Update 9/20/04: American Hostage Eugene Armstrong Beheading Video here.

Graphic pics posted in extended entry. In the Bullpen has graciously offered to host the video. Go HERE for video.


CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — An Islamic Web site posted still pictures Friday that purportedly show Iraqi militants beheading an Egyptian man they claim was spying for the U.S. military.
The pictures are posted at a web-site connected to terrorist zombie numero uno, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The pictures strike me as being in the same location as the last Egyptian 'CIA Agent' was murdered. (See previous posts: Beheading Victim Egyptian, Not American, Beheaded man 'not CIA agent', CIA Agent Executed: Another Beheading Video)

The victim and the alleged proof that he was wired.

EXTENDED ENTRY: Pics below news items. Last Warning


There was no way to verify the authenticity of the images, and there was no record that the man, identified on the Web site as Mohammed Fawzi Abdaal Mutwalli, had been kidnapped. The pictures are apparently stills from a video on the site that could not be accessed.

A second Web site, an English-language site that does not appear to have political links, carried the video of the beheading. Neither site gave a date for the killing.

The pictures and video were not connected to a video that emerged Wednesday purporting to show Iraqi militants beheading a man they alleged was a CIA agent. The victim in Wednesday's tape has not been identified.

Reports that Mutwalli had been killed first surfaced Wednesday, but Egyptian government officials have not confirmed his death. Mutwalli's family said they had not heard from him for 15 years.

Police officials said Mutwalli, 45, went to Iraq in 1986 to work as a car mechanic. He comes from the village of Saqr in Dakahlia province in the Nile Delta, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

His father, Fawzi Mutwalli, a 67-year-old watchman, said he only heard news of his son's purported killing from journalists Thursday.

"I have no idea. If he is dead, let me know, and send me his body," he said.

He said Egyptian security officials came Thursday to get information about his son but did not confirm the killing.

Although the family had not heard from Mutwalli for more than 15 years, the father dismissed suggestions his son could be a spy.

Mohammed is not educated. He can't speak English. How can he be a spy?" the elder Mutwalli said Friday.

There was no immediate comment from U.S. officials.

Until Friday, there had been no evidence of an Arab hostage having been beheaded by Iraqi militants acting for political motives. A Lebanese Muslim hostage, Hussein Alyan, was killed this year, but his kidnappers may have had criminal motives because they made no political demands to spare his life.

The latest images show three masked men standing in front of a banner carrying the name and golden-sun logo of Tawhid and Jihad, the group led by Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi that has claimed responsibility for beheading other hostages in Iraq, including American Nicholas Berg and South Korean translator Kim Sun-il.

The pictures show a man, with a mustache and wearing an Arabic robe, sitting in front of the three masked men with his hands tied behind his back. Captions on the pictures of the hostage say: "From the Arab Republic of Egypt. Mohammed Fawzi Abdaal Mutwalli. I was working as a spy with the Americans in Iraq."

A statement that appeared on the Web site alongside the pictures said: "This is the story of the Egyptian traitor spy."

"This criminal confessed that he was taking electronic devices from the Americans to throw them into the Mujahedeen's (holy warriors') locations so the Americans could identify the targets and raid them with planes and missiles," it said.

The sequential pictures then show the man lying on the ground. A militant decapitates him with a knife and places his severed head on his back.

In the video shown on the second Web site, the militant who kills the hostage says in Arabic: "Today we are executing God's punishment on this criminal by beheading him."

Pics Below. Before viewing the pics, answer me this: Are these beheading against the teachings of Islam?? Via Robert Spencer's Jihad Watch (please, read the whole thing), responding to a NRO article:
But is Akyol correct at least that Islam forbids the killing of captives? No:

When an adult male is taken captive, the caliph considers the interests ... (of Islam and the Muslims) and decides between the prisoner's death, slavery, release without paying anything, or ransoming himself in exchange for money or for a Muslim captive held by the enemy. [o9.14]

The caliph? But there is no caliph. Is that a way out? Probably not. The manual says that "It is offensive to conduct a military expedition against hostile non-Muslims without the caliph's permission," but "if there is no caliph, no permission is required" (o9.6).....

It's interesting that he quotes 47:4, because that verse contains one of the Qur'an's justifications for beheading:

Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens.

This is the key to Akyol's whole argument: he says that "after the war, they should be released for free or ransomed," in line with this verse's call for "generosity or ransom" at the point when "the war lays down its burdens." But the jihadists in Iraq do not believe that the war is over; far from it. They just declared jihad anew. As such, they would argue that it is not time for "generosity or ransom," but for the smiting "at their necks."

The legal manual 'Umdat al-Salik actually bases its choices on this verse: the Muslims may decide to kill, ransom or release prisoners based on what is best for the Islamic community. And that decision will no doubt be made on the basis of judgments about the status of the war and the prospects for a cessation of hostilities, however temporary.

Again, I suggest reading the whole thing.

Warning: Very Graphic!! Do not proceed!!! However, if you are an adult and wish to be reminded of 9/11--reminded of the sickness you felt--reminded of the anger you felt--go on.

1 Is it even plausable that there is a man seeking the presidency who believes that we need a more sensitive approach to dealing with these people? Are there any limits to Democrat self-hatred?

Posted by: Professor Chaos at August 13, 2004 12:04 PM

2 Unfortunately, we remain so "sensitive" we think it is a worse sin to honestly represent this material on television than to allow it to happen through our continued half-hearted approach to this fight. It is a bizarro world morality than prevents us from broadcasting this stuff on the evening news for fear it would enflame an entirely righteous rage. But then the lives of the victims matter less to the "sensitive" crowd than the preservation of their fantasy world.

3 You should have broken up the first clip in two pieces. Gawd, I hate these people. The man knew he was going to be killed, so how come he didn't move or react or anything like that? He wasn't even blindfolded. Remember they have immediate access to computers since they carry laptops and pda's and stuff around with them so whatever we read, they see as well. That's the scary part.

I know of a site who would be happy to host videos like these. Someone's been stealing from them without linking back and changing the whole thing and we know both those sites.

4 FBA -

IN Chechnya, Jihadis adopted the practice of drugging hostages to be beheaded as to eliminate much of the thrashing around that makes decaptiation difficult.

5 I am a muslem from Iran. Sitting here cold and horrorstricken after seeing these horrified pictures of beheading a Egyptian man! I apologise to human race regardless of their religion, color or their nationality in the name of Millions of true and decent Muslems around the world.

6 I have 2 words for these middle eastern bastards...NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST...wipe'em all out, men, women, doesnt matter who we capture or kill, there will always be another waiting in line to rant their bullshit religious fanaticism. They're like cockroaches, you need to eliminate them at the source. Nuke the Holy Land back to the stone age and let the batsards start again. Keep in mind....the Mighty Japanese Empire no longer casts a threat.

7 There is no room in this world for these kind of f-----g animals. I hope all the animals foregive me. There actualy worse than animals.

Posted by: Robert Rush at September 20, 2004 05:39 PM

8 They are no worse animals than the ones running this country. To stop the killings, remove all potential victims. Bring our boys and girls home and put them on border patrol. Stop the mofos from comming in and flush out the sleepers here. Protect us from another 9/11 first. There will always be someone saying their religion is better than the others. It has been going on since before religion was a word. It's not right to kill someone because of something they believe in. Bush has been wasting so much time and money destroying and rebuilding the middle east he has forgotten about the "sleeper" problem here. Cockroaches can't be killed at the source because there is no source. You have to start from the outside and drive them in. Starting at the "root" of the problem just scatters them into smaller and smaller groups. Once the groups start to breed then you have a bigger problem than you started with. This war is as backwards as they come. the son restarting something the father couldn't finish.

9 the Muslims are really sub-human creatures that came about as the result of their prophet fucking a camel

11 Dave? Dave are you in there?
I think you've hit on the perfect phrase to recite for the video camera just before one of these extremist sub human scum (no offence to scum intended) hacks your head off with a dull steak knife....and be sure to tell the guy hacking your head off that he was the result of the camel f*#$ing his mother....which he'd take as a compliment since the "prophet" f@#!ed the camel.... better say pig, I hear they're not fond of pigs... that'll sure piss him off...
But surely you can't believe that the actions of these few is representative of the whole Islamic world?... I sure as hell hope not.

12 What these terrorist have done is inhuman. America cant run away from these devilish acts against MAN! America has to show these sons of bitches that we will not F***ing mess around with their dumb ass demands. No nation is going to retreat out of Iraq just because they have one of their citizens. So.. I say a city for every head... That’s right you heard me. So if they cut off a head... well then goodbye city with all the citizens. (I say don’t even give them warning) That will stop those Smelly little terrorist. VOTE FOR BUSH!!!!!

Posted by: Miles at September 29, 2004 09:29 PM

13 Hmm, here is what I think...

You are acting irrationally if you think that a nuclear war is going to help. These are terrorists, not common Iraqi or Egyptian citizens. My solution would be to try and gain as much intelligence on their actions and movements as humanly possible (which, I guarantee is what the U.S. is doing now). Factions upon factions of these terrorists are running around, kidnapping, killing at will, and making the U.S. look unable to handle the situation. Like Sadam, they will eventually fall, and now that Iraq has been liberated, the threat of more Iraqi terrorists in future generations has starkly diminished. The same tactics must be implemented worldwide if anything is going to change.

But the americans and British armies shoulg go back 2 there own countrys to let IRAQ LIVE IN PEACE. they will leave them alone & so will the iraqis. MAY GOD BLESS THIS WORLD!

16 This was the second video I had seen. The first one I saw, I'm not sure what I expected, but I honestly did not expect to see that. I felt sick, I was shaking, and I started to cry. How the hell can these freaks of nature do that? I am still shaking right now as I type. I can't believe that they would do such a thing to another human being. I really think they all deserve the same punishment. SLOW and PAINFUL!!!

17 You see how useless and worthless all this bullshit is. We should either bomb the fuck out of Iraq or get the hell out. I'm tired of all of this. I have lost friends to all this senseless shit.

Posted by: yahya at May 07, 2005 02:27 PM

21 hi there well being a muslim what i think is ...that
In Islam we are not allowed to punish our enemy so badly. We are allowed to take revenge but not in such a way... I will say yeah its the wrong way to kill and show off that ur killing a person.

But believe me what happenes is these ppl in the clips are who are showing off are so brutally treated ... there mothers and sisters get raped by so called british and american armies there families are killed infront of thier eyes .... what do u think does it feels good watching ur own family geting killed infront of u .. u cant even imagine how they are treated .. which makes them do this else in Islam its not allowed like this ... well i watched an documentery on tv in pak in which a little boy was standing besides a american solider holding a notice board saying this guy standing next to me raped my sisters and my mother and killed my family isnt he great ....

the point is in usa or other countries these documentaries are not shown thats y ppl dont relize that whats happening. yeah ull be told ooohh iraqies killed so many americans and british soliders .. have u even been showed how many afghanis and iraqies are killed how r they killed i saw a picture of a 6 months old baby was shot on his chest .... now tell me what did that six months old baby had to do with politics ..or war did he even abused the killer ?
and then what do u think the father of that son whould not be standing there saying ohh u killed my son thats gr8 isnt it ... hes definatly gonna go mad

so brov these are the facts which make these ppl do this ...

well hope u understand what i am tryin to say :)
Regards :)

22 I'm not a muslim but what most of us americans don't understand is that the middle east people goes through a lot of shit worst than our own country. Now me as an american I do love this country, but I will acknowledge the wrongs that our leaders commit in the past has caused these countries to feel they've been kicked in the nuts!! Now you don't have to sympathize with what these people did. They kill these innocent citizens for just doing their job cuz working with the u.s. forces may be the only job they can get, but the most u should do is understand that these countries have wounds caused by the USA that could take years to heal. how can we help a country that has 2 sides? They have people who want us to stay and help, but at the same time they're are people who want us to get fuck out. If you're reading this, whether you are a muslim
christian or whatever, just pray cuz is just a matter of time that this war will end and hope that BUSH does not do anything stupid.....AGAIN!!!
