Skip to comments.UN Ambassador Samantha Power’s bizarre tweet on the Islamist beheading of Daniel Pearl
Posted on 02/25/2014 5:10:59 AM PST by SJackson
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power tweeted early Monday morning that, Daniel Pearls story is reminder that individual accountability & reconciliation are required to break cycles of violence.
Pearl is the Wall Street Journal reporter who was abducted in Pakistan four months after Sept. 11, 2001. Al-Qaida leader Khalid Sheikh Mohammed slit Pearls throat and sawed his head off on camera, after forcing the reporter to read that My name is Daniel Pearl. Im a Jewish American from Encino, California, U.S.A. My fathers Jewish, my mothers Jewish, Im Jewish. My family follows Judaism. Weve made numerous family visits to Israel.
Pearl was 38.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Seems to me acknowledging ones faith before having your head chopped off constitutes individual accountability. Once your head is chopped off, reconciliation is difficult. Samantha might not know that since she still has her head, filled with who knows what. As to breaking cycles of violence, probably better to make the terrorists take individual responsibility rather than the victims. Isn't that what her boss' drones are for
It just reminds me that Islam is a vile culture and the world would be far better off without it.
wow. what a moron. another smartest person in the room.
Gotta love the empty buzzwords.
That leftist sorry-a$$ piece of crap should shut her mouth. The only appropriate thing to say about Pearl’s murder is that it was perpetrated by bearded subhuman savages screaming ugly slogans while religious music played in the background and video cams recorded the whole thing to be broadcast for fellow subhuman savages to enjoy while munching on halal popcorn.
doesn’t anyone in this gub mint of obammy even like America???
What a bunch of a-holes, the entire lot.
All the liberals / progressives that are cheering for socialism and Islam have never lived under it. Meanwhile those who have lived under it (as in Egypt and the Ukraine) have had violent uprisings to remove it. When you topple every single Lenin statue in a country that’s probably a good indicator that soialism isn’t a “people-friendly” form of government.

@AmbassadorPower To what "cycle of violence" are you referring? The man had his throat cut for being a Jew.
AG @AG_Conservative Feb 23
.@AmbassadorPower @DanielPearlFNDN Can you elaborate? What should Pearl have been accountable for? Should he have reconciled with Al Qaeda?
SunnyRight @sunnyright Feb 23
@AmbassadorPower Reconciliation? With people who cut his head off because he's Jewish and American? They referred to him as "the Jew".

@AmbassadorPower Please explain this word soup. Was Pearl UNaccountable?@DanielPearlFNDN

.@AmbassadorPower Daniel Pearl's story reminds me that some evil bastards will behead an innocent person simply because he's a Jew.

Rick Wilson @TheRickWilson Feb 23
@AmbassadorPower How, precisely, does on reconcile with medieval savages who traffic in videotaped decapitation porn?
AdiosPiers! @SooperMexican Feb 23
Hopefully @AmbassadorPower is just stringing together liberal claptrap wordsalad, because if she means anything intentional, she's insane...
★♥ Harriet Baldwin @HarrietBaldwin Feb 23
In which @AmbassadorPower proves govt ignores terrorist Fuqra cells in US - and blames the "Jew" @DanielPearlFNDN for his own demise. #Evil
John Hinderaker @jhinderaker Feb 23
@AmbassadorPower @DanielPearlFNDN What on Earth are you talking about? That made no sense at
Tom O'C @teeocee Feb 23
I'm thinking a bad coke binge. @SooperMexican @AmbassadorPower
Kelly Maher @okmaher Feb 23
@AmbassadorPower WHAT!?!?! No. You're missing the point in such a spectacular way that you land in a different universe @DanielPearlFNDN
Mrs. Dr. Noisewater @politicsofamy Feb 23
@SooperMexican She's a ginger. We r soulless, completely irrational and borderline fun crazy @AmbassadorPower
Razor @hale_razor Feb 23
@AmbassadorPower What specific steps would you have taken to avoid meeting his fate once captured? Or are you blaming the victim for that?
PVT Russell Ziskey @Crapplefratz Feb 23
@SooperMexican @AmbassadorPower I thought Daniel Pearl was beheaded by Islamic Terrorists because he was an American Jew.
I’m sure some do, though they’d be hard to ferret out amongst his appointments.
Hopefully @AmbassadorPower is just stringing together liberal claptrap wordsalad, because if she means anything intentional, she’s insane...
What are the chances she will get less criticism over these vile comments than Ted Nugent received over his? /rhetorical
This was years ago Pearl was murdered I am not sure what Powers point today is but is seems like most liberals, she is living in her hated past.
Its not at all bizarre for her to anyone who has paid attention. She hates Israel and Jews.
You're right that is the best one, but why even mention Daniel Pearl, unless she is trying to say it's okay for Muslims to kill Jews. America doesn't care. It must have been Daniel Pearl's fault, he had his head cut off.
Russia has pinned the tail on the Soros/ NGO donkey and decided the USA is a shameless proxy for world wide moslem domination. The destruction of Libya, the Arab Spring, the downfall of Syria and now the chaos in Ukraine (where all Russian Gazprom pipelines pass on their way west) are nothing more than plays to install the arab/qatar pipeline as the only remianing viable one. It's not just the trillions of petro dollars that are at stake it is the vice like control of the citizenry that is needed.
This is what happens when you let elections get stolen by electronic voting machines.
Samantha is a kind of handsome irish gal who should be working for Al Jazeera.
That’s the Bill Ayers/70’s Radical default position.
No matter what happens, always blame the JOOOOO.
She doesn’t use hers, so she must have figured that it was optional for Daniel Pearl.
Parenthetically, is she by any chance part horse? Her face suggests it. Somebody’s got to be ugly now that Helen Thomas is no longer around.
