would be foolish to misunderestimate them. Evil and vile they are, stupid they're not.

I stand behind my prediction. This father will not get major media attention.
