    PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Michael Berg, whose son Nick was beheaded in Iraq in 2004, said on Thursday he felt no sense of relief at the killing of the al Qaeda in Iraq leader blamed for his son's death. Asked what would give him satisfaction, Berg, an anti-war activist and candidate for U.S. Congress, said: "The end of the war and getting rid of George Bush." The United States said its aircraft killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the insurgent leader who masterminded the death of hundreds in suicide bombings and was blamed for the videotaped beheading of Nick Berg, a U.S. contractor,...

    Filmmaker Moore Says He Has Berg Footage Associated Press NEW YORK - Filmmaker Michael Moore, whose incendiary new documentary lambastes President Bush's handling of the war, said Thursday that he has footage unused in the film of Nicholas Berg, the American civilian later beheaded in Iraq. The footage, of an interview with Berg, "is approximately 20 minutes long. We are not releasing it to the media," Moore said in a statement. "It is not in the film. We are dealing privately with the family." Neither Moore nor his representatives would describe the nature or contents of the interview with Berg,...

    When I eulogized my son, Nick, I said that he was my teacher and my hero. He was the kindest, gentlest man I know — no, the kindest, gentlest human being I know or have ever known. Did you know that he quit the Boy Scouts of America because they wanted to teach him to fire a handgun? Nick, too, poured into me the strength I needed and still need to tell the world about him. People ask me why I focus on putting the blame for my son's tragic and atrocious end on the Bush administration. They ask: "Don't...
  • UCSD Cancels Campus Showing Of Berg Video

    SAN DIEGO -- University of California, San Diego administrators made a last-minute decision today to cancel campus showings of the videotaped beheading of American civilian Nicholas Berg in Iraq. Ariel Mor, a 20-year-old UCSD political science sophomore, planned the event as "pro-American," saying he hoped it would increase support for U.S. troops deployed in the Middle East nation, according to news reports. Mor intended to show the eight-minute video repeatedly between noon and 3:30 p.m. on two 25-inch television sets on the La Jolla campus's central Library Walk. University officials decided the video did not violate student policy, after considering...

The website addresses are www.al-asnar.net and www.al-asnar.biz . Both websites have apparently been disabled by 'authorities.' The location of the web server is reportedly in Malaysia. However, the addresses of the publishers for these sites are located in London, England and Nurnberg, Denmark.

    VILLA PARK, Calif. - At least three teachers have been placed on paid leave following complaints they showed students the videotaped beheading of American Nicholas Berg in Iraq (news - web sites). Villa Park High School English teacher Stephen Arcudi allowed students to use his classroom computer to see video footage of Berg being executed, school officials said. "Because of our concern over his judgment and the way he handled the situation, we have put him on leave while we continue to investigate," said Orange Unified School District Assistant Superintendent Cheryl Cohen. Two other teachers were put on leave by...

    I just forced myself to watch it again and again and have altered what I understand about the video. There a total of FOUR places where the time skips around. The FIRST scene time stamp begins at 13:26:24 and runs until 13:26:27. It then skips to the SECOND scene 2:18:33 and runs to 2:18:43. The first two are statements by Berg. It then skips to the THIRD Scene at 2:40:33 with the Islamofascist making statements until 2:44:12 when they drag him to the floor by the hair. Berg appears calm and unconcerned but alert. Then the time stamp suddenly skips...

    A few seconds after Nick Berg is pushed over and the knife put to his neck the clock skips from 2:44:12 to 2:45:47 during the throat cutting. 1:35 of clumsy hacking and screaming were edited out. Islam requires a sharp knife and quick kill but this was not. The sound runs 5 to 7 seconds ahead of the video. That is why the yelling starts before anyone moves. The reader audibly clears his throat at 2:42:32 but covers his mouth at 2:42:38.

I mentioned an hour ago when the program started that I'd seen the execution of Nick Berg video, and I was being urged by people to describe it, and the reason I was being urged to describe it was because it's unspeakable. And what is done to us by our enemies we cannot see, we will not look at. We cannot discuss it because it's unspeakable, and yet a moral equivalence is attached to what is done to Americans and what some American prison guards did...

    The Sacred Muslim Practice of BeheadingBy Andrew G. BostomFrontPageMagazine.com | May 13, 2004 Reactions to the grotesque jihadist decapitation of yet another "infidel Jew," Mr. Berg, make clear that our intelligentsia are either dangerously uninformed, or simply unwilling to come to terms with this ugly reality: such murders are consistent with sacred jihad practices, as well as Islamic attitudes towards all non-Muslim infidels, in particular, Jews, which date back to the 7th century, and the Prophet Muhammad's own example. According to Muhammad’s sacralized biography by Ibn Ishaq, Muhammad himself sanctioned the massacre of the Qurayza, a vanquished Jewish tribe. He appointed...

    SAN DIEGO -- Two teachers are suspected of showing students video of American Nick Berg being decapitated, 10News reported. A social studies teacher from Grossmont High School in El Cajon allegedly showed students Wednesday a portion of the video, pictures and audio of the beheading, Grossmont Unified School District Superintendent Terry Ryan told 10News. Ryan said the teacher, Michael Smith, (pictured, far right), has been removed from the classroom pending a full investigation. Smith, an El Cajon native, graduated from Grossmont High School in 1983. Many of his students wore shirts Friday that read "Free Mr. Smith." Others, who also...

    Berg Video ^ | 5-13-04 | M. Peach
    I have yet to hear a logical explanation for the time lapse of over 13 hours from the time the executioner pulls out his knife to cut his head off, to the next scene where Nick Berg is on the ground struggling with his killers. The time goes from 2:44 to 13:45. One will also notice that the pictures then become very blurred and out of focus. At the beginning of the video, Berg is sitting alone in his chair at 13:26, then goes back to 2:18, then back to 2:40. Throughout Berg's narration, he seems relatively calm - as...

She cannot recall which one but it was one of the cable new stations (FOX, MSNBC, CNN) She said it showed the guys talking and then putting Berg on the floor and cutting his head. She said it went off the air very quickly, but for the split seconds of what she saw it was very upsetting. It was between 3:30pm-4:30pm EDT. I have not seen the video, nor do I want. But I would like...
