Posted on 04/24/2007 11:13:42 AM PDT by KeydetSocrates
April 24, 2007 (RFE/RL) -- A disturbing video of a young boy beheading a Pakistani hostage has shocked and angered the Afghan public and international observers since it began circulating several days ago. Rights activists condemned the use of a child in the execution as "new low" -- even for an extremist group like the Taliban. In Afghanistan, it is unclear what effect the grisly video might have on militants' efforts to recruit sympathizers. more

No,, but if NBC gets their hands on it,,it’ll probably make prime time news.
“What will become of this little boy when he gets older?””
Islamic indoctrination is child abuse.
Wow, they can actually stoop low enough to even anger their own. I guess this is in a way good news.
What? A violation of child labor laws?
And I’m sure it will be Pres. Bush’s fault.
It’s the censored version though. Amazingly, even ogrish.com won’t show the uncensored version.
Dont bet on it. That kind of video makes the enemy look bad and that isnt NBC's agenda.
Well, when parents start cutting on little boys’ heads to celebrate a martyr, what’s going to happen later on?
Oh yeah. GW will be accused of driving the child-executioner to Islam because of the “No Child Left Behind” performance standards and lax gun, errh, machete laws and of course it is all timed to take the attention off his veto of the Iraq funding (ahem,,,Pork, Pork, Pork) bill.
My conspiracy theories pale in color and depth to those of the lost and looney left.
No,, but if NBC gets their hands on it,,itll probably make prime time news.
are you kidding me?, the taliban and nbc are allies, this tape will never be shown by the msm.of course if it was an american soldier chewing gum when he’s not supposed to then it will make front page news.
Glenn Beck was discussing this last night...
Since 9/11, Americans have become accustomed to learning about how savage our enemies are by reading about it in the paper or seeing video of a suicide bombing hours after it happens. Day after day we hear and read about beheadings and stonings and unimaginably barbaric acts, but we hardly ever see them. We’re not even allowed to see the World Trade Center collapse anymore. I could describe to you how this 12 year old boy hacked away at this man’s neck over and over as the crowd chanted “Allah Akbar;” or how he raised the man’s severed head in triumph once he hacked it off....but until you actually see it you have no idea what we’re really up against.
Unfortunately, the Real Story is that that video will never air in the United States. In fact, these pictures you see are all I’m allowed to show you of it. The media — including the network I’m on — says that showing it would just incentivize people to create more of them. Bullcrap. If that’s true, then explain to me why we would air the Virginia Tech shooter’s rambling manifesto just days after he massacred 32 people? We label that as “news” to make ourselves feel better about the ratings it’ll bring, when in fact it’s completely gratuitous and irrelevant; the event had already happened; the threat was over and the murderer was dead. Well, newsflash:
these Muslim extremists aren’t dead and their video isn’t gratuitous or irrelevant...it’s a warning. All of us, Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike have to see with our own eyes what these people are capable of doing; how far they’re willing to go.
Of course, we can continue to ignore it, just like we can ignore the Russian media calling us the enemy; or Iran getting cozy with al-Qaeda and Russia, helping terrorists in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan — but ignoring them doesn’t make them go away. Unlike us, our enemies aren’t afraid to be crystal clear about their intentions...the only problem is that we continually refuse to listen.
The father of Mr Nabi, who lives in Pakistan and who confirmed that his son was the man killed in the video, said his son had been a loyal member of the Taleban.
...insert tasteless comment concerning my lack of concern for a taliban.
Why is this shocking? This is typical behavior in that area.

I can never understand why people want to look at these things.
There is an edited version on liveleak.com
I wish it would make prime-time news. A good portion of America has been lulled into forgetting who the enemy is and how he behaves. HBO has Guantanamo documentaries, but will never go near something like this on the other side. It just doesn’t fit the anti-war agenda.
Probably Sen. Reid's home DVD collection, for late at night.
Know your enemy.
ogrish is now liveleak.com
I can't speak for anyone else,but *I* need to see this for the same reason I need to see,from time to time,the films of folks jumping from the 98th story of the WTC...I need to be reminded periodically of exactly what we're up against with this 9th Century death cult call the Religion of Pieces.
The branches of the tree of Islam have been chopped off, and are falling down a well of travesty, with no bottom or Imam in sight. Deeper and darker, and falling at an accelerating rate.
Are you suggesting that the Honorable Gentleman,and his wife,derive some sort of perverse pleasure......
Some things can't be fully understood unless witnessed. I've seen a lot of the beheading and execution videos from the muslim world, and now I have a hard time looking at muslims as quite fully human. I won't describe the things I saw, but such things are seldom done in the contemporary Western world. There are aberrations such as the Holocaust and continued use of the guillotine by the French. Civilization advances in the West, but many parts of the Eastern world are rushing headlong into the barbaric past.
Actually, you make a good point. This has more to do with national security than the VT nutball.
Better to see it now, on film than to see it up close and personal.
If you start a “barbarians” ping list, include me.
I'll answer that one...
If there is a God, this little murderer won't get much older...
I hear tell the youth was driven to this by GLOBAL WARMING!!!!
He'll run for Senate Majority Leader or Speaker of the House
We need to call them what they are. Islamo-fascists is probably best.
What will become of this little boy when he gets older?
He’s not gonna get much older. Any day now, they’ll be strapping a bomb on him to walk into a public place to blow himself up with. Then he can get his 72 vigins that he won’t have a clue what to do with...
I would force myself to see that video, just as I would force myself to view unedited video of the 911 mass murder.
There is simply no other way for the reality of the evil we're facing to sink in; and to react appropriately.
To not do that is to forever succumb to the subconscious cognitive dissonance, that it's too horrible to be true. It's simply an exaggeration in the geopolitical war...
Ogrish.com doesn't show any videos anymore, they are now liveleak.com
Islamic supremacist is the ideology.
Islamonazism is the brutality.
Islam is an empire governed by theocratic rule. The Koran makes distinctions between Islamic and non-Islamic terroritories. For instance, kufir (non-muslims) seized in jihad (physical holy war) must be taken back to an Islamic territory before they can be divided up as slaves.
Fascism has nothing on Islam, both are ugly political ideas. Mohammed was a warlord. It makes sense that his followers would wage wars around the world. They wage wars with one another to determine who the real heirs of Mohammed are. Royalty, power, control.
Toss this on the scrap heap of bad ideas, quickly!
“.extremism IS butting heads with the growing moderate populations.”
Let these “moderate” populations also condemn the slaughter of the three Christians in Turkey and I may just begin to believe that statement.
using children to commit murder has been going on for years and years in Africa - actually the practice of using children to do the dirty work of adult men is ancient
The nazis, communists, maoists- all used children as informers and worse
everyone gets all “shocked” that modern day islamiso fascists do this?
The last guillotining in France was that of torture-murderer Hamida Djandoubi on September 10, 1977.
Ooops, there goes another Muslim... ;-) You just can't get away from these guys and death/violence etc.
Glad to know that islamics are “starting” to wake up to how low islamic terrorists will stoop to use children in their murderous carnage spree.
Thanks for the link. I’ve forwarded to a bunch of non-freepers to view Islam at its best (sarc).
You are right and maybe all Americans should see those videos,especially the libs who think being nice,pelosi,will fix everything. I do fear whats down the road for this country.
