Turkish Hostage Murdered
UPDATE 9/13: Another Turkish hostage, Durmus Kumdereli, murdered today. The post, pics, and video can be found here.Update: I have the video linked. Scroll down. Via Jeff Quinton I learn the sad news that my running count of murdered hostages since 9/11 is up by one. I'll update the list as soon as I learn his name. Let us never forget the victims of the Religion of Peas. I've checked the website where Zarquawi's group usually posts their videos, but no pics are there. I'm assuming that they have opened up a new sub-domain extension for the video. I'll post it when I find it. Update: I just saw the video. It's posted at Ogrish (no link on purpose--it's a snuff site). Can somebody tell me why we haven't carpet bombed Falujah again? Update 2: Right on Red asks why Murat Yuce was shot rather than beheaded and wonders if it is because he was a Muslim. Possibly. Many fatwas have been cited in the mainstream press that condemn the beheadings. What is usually not reported is that if you read the fatwas carefully, the condemnation is often not about killing infidels per se, but about defiling the bodies. Since this is all PR for the jihadis, they have a vested interest in not pissing off their audience. Update 3: I found the video on a site that looks like they deserve some traffic. You can see it by clicking here or going to the Liberty Unites article (although the page says you must register to view video, if you click on the link under the pic and to the right it will take you directly there). Update 4: I have also posted a shortened version of the video here. No, I do not encourage wathcing this kind of thing for titilations sake. Why watch it? See this post. Update 4: Sober reminder from Kevin Aylward that "They're still another Turkish hostage being held by the group." Lest we forget, his name was Murat Yuce. His name was Murat Yuce. I've been trying to keep the hostages executed count accurate, but may be off. E-mail me if I'm missing anyone. The list only includes hostages murdered, not total victims of terrorism. 1) Murat Yuce (Aug. 1) 2)Raja Azad (July 28) 3) Sajad Naeem (July 28) 4) Georgi Lazov (July 13) (rant) 5) Ivaylo Kepov (presumed dead) (probably July 14) 6) Keith M. Maupin (June 28) 7) Kim Sun-il (June 22) 8) Paul Johnson (June 18) 9) Hussein Ali Alyan (June 12) 10) Nick Berg (May 12) 11) Fabrizio Quattrocchi (April 16) 12) Martin Burnham (June 7, 2002) 13) Daniel Pearl (Feb. 2, 2002)

Still, regardless, the list is tragic and the display of means by these barbaric individuals strengthens resolve.
My heart goes out to the families of these brave men.

We are a privileged people, a civilized people and all arguments about war and terrorism would end if they saw the barbaric nature of these people as well as the Israeli and Palestinians. Can you imagine getting used to picking up body pieces and parts as your normal day living?? Egads, the world sees it, but we don't and I feel we all should see it because that is the only way the people of the United States of America are really going to know what it is like over there and put an end to it. And how can taxes not be raised when we have to protect our country from these vicious people?? Oh I could go on and on.. but as it is, I'm trying to figure out how to get my own blog going where everything is there for every one to see. God Bless, keep up the good work and as Robbie Knieval said at Louden, NH - "Thank You President Bush for protecting our freedom!" Trust me, we are a very lucky country and a free people and THEY want to change that and the life we have as we know it now. We cannot let that happen!!
