Skip to comments.12 (Nepalese) Hostages Killed (beheaded by AQ animals in Iraq on video)
Posted on 08/31/2004 4:20:47 AM PDT by mhking
Twelve Nepalese hostages have been beheaded by their captors in Iraq.
The hostages were kidnapped by the Islamist Army of Ansar al-Sunna, which has shown a video of the slaughter.
The footage, which apprears on the army's website, show militants apparently slitting the throats of their hostages.
A statement on the website said: "We have carried out the sentence of God against 12 Nepalese who came from their country to fight the Muslims and to serve the Jews and the Christians ... believing in Buddha as their God."
If you want on the list, FReepmail me. This IS a high-volume PING list...
WTF 12 people slaughtered
IS THERE ANY ONE THEY WONT KILL?
Why their just captors or militants. </sarcasm>
wow..that toon really sez it all.
When are we going to reciprocate in kind with this slime? We will not because we are civilized. Some days I fear that being civilized will not get the job done. I'd like to see these vermin beheaded and tossed into a vat of pig renderings on video. Maybe when the others see that, it would remove their thoughts of paradise and send them scurrying into their rat holes forever. Let's start with a religious leader or two.
I know my thoughts are uncivilized, but we aren't dealing with humans.
Have the moderator remove my comment if I went too far.
Militant Islam must be eradicated as the cancer it is.
The Nepali Maoists are also into beheading and dismemberment, but they don't videotape it or call it the work of God.

"They are not people but bloody animals"
But try to understand them. They are just trying to defend their country...or they are justcarrying out their own cultural practices.. This will be a lib's opinion of the whole "matter". We don't need someone who thinks like this for our president.
I see no good reason to keep it around. Here, at home, we have the black wing. It seeks to overthrow the "white" government. It preys on its own, and will whip them into a frenzy, to hate... anybody but another muslim...
We have the imported wing. They build mosques, as trainging centers for their jihadists. They are welcomed, as "religious" brothers. They are not our brothers.
When will the sheeple wake up? The Crusades were just the beginning. They did not finish it!!!
Great cartoon. I vehemently AGREE...at the risk of being called armchair general etc by the bots.
In his convention speech on Thursday, President Bush should point out that even countries that aren't all that eager to help the United States have become victims of terror.
For example, we have the French journalists who were kidnapped by terrorists who demanded France change their law about Muslim attire. Now we apparently have 12 Nepalese citizens murdered even though Nepal refused America's request to send troops to Iraq. And then we have a country like Spain that has sent a message to terrorists that it can be intimidated and blackmailed into doing what the terrorists want them to do.
The Democrats would have voters believe that America and its allies are more at risk for taking a hard line against the bombers and murderers. However, this recent evidence suggests otherwise. Just like schoolyard bullies, terrorists prey on the weak.
If these 12 murders actually did occur, Nepal should respond by sending troops into Iraq as soon as possible to kick some terrorist ass.
By the way, Fox News Channel's Kiran Chetry was born in Nepal. Today in that country, there are many Kiran Chetrys who need your prayers.
I guess we wouldn't want to wake people from their stupor by pointing out how many people have been beheaded, just since 9/11 even.
IIRC Nepal is home of the Gurkhas, some of the fiercest and most respected fighters in the annals of the British Army. Methinks the Islamists may have ticked off the wrong bunch of mountain dwelling, kukri swinging, tough little SOBs.
I foresee a minor realignment of British troop assignments.
Well, these people are surely making an effort to keep the Iraqi populace cowed and terrorized, if nothing else.
Muslim terrorism needs to become unacceptable worldwide. Too bad so many, such as the American and European Left, think it can be used to their advantage.
Nice job smearing Americans, dude. It's an Iraqi decision - not one I agree with, but at least place the blame where it belongs.
Let's be fair now. One man's hostage beheader is another man's freedom fighter.
You are correct in thinking that the Gurhka regiments of the Royal Army are raised in Nepal. India also raises some there.
I think that Mr Blair should consider a realignment of Her Majesty's Army to move some of those very tough troops to Iraq to replace other infantry.
Furthermore, I did not draw the cartoon.
Finally, that is what happened, and that cartoon
reported what did happen as PC overcame the correct response.
You didn't draw the cartoon?!? No, really?!? Gee, thanks.
Yes, are these Ghurkas by any chance?

BTW, you seem to have forgetten that the first step to escaping a trap
is to recognize you are in one.
America's present trap is political correctness.
Iyad Mansoor, director-general of the Morning Star Company, a Jordan-based services firm which had contracted the 12 Nepalese workers for jobs in Iraq, said he had no information on the beheading of the Nepalese captives.
"I'm shocked to hear such news," he told AP. "The last I heard was that the Nepalese government was in contact with Iraqi clergymen and others in an effort to set the 12 men free."
Jaish Ansar al-Sunna said on August 23 it had kidnapped 12 Nepali citizens "for their cooperation with the United States in fighting Islam and its people" and described them as working for a Nepalese company that works under a Jordanian firm doing business in Iraq.
Last week a videotape was aired on the Arabic-language television network Al-Jazeera purportedly showing the 12.
Okay everyone, calm down. John Kerry says the threat of terrorism is exaggerated. This is just a little quirk. < /sarcasm >
Islam is the evil cancer; militant Islam is but one symptom.
Bingo! See my post #34.
I object. There is absolutely no basis for that comment. Losing a dozen soldiers is not the same as losing the entire war.
You want proof? The Creator is NOT the God of confusion, but the God of perfect majesty and power. As much wealth as the oil-producing islamite countries amass, they are SO disorganized, SO confused in their goals, they FAIL to conquer or accomplish anything of significance. Countries with little or no similar resources of wealth, but who are openly dependant upon the Sovereign for their survival by far outpace the islamites.
I think the cartoon is right though --- we're being too careful of their "holy places" when those are the centers of terror.
Yes, but they serve mostly in British and India army. Their own army is rather small and they are fighting with communist guerrillas.
That cartoon, as sad as it makes us feel, is the truth. Thanks for the post.
Military leaders should give the islamites an ultimatum: clear ALL hostiles from "holy" sites within 72 hours or they will be forever flattened. If the citizens consider their sites to be so "holy", they'll remove those offenses by their own hands. If not, well, they were warned. The next shot from a masque would be its last.
arent ghurkas what afghani women use to wear?
how fierce could that be? :)
I think we should turn the tables on them when they have hostages they're about to behead. Tell them release the hostage immediately or one of their "holy" buildings gets leveled. If they behead the hostage the building should go. A human life is more valuable than their satanic worship places.
It would also "encourage" the general populus to "rat" out the abductors so they could be dealt with accordingly.
A strong response will command their respect.
She's nice to look at. I wonder what ever happened to Jennifer Eccleston on FOX. She was nice to look at, also.
Dr Harith al-Dhari, Secretary General of the Association of Muslim Scholars (AMS), the leading Sunni Islam religious authority in Iraq, strongly condemned the execution.
"Speaking from [a] religious and humane point of view, I was the first among those calling on the kidnappers to release the hostages," he told Aljazeera.
"We are against killing hostages, particularly if it has been a group execution. Those 12 Nepalese hostages are simple people. They might have been deceived to serve the occupation forces," he said.
"I wish they had not been treated so cruelly like that."
He also called on fair treatment irrespective of religion and creed. "Through Aljazeera, I call on all groups who 'claim' they are resistance and Islamic groups to be more merciful, just (fair) and humane while dealing with captives despite their religion, trends and reasons behind their presence in Iraq," he said.
Ignored by the media?
Deads are numbers. But deads, whose pictures are shown, are individuals. They let us feel their pain by our imagination. No matter whether one watches these horrible scenes or not, the terrorists wanted to let us know their terrible crimes, to deter others from going to Iraq.
Let them demonstrate the uses of the khukuri.
